Jon McKay wins second Silver Medal at Jr. Pan Pacific Championships

Jon McKay raced in the 10km Open Water race yesterday, winning his second silver medal of the competition after his club record performance in the 1500 Fr on Wednesday.  The junior Pan Pacific 10km race was combined with the senior Pan Pacific Championship open water field after their race was postponed due to water quality concerns, making the field much quicker and experienced than expected.  Jon stayed with the front pack until about 500m to go before falling back, easily beating all but one of the junior competitors.  With two silver medals, Jon comes away from the meet as the best Canadian.  Way to go Jon!

Vicky Mock also impressed in the 10km race, coming in 7th place of the juniors in a field of 14, and was the top Canadian, way to go Vicky!
