Canadian Nationals Results: Evan White Crushes Field With 200 IM Meet Record

VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 5. OAKVILLE’s Evan White made it public that the 18-year-old was gunning for Ketih Beavers’ Canadian record in the men’s 200-meter IM, and came up a bit short of the mark at the Canadian Nationals.

White, who went out under record pace through the 150-meter mark with a 1:30.07, did not have the freestyle leg to take down the national record as he settled for the title in1:59.84. That time still put him fourth in the SwimVortex world rankings behind only Kosuke Hagino (1:55.90), Daiya Seto (1:58.12) and Daniel Tranter (1:59.06). In fact, only one other swimmer has broken 2:00 this year with Daniel Wallace clocking a 1:59.95 in Scotland. Notably, White beat Andrew Ford’s meet record of 2:00.03 from a year ago.

Luke Reilly raced his way into a distant second with a time of 2:03.79, while David Riley touched third overall in 2:04.19.
