Caldwell breaks more swimming records

White Rock Swimmer back on World Cup circuit after FINA World Championships

A week after she set a new Canadian record record in the pool at FINA World Championships, White Rock’s Hilary Caldwell is at it again.

Caldwell, fresh off a bronze-medal win in the 200-m backstroke at worlds, returned to the World Cup circuit, where, in Eindhoven, Netherlands, placed fifth in the 100-m back – in a time of 57.97 seconds. – and was fourth in the 200-m.

Her 100-m time was enough to set a new B.C. Open record, while her mark in the 200-m – which was 2:02.56 – shattered the existing Canadian short-course record.

A few days later in Berlin, Caldwell – a Pacific Sea Wolves Swim Club alum – followed that performance by swimming to a fifth-place finish in the 200-m back, and a sixth in the 100-m.

Also this week, another member of the Sea Wolves, Olyvvia Chow, had a pair of top-10 finishes at the Canada Games in Sherbrooke, Que.

Chow, who will swim for McMaster University in Hamilton this fall, placed sixth in the 100-m breaststroke and seventh in the 50-m breast. She was also 11th in the 200-m distance. As well, Chow was a member of two Team BC relay groups to finish fourth, in both the 4×50 and 4×100 medley events.

Age-group nationals

Members of the Pacific Sea Wolves had a handful of top-10 finishes at Canadian age-group swim championships earlier this month in Montreal.

As a team, the Sea Wolves placed 26th overall, with the PSW boys finishing 19th.

Among the standout performers was Esmee Smit-Anseeuw, 14, who won silver in the 100-m and 200-m butterfly, placed fifth in the 400-m individual medley, and eighth in the 50-m fly; Alex Blaskovich, 14, who won gold in the five-km open-water swim and was fourth in the 800-m and 1,500-m free; and Edwin Zhao, 16, who won gold in the 200-m back, silver in the 800-m freestyle and bronze in the 1,500-m free and had a top-10 finish in five other events.

Mason Lin, 16, was fifth in the 400-m IM and seventh in the 200-IM; Darian Fry, 16, was sixth in the 50-m free; Aksel Smit-Anseeuw was fifth in the five-km open-water swim and Lydia Doyon, 15, was seven in the girls five-km open-water event.
