Youth Olympic Games Day 1

07 October 2018 (Buenos Aires, Argentina) - Day 1 preliminaries at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games are underway where our head coach, Dave Johnson, is leading the Canadian team at the games. Sebastian Somerset is our Cascade representative at the event while Alexander Pratt withdrew from the team to look after a nagging shoulder injury over the summer.

Somerset swam the prelims of the 100m backstroke this morning in 56.84 for 12th overall. That puts Sebastian into the semi finals tonight happening at 3:00PM Mountain (6:00PM Argentinian time) where he will be up against some of the very best 18&U swimmers in the world including the World’s Junior Record Holder from Russia, Kliment Kolesnikov.
