Canada will be using this week’s Pan Pacific Championship as a final trial for their swimmers before the Pre-Olympic Selections.
Their team’s current squad was selected back in April and have gone through numerous trials before arriving to our shores last week.
Canada National Development Coach- Ken Mckinnon says they will be fielding 30 swimmers for the four days competition.
“We had a trial in April to select the swimmers to compete at the Junior Pan Pac. We arrived in last Friday and have been testing the pools here for quite a few days now.”
He adds rounding up this batch was challenging and they had to organise a few more trials to determine the best.
