Canadian Nationals Results: Victoria Poon Dominates 100 Free Final

VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 3. VICTORIA Poon’s victory in the 100 freestyle to open tonight’s competition at the Canadian long course nationals was never in jeopardy, as she cruised to a berth on the international team.

Poon’s 54.67 gave her automatic selection to the Canadian team that will attend the Commonwealth Games and Pan Pacific championships, having beaten the 55.05 that ranked 16th at last year’s world championships. The time ranks her 11th in the world standings.

Finishing second in the race was Sandrine Mainville, taking her second event of the meet after capturing the 50 fly win last night with a 55.29. Alyson Ackman was third with a 55.48 while Michelle Williams was fourth with a 55.57 to give Swimming Canada four times to add and consider for relay entry into this summer’s meets.
