The meet is called Far Western Championships and is an outdoor meet located in the San Fransisco region of California.

Midsummer Madness Thank You!

The Mid Summer madness went off without a hitch again this year. This small meet gives the swimmers a chance to swim short course after the long course season and often turns out some fast swims. Young swimmers who choose to take part often make a few surprising finals and pick up a cup of jelly beans by winning an event.

Calgary Cascade and Wayland Swim Club from Richmond joined us this year and a good time was had by all the swimmers. Relays at the beginning of each nights finals allowed lots of swimmers to be involved in the fun atmosphere.

World Championships Update in Times Colonist!

The podium can be fleeting.

Swimmer Richard Weinberger of Victoria found that out when he followed up his breakthrough bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics with a sharply disappointing 17th-place finish at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

A chance for redemption comes today, when Weinberger jumps into the water in the men’s 10K open-water race of the 2017 FINA world aquatics championships in Budapest.
