Men’s 100 fly PARA

Alex Elliot raced his way to a win in the S10 division with a 58.24.  Philippe Vachon finished second overall in 1:07.93 in the S9 division, while Zach Zona clocked a third-place 1:11.14 out of the S8 division.

Women’s 200 fly

Canadian record holder Audrey Lacroix clinched her spot on the Olympic team in the 200 fly with a winning effort of 2:08.58.  That swim was well off her 2009 national record of 2:05.95, but was enough to clear the FINA A cut of 2:09.33. That’s Lacroix’s third Olympic team.

Katerine Savard, who made the Olympic team via the 800 free relay earlier in the week, finished second in 2:10.82.  That was not strong enough to punch her ticket to Rio in this event.

Sophie Marois placed third overall in 2:14.47, while Jacomie Strydom wound up fourth in 2:14.50.

Men’s 100 free

Santo Condorelli raced his way onto the 2016 Rio Olympic squad with a 48.16 in the 100 free.  That was off his earlier time of 48.09 that ranks him seventh in the world, but was enough to secure an Olympic spot.

Yuri Kisil will join him in the individual event after clocking a FINA A cut time of 48.58.

Markus Thormeyer (49.38) and Evan Van Moerkerke (49.75) put themselves in position for potential 400 free relay duty by taking third and fourth.

Mirando Jarry (49.94) and Karl Krug (49.97) placed fifth and sixth as the only other sub-50s of the night.

Women’s 200 IM

Sydney Pickrem grabbed the national title in the women’s 200 IM as she also clinched a second spot on the Olympic team with a 2:11.81.  That moved her to 11th in the world rankings.

Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson raced her way to second with a 2:12.47 that also beat the FINA A cut of 2:14.26 to clinch the second spot on the Olympic roster.

Kylie Masse (2:13.73) and Sarah Darcel (2:14.93) finished third and fourth behind the top two finishers.

Women’s 50 fly PARA

Tammy Cunningham downed her own world record in the S4 division of the 50 fly with a time of 52.90.  This morning she posted a 53.10 that destroyed her previous world mark of 56.14 from 2015.

Sarah Mehain topped everyone with a 37.89 in the S7 division.  Tara-Anne D’Souza clocked a 57.23 in the S6 division, while Valerie Drapeau put up a 1:25.87 in the S5 division.

Men’s 50 fly PARA

Jean-Mic Lavalliere won the finale in 33.64 from the S7 division.  Nathan Clement took second in a time of 34.28 out of the S6 division.  Kyle McMahon claimed third in 38.79 from S7 division.

Danial Murphy led the S5 division with a 47.87, while Riley McLean posted an S4 division swim of 1:00.45.
