Canadian Nationals Results: Tera Van Beilen Takes Second Breaststroke Title, Winning 100 Tonight

VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 3. TERA Van Beilen won her second event of the meet, taking the 100 breast in a close race at the finish.

Van Beilen’s 1:08.39 was a second off her lifetime best and three hundredths off the automatic qualifying time to make international racing. But the time stands eighth-fastest in the world, so her global ranking could be enough to get her on the international roster.

Bronwyn Pasloski was second in 1:08.59, beating her personal best of 1:09.80. Rachel Nicol took third with a 1:09.39.

In the B final, where international swimmers are racing tonight, Ireland’s duo of Fiona Doyle and Sycerin McMahon went 1-2 with times of 1:08.72 and 1:09.66, respectively.
