2023 CANADIAN SWIMMING TRIALS

We’re back with another day of action at the 2023 Canadian trials, which serve as a selection meet for the 2023 Canadian world championships meet. On Friday night, finals of the 200 fly, 100 free, 50 breast, as well as the para 100 fly and 50 free will be contested

The two big headliners of tonight are the top seeds in the men’s and women’s 200 fly, Ilya Kharun and Summer McIntosh. Kharun is coming in as the top seed in arguably his best event, and looks to further lower his best time of 1:54.49. Meanwhile, McIntosh will be aiming for her third record of the meet after breaking the 400 free world record and the 200 IM world junior record early on.

Another race to look out for is the 100 free, where top seeds Maggie MacNeil and Josh Liendo will lead their respective fields. In the women’s 100 free, there is opportunities for newcomers to potentially break out with Canada’s staple 100 freestylers Penny Oleksiak and Taylor Ruck not racing at this meet. Meanwhile, Liendo looks to better his time of 48.65 from the morning and inch closer and closer towards Brent Hayden’s Canadian record.
