Two-time Olympic medallist Taylor Ruck has moved out of Arizona and will train in Toronto under Ben Titley. Ruck will now train at the Pan Am Sports Centre for the remainder of her senior year with 16-year-old four-time Olympic medalist Penny Oleksiak. Ruck, 17, won two bronze medals in Rio for swimming on the 4×100 and 4×200 free relays for her native Canada.

Ruck previously trained in Scottsdale, Arizona at Scottsdale Aquatics and will now train in Toronto to focus on the World Junior Championships that will be in Indianapolis, Indiana August 23-27. Ruck failed to qualify for the World Championships later this summer in Budapest.

Ruck led her high school, Scottsdale Chaparral, to three consecutive state titles and was three-time Arizona state girls swimmer of the year. Ruck is also one of the top college prospects in the class of 2018.
