VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 2. THE future of women's breaststroke looks strong for Canada, based on the results of the 200 breaststroke at the Canadian nationals that looks to select up to three for each individual event.

Tera Van Beilen, who points more toward the 100 breaststroke, won the longer race with a 2:26.66 to beat out a close field of four women looking to get on the international squad. Kierra Smith, who recently raced in the championship final of the 200 breast at the NCAA championships, placed second with a 2:26.74, a second off her lifetime best of 2:25.78. Martha McCabe, who was struggling with shoulder injury, placed third with a 2:27.03. All three beat the qualifying standard of 2:28.13, which represents the 16th-fastest time from last summer's world championships.

Ashley McGregor also beat the qualifying time with a 2:27.11 but placed fourth.
