Canadian Swimming Trials - Day 4 Report

07 April 2019 (Toronto, ON) - The fourth day of the meet here in Toronto brought more fun and excitement for your Cascade swimmers as they competed in the 200m butterfly, both in the regular meet and in the time trials and the 50 breaststroke - it was a relatively light day for everyone.

In the 50m breaststroke Isabelle Roth was within a couple of 100ths of her best getting to 34.02.

In the time trials we had an 8 second best time by Sebastian Somerset in the 200m freestyle cracking 2min for the first time to get to 1:57.04. 

Sho Neilson and Mathieu Cyr swam that 200m .butterfly in the time trials and both went lifetime best times in 2:14.29 (Matt) and 2:17.29 (Sho). The time by Sho was a Neilson family record for 200m butterfly done in a time trial - the previous record was set by his cousin last year at this same meet in a time of 2:30.00. The new record should stand for some time after this 13 second drop by Sho.

In the “A” final of the 200m butterfly Cole Pratt who had qualified 4th in 2:01.95 which was just a couple of tenths off of his best time. At night, Pratt was a bit stronger getting down to 1:59.89 for his very first time under two minutes and the bronze medal.
