Canadian Nationals Results: Yuri Kisil Takes First National Title In 100 Free

VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 3. AFTER being left on the blocks at the start, Yuri Kisil fought back to post his first national title, taking the 100 freestyle in a 49.87.

It’s his first time under 50 seconds, with his best time of 51.44 done last month. Second place went to Dominique Massie-Martel with a 49.98 to also mark his first time under 50 seconds. Massie-Martel was the only swimmer under 24 seconds at the 50-meter mark, posting a 23.99. Third place went to Luke Peddie with a 50.41, while Stefan Milosevic’s 50.76 might be used to help get a 400 free relay qualified for international competition.

“The sky’s the limit,” Kisil said after his win that missed out on automatic qualification for the international racing squad. Kisil could get in on other criteria using world rankings and administrative discretion.

Two collegiate swimmers were in the top two of the B final, the highest heat international swimmers could race. Stanford’s Tom Kremer won the B final with a 50.17 with Indiana’s Anze Tavcar posting a 50.70.
