COQUITLAM, British Columbia, November 17. 14-year-old Noemie Thomas of the UBC Dolphins started the 2010-2011 season with a bang, coming out of her first short course meters competition with two Canadian age-group records this past weekend.
On day one of the Hyack Fall into Finals invitational in Coquitlam, British Columbia she crushed the 22-year old Canadian age-group record for 13-14 girls with her 2:13.17 in the 200m butterfly. Her splits; 29.35, 33.21, 34.63, 36.02. The old record stood since 1988 to Sandra Marchand at 2:13.75.
Also during the first day she posted a very quick 26.74 butterfly split in the 4x 50 Medley Relay. On the second day of competition she bested a 2-year-old National mark in the 100m Butterfly with her 1:00.19 (28.83 / 31.36). This swim beat the former record held by Tasha Truscott since 2008 of 1:00.40.
Thomas comes off a successful summer, taking the Bronze medal at the Canadian Summer Nationals in Victoria in the 100m butterfly, as well as Bronze in the 4×100 Medley Relay at the Junior Pan Pacs in Kihei, HI in August – both meets she also swam to new National age-group records in the 100m butterfly long course.
