Swim Ontario 2008 Youth Tour Team

114

Despite a snowstorm and a tightened timeline between prelims and finals, the Bergen Tour Team had a successful Sunday in Oregon. The swimmers stepped up to the challenge of back-to- back sessions of prelims, distance, relays and then finals without a second thought.

Those in the 800 and 1500 did a phenomenal job with Brandon Kingston winning gold in 15:23.17, Lindsay Seeman racing to bronze in the 800 in 8:41.37, Jacqueline Kiere 6th in 8:55.86 and Tatyanna Sarjeant 7th in 8:56.04.

Seeman and Kingston were back on the blocks soon after for the relays with the female 400 Medley Relay team of Seeman, Veronica Lee, Tasha Truscott, Lauren Earp coming 4th in 4.14.32 and the male 400 Medley Relay team of Grant Harding, Trevor Nicholas, Chris Manning, and Kingston placing 5th in 3.52.85.

More medals were won in the individual final events with Truscott winning silver in the 100 fly (1:00.58), and Nicholas racing to bronze in the 100 breast (1:04.66).
