Whitehorse Glacier Bear swimmer Rennes Lindsay kept an amazing medal haul, spanning three years, going at the Dino Cup swim meet in Calgary, Alta., over the weekend.
At the 10-and-under meet, Lindsay won gold in the 100-metre freestyle, 50-metre butterfly, 100-metre individual medley (IM), 200-metre IM, 50-metre freestyle, 100-metre butterfly. She also captured silver in the 50-metre breaststroke.
Like last year, her results made her the overall aggregate winner.
In her first two appearances at the Dino Cup, Lindsay didn’t lose a single race, accumulating a total of 16 gold medals. She now has 22 gold and a silver.
“Rennes excels and has done well over the years because she has really good stroke technique,” said Glacier Bears coach Kat Zrum. “She has good strokes all around, so she’s not just a strong freestyler. She has a good fly, has been working on her breaststroke and she’s a decent backstroker.
“She’s a good, focused swimmer and really trains hard – she has a good training ethic.”
