Congratulations to Finlay Knox for being selected to the National ID Team. This is a development tracking system organized by Swimming Canada. The National ID Team designation indicates that an athlete has achieved an "on track time" on one of three tiers. These times are extrapolations made by Swim Canada that indicate a swimmer is hitting certain age based benchmarks to qualify, make finals, or medal at the Olympics or World Championships. They will also be on a watch list for possible carding in coming years. Carding is how amateur athletes cover expenses in order to make their dreams a reality.
This is a great honour and representation to Finlay's hard work and dedication. It is great Swimming Canada is recognizing our future Olympians and national team members.
