Canaqua Welland Canal OWS (Open Water Swim)

Where to begin? Beautiful day… check.  Beautiful water… check (it was reportedly 24 deg but wetsuits were allowed).  Beautiful venue… check.  What more do you want in an open water swim event?  With 100 or so athletes competing in the 4 different distances (1k, 2.5k, 5k and 10k), the Welland International Flatwater Centre was bustling. Awesome to see the sport growing. Alright, enough of the chit chat… lets get to the results of the 1k event:

  • Andres [1k wetsuit] swam a time of 22:41mins improving upon last years time of 27:17 (a P.B. of 4:36mins…WOW!) & was 1st in M45-49

  • Tom [1k wetsuit] swam a time of 22:20mins improving upon last years time of 23:54mins & was 1st in the M60-64

  • Gabe [1k no wetsuit] swam a time of 19:02mins improving upon last years time of 20:31 & was 1st U17M

  • and Carolina [1k no wetsuit] who hurt her elbow a week ago while MTB’g @ Kelso swam respecting her RT arm, focused on a new level of symmetry in her swim stroke finished in a time of 16:44, and even swimming well within her limits was 1st in W45-49. Plus to prepare for the Stroke&Strides Series Finale [aquathlon event] coming up at the end of August, Gabe & Carolina put in a 5k training run immediately after their swims.

In the 2.5k open water swim event:

  • The team twins swam side by side with Tanya just nudging out Patricia at the finish timing mat by 1sec: Tanya finished in 49:58mins [wetsuit] and Patricia in 49:59mins [wetsuit], swimming pace times of 2:00/100m and both swimming this distance for the first time and both ladies were 1st in their respective age categories W40-44 and W50-54.

  • Juan decided not only to challenge himself with this longer distance event, and he also challenged himself to do it no-wetsuit… wow!  Juan finished in a time of 51:26 and was 3rd in the U17M category.

Absolutely amazing work team… the progress is off the charts and evidence of the work you put in all winter in dryland and more recently the sport specific work you’ve done both in the pool and training in open water.  Congrats!

What a weekend!  TOESTees outperformed once again.  Conquering new events or challenging ourselves to set a personal best in an event with an existing time, we did it all. Last year in Nepean, 4 TOESTees took the podium, this year… we had 6 athletes each take at least 1 podium. In addition, Kate took not only the podium twice, she is the OMSC Age Group Champ in the 50 Fly (42.91 secs) and Carolina – who medaled in each of her events – finished the meet as OMSC Age Group Champ in: the 400 IM (6:07), 800 FR (10:57), 50 FLY (33.61 secs), 200 IM (2:52), and 200 FR (2:28).

Notable performances…

The teams’ set of twins – Patricia & Tanya – both set personal records in the 400FR, Patricia swam a time of 7:23 (a 24sec P.B.) and Tanya swam 7:17 (a 17sec P.B.);  they also both swam to personal bests in the 800FR with Tanya finishing in 14:52 and Patricia in 15:03.

Tom swam at his first ever Provincial Champs and challenged himself for the first time with the 100FR and the 50BR events and swam on all 3 relays helping the team score valuable points for overall standings.

Most notably: in only his 2nd year of competing (and 2nd full season of swimming…he learnt how to swim in 2017) Andres took 16secs off his 100FR time posting a new time of 1:40.53, 18secs off his 200BR (4:11.86), and completed for the first time the 200FR event.

Congratulations team!  Next up we finish the year at the Milton Masters Spring Splash.  Lets try out some new events, bring out some new swimmers and have a great time in Milton as we always do.
