Re: Summit Awards Guest Speaker

Dear Members,

Two things:

  1. We can confirm our guest speaker for the Summit Awards this year will be none other than Olympic bronze medallist Brent Hayden.
  2. The deadline for signing up to attend the Summit Awards has been extended to Monday Morning in order to allow more people an opportunity to come.

The Summit Awards is open to all competitive members, their family and their friends. Yes, it is a celebration of last year’s swimming achievements but it is also an opportunity to come and interact as a part of the Cascade community outside of the pool setting, enjoy a delicious meal at the Italian Centre and give your swimmer a chance to hear from some world class athletes.

This year we are very excited to be able to announce that honorary Calgarian Brent Hayden will be our keynote speaker. Brent, who led the Canadian men to a 4th place finish at the Tokyo Olympic Games 4x100m freestyle relay, is also the bronze medalist in the 100m freestyle from the London 2012 Olympic Games. Amongst his many other titles and accolades he is a former World Champion & Commonwealth Champion in the 100m freestyle and the current Canadian record holder in a number of other events. Brent finished his professional swimming career as a member of the Toronto Titans of the ISL (International Swimming League).

Not only that, not only that but also we are going to have a special panel event with Brent; last year’s World Champion in the mixed 4x50m freestyle relay Yuri Kisil; Tokyo 2020 Olympic team member Cole Pratt; and 2022 World Championships bronze medallist Ingrid Wilm. This is a great opportunity to hear from Brent and Cascade’s three national team members, maybe snap a pic or two along with an autograph in what we are sure will be an inspiring conversation on swimming.

Registration will remain open until Monday morning the 7th of November.
