Swim talk with Bronwyn Pasloski- 23rd December 2015
Dear Swimmers and Parents,
Former WGB swimmer, Bronwyn Pasloski is coming back to Whitehorse for Christmas. She kindly agreed to spend an hour with us. Bronwyn will talk about her swimming career, her beginning in Whitehorse, her scholarship for swimming and her best results. Bronwyn will also answer the swimming questions that any of our club members will have.
Swimmers- please ask some questions, you might not have a chance to talk to Bronwyn in the near future, she is very busy and she is not coming back to town often.
Please join us on 23rd December at 6:00pm, in the boardroom at CGC. The talk is scheduled to be over at 7:00pm. All members are welcome, special our swimmers, who would like to follow the route of the champions.
Here you can find a short swimming story from Bronwyn:
As a Glacier Bear, I attained qualifying times for AAA’s, Canadian Age Group Nationals, Western Nationals, and Sr. Nationals. I was invited to several Team British Columbia training camps and travel teams. I represented Team Yukon at Western Canada Games and Canada Games, and represented Team Canada in several international meets, including trips to United States, Europe, and Australia. Today many of the WGB club records I set still stand.
As a senior at Vanier Catholic Secondary School I signed a letter of intent with Indiana University and received a full scholarship for swimming. In August, 2010 I left for Bloomington, Indiana to become a freshman at IU – and a member of their Division 1 NCAA Swimming and Diving program. I was honoured for my leadership qualities and was named as a team captain in my senior year. I medalled individually and helped the Hoosiers claim a “BIG 10” Team Championship Title. I am the IU All-Time record holder in 3 events and have earned a BIG 10 conference record in the 400 medley relay. I am honoured to have become NCAA Div. 1 Honorary All American five times.
During my time at school, I still continued to compete
in Canada. Over the past 3 years, I have been consistent with top 8
finishes at senior national meets in all of the breaststroke
events. My best times include:
100 LCM breaststroke 1:08.5, 200 LCM breaststroke 2:30.0, 50 LCM breaststroke 31.7, 200 LCM IM 2:17.3.
I have recently completed my baccalaureate in Science in Kinesiology and have moved to Calgary in order to train full time with Cascade Swim Club leading up to the 2016 Canadian Olympic Trials.
