Lily Chen dropped slightly to 17th spot in 50m Back in spite of improving on her prelim time at 31.3, while training partner, Benn, came in at 31.04, a PB, at 14th. Jake Rambo rose to his jammed packed evening of 3 individual swims plus the 4x200 Relay. His first go was in 50 Back where he improved his position from 7th to 6th and dropped 4 tenths of second to 27.2, just over his record setting form last week.

In 100m Breaststroke Kali Lancaster raced in her first national level final to a PB at 1:16.7 to finish in 15th. Laura Rincon was disappointed with her swim but dropped a scant .07 to finish 15th in the 16 and Over division. UVic Vikes', Andrea Farmer, improved on her prelim performance at 1:17 moving up slightly to 16th in 17 and over. Ian Goodyear (representing COMOX) dropped over 5 seconds rising to silver in Para.

The final individual event was the gruelling 400IM. Sydney Meldrum was just over her AM PB at 5:19 for 18th. Acacia Benn placed 10th at 5:11. Tom Chapman had another stellar performance (after yesterday’s 6 sec drop in 200m Breast). His prelim time of 4:50 put him into the A final in the outside lanes. He had a very aggressive front half that put him, well into the race and he sent it all the way, taking over 4 seconds off his best and snagging the Bronze at 4:39. Teammate Jake Rambo was motivated seeing his buddy best his PB. Rambo lead start to finish and stripped 4 seconds off his best to take Gold in 4:36.


Five minutes after completing his 3rd even of the night Rambo helped his team (Ogilvie, Cowan, Murdock) to 4th spot in the 4x200 Free Relay.
