Western Canadian Champs 2015

The longer a competition goes on with heats, finals, triumph and disappointment, early mornings, late evenings and thousands of meters done in preparation for a competition, the more competitors get weeded out. 4-5-6 day meets and multiple competitions in succession are part of top level swimming. Only teams that come in healthy and fit and who stick together can show perserverance and presence of mind in the finals sessions of a major competition. Today was such a day for the PCS athletes who showed up enthusiastic and competitive this morning.
