2019 Ontario Masters Swimming Champs (OMSC)
@Markham Pan Am Pool, March 22-24
What a weekend! TOESTees outperformed once again. Conquering new events or challenging ourselves to set a personal best in an event with an existing time, we did it all. Last year in Nepean, 4 TOESTees took the podium, this year… we had 6 athletes each take at least 1 podium. In addition, Kate took not only the podium twice, she is the OMSC Age Group Champ in the 50 Fly (42.91 secs) and Carolina – who medaled in each of her events – finished the meet as OMSC Age Group Champ in: the 400 IM (6:07), 800 FR (10:57), 50 FLY (33.61 secs), 200 IM (2:52), and 200 FR (2:28).
The teams’ set of twins – Patricia & Tanya – both set personal records in the 400FR, Patricia swam a time of 7:23 (a 24sec P.B.) and Tanya swam 7:17 (a 17sec P.B.); they also both swam to personal bests in the 800FR with Tanya finishing in 14:52 and Patricia in 15:03.
Tom swam at his first ever Provincial Champs and challenged himself for the first time with the 100FR and the 50BR events and swam on all 3 relays helping the team score valuable points for overall standings.
Most notably: in only his 2nd year of competing (and 2nd full season of swimming…he learnt how to swim in 2017) Andres took 16secs off his 100FR time posting a new time of 1:40.53, 18secs off his 200BR (4:11.86), and completed for the first time the 200FR event.
Congratulations team! Next up we finish the year at the Milton Masters Spring Splash. Lets try out some new events, bring out some new swimmers and have a great time in Milton as we always do.
