Congratulations to Finlay Knox for getting gold medals in 200 IM, 200 BR, and 100 BR. Unfortunately, Finlay got disqualified for his turn in the 400 IM otherwise he was in a good position for another gold medal. Finlay also placed 9th in the 100 FLY in the B final, even though his time would have put him 4th in the A Final.
From World Championship Trials and Western Nationals Finlay has been selected to represent Team Alberta at this summers Canada Summer Games. This is a first for our club and a huge achievement for Finlay to represent our small club as well as the province on the national stage this summer.
