Day Three Summary

UVPCS climbs the team ranking strikes gold again.

Day four preliminaries were a bit soft for the team. It was a strong day on paper for the Victoria crew but the athletes had some challenges staying focused as the days lengthen. As result the team had a numbers of prelim swims that ended just out of the finals.

This evenings performances showed little of that. Once on the blocks our athletes showed their tough competitive nature.
