With the UCSC troops scattered all over country for competitions this weekend there’s lots of racing action going on. The crew in Edmonton is off to a good start. We're a small team (compared to our normal representation) but there have been lots of big swims!

Day 1 & 2

Diana Dunajska, Kealeigh McLeod and Aiden Norman were the sole representatives in the distance events on Thursday. Each of them raced themselves to a best time. They were happy with their results. Both Diana and Kealeigh felt they had a bit too much left in the tank at the end of their swims. Aiden comment on how strong he felt at the end of his swim and was able to push through the fatigue.

Friday was a great day. Our numbers are a bit smaller than we are used to. Since there is no team travel everyone is on a different schedule but we are sticking together as a team and represent as best we can. There were lots of good swims in the morning/ Swimmers are learning that they need to be at their best to make it through to the finals. They are eager to perform and make changes to technique and tactics as needed.

The walls in the pool have posed a challenge to starts and turns. However, the dinos are quick to adapt and adjust their strategies.
