Open Water at AGN 2015

It was a stormy, cold morning at Lac-Beauport just outside of Quebec City but that didn't stop two PCS swimmers from making a trip to the podium.  Anthony Gutierrez collected his first AGN gold medal, winning the 12&U boys 2.5km race, despite cutting up his leg on a rock at the start.  Next, in the 17-18 year old boys 5km race, Justin Howe came out 5th in an exciting last 100 meter finish. The lone female swimmer, Erin Jennings did not disappoint in the 14 year old 5km race.

PCS Swimmer Wins Worlds!

Aurelie Muller, an Open Water swimmer from France, came to train and compete with coach Ron Jacks and Pacific Coast Swimming from September through February this season.  Before arriving, she was a promising international open water swimmer, and came to Canada to really focus on Open Water with an eye on the Olympics and an Olympic Medal.
