VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 3. WRAPPING up the theme of athletes taking second titles tonight, Russell Wood clinched the win in the 50 backstroke tonight to go along with his 100 back from last night. Wood's time of 25.69 put a bit of a scare into Pascal Wollach's national record of 25.23 and meet record of 25.37.

The event is not being used for selection to the Commonwealth Games or Pan Pacific championships, but it's good enough for Wood's second win of the meet. Tim Zeng placed second with a 26.28 while Josh Dow took third with a 26.37.
