500 swimmers to compete in Saskatoon this weekend

The Saskatoon Goldfins are hosting the Brainsport Winter Classic Swim Meet from Feb. 10 - 12, 2017 at The Shaw Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.


Goldfins Head Coach Paul Armstrong said, "The Shaw Centre is a World Class facility and clubs around the country have recognized that Saskatoon is a great place to come and race. Our Meet Organizing Committee and the Shaw Centre Staff have done an outstanding job hosting high caliber competitions for a number of years and their efforts are paying off. There are a lot of fast swimmers competing this weekend and I can't wait to get things underway".


This will be the largest Saskatchewan swim meet so far this year, where swimmers from 7 to 21 years old will compete. The athletes will be travelling from as far away as Alberta, and from all over Saskatchewan. The Goldfins are expecting an exciting, fast paced swim meet with hundreds of fans attending to cheer on the swimmers.


There will be great opportunities for photos and stories this weekend for the Media, and perhaps more records broken.
