In 2009 Megan Liang did a great job at the Speedo CAN-AM para swim championships at Edmonton, Canada on 7/30 to 8/1. The IPC classification put Megan in the class of S9. Being in a big meet for the first time, she was a bit nervous at the beginning but once the competition started, she was doing fine. She had personal best time for 5 events, dropping 8 sec on 200BK. She got into 6 finals out of 7 events she swam. She placed 2nd on 200BK, 4th on 50FR, 5th on 200IM and 6th on 100FR, 100BK and 100FR. She met a few new friends and got to know some coaches and swimmers of the USA Paralympics team. She was excited to see a few world records set in the meet and get to swim in the same heats at the finals with some of the fast swimmers who hold the American and world records. It was a great learning experience for Megan. Megan, we love you and could not be more proud of you!
