The Saskatoon Goldfins Swim Club will be taking a record number 58 swimmers to compete in the 2022 Prairie Winter International swim meet.  This meet is a four-day competition featuring preliminary and finals sessions.  Over the course of the weekend, Goldfins swimmers will compete in 368 individual events and in 12 relay events. 

"Excitement is building as Goldfins swimmers complete their final preparations prior to heading off to compete in the 2022 Prairie Winter International," said, Saskatoon Goldfins Head Coach, Steven Hitchings.  "This year the Goldfins will be sending two busses to the meet filling the Pan Am pool with 58 Goldfins swimmers!  The Prairie Winter International always produces fast racing and a terrific environment for swimmers to showcase all the hard work they have put in over the fall months.  Of course, taking place right before the holidays creates an extra layer of energy, and just maybe a little Holiday Magic."
