VICTORIA (CIS) – The Jury of Appeal at the 2015 Speedo CIS swimming championships has determined that the University of British Columbia men’s 4×100-meter freestyle relay swam with an event-specific ineligible athlete due to an administrative error in the championship final contested on Thursday, Feb. 19. As a result, UBC’s time and result in that event have been ruled null and void.

Results for the men’s 4×100 free have been adjusted to award Toronto, Alberta and Calgary the gold, silver and bronze medals, respectively. The podium finish for the event is now as follows:

1. Toronto, 3:26.29 (Chris Manning, Mitch Ferraro, Kent Kikot, Oliver Straszynski)
2. Alberta, 3:27.97 (Joe Byram, Tom Krywitsky, Evan Letkeman, Hunter Balch)
3. Calgary, 3:29.27 (Sterling King, Wyatt Yarish, Bogdan Knezevic, Ali Mahmoud Arafa)
