Some competitors in a local swim meet this past weekend are hoping to race at the national level this summer.
The Yukon Invitational Championship Swim Meet was held from April 29-30 at the Canada Games Centre in Whitehorse.
Swimmers from the Whitehorse Glacier Bears Swim Club competed in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and medley timed final events.
Sabine Keesey was one of the athletes racing against the clock in hopes of qualifying for the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games set to take place from Aug. 6 to Aug. 21.
“Most of my events have been pretty exciting,” she said after competing in the 100-metre butterfly timed finals. “I think it’s going really well.”
Eleven meet records and four club records were broken during the event, meet manager Fraser Pearce said in an email following the competition on April 30.
