Canadian Nationals Results: Kier Maitland Opens Meet With Convincing 800 Free Win

VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 2. THE 2014 long course Canadian nationals, serving as the selection meet for the Commonwealth Games in Scotland and the Pan Pacific championships in Australia, kicked off with the men’s 800 freestyle.

With the Commonwealth Games not featuring the men’s 800 freestyle, the event was not being used to pick members of the international squads. This would explain the absence of such talents as national record holder Ryan Cochrane and NCAA runner-up Jeremy Bagshaw. Kier Maitland, who could challenge for a spot on the international team later in the meet, opened up his competition with an 8:02.69 to win by nearly 25 meters. It’s just off his personal best, an 8:01.61 from back in 2010.

Kyle Watson won the battle for second over Wyatt Yarish, 8:18.29 to 8:19.13.
