Crisp closes out nationals in dramatic fashion - U Sports Championships Day 3

VICTORIA – Four years ago, local athlete Lauren Crisp wanted nothing to do with swimming and thought she raced her last lap inside Saanich Commonwealth Place.

Three years later, she changed her mind and now has a pair of U SPORTS National Swimming Championship medal to show for it.

"It's crazy. It's insane. I can't believe I actually medalled - twice," said Crisp. "It still feels super surreal for me, coming back this year after three years, I never really considered this to be an option for me."
