VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 2. BRITTANY MacLean, fresh off a successful campaign at the NCAA championships in the United States, posted a big win in the 200 freestyle tonight at the Canadian long course nationals.

MacLean took off in the final 50 meters to post a 1:57.57 to win, beating her personal best of 1:58.09 from 2012. Samantha Cheverton took second in a 1:59.28, while Alyson Ackman placed third in 1:59.60 to round out the competitors under two minutes in the event.

The event was the first race of the night to get swimmers onto the Commonwealth Games and Pan Pacific teams. The qualifying time was 1:58.93, which was the 16th-fastest time at last summer's world championships. MacLean got under that standard with a lifetime best. Canada could field an 800 free relay if the cumulative time of the top four beat the 7:57.41 standard.
