Victoria Synchro's national stream athletes had a successful trip to Toronto for the Canadian Open Championships May 2-7, 2017. This national competition was for senior and junior level events. In addition it was also the fourth event in the FINA World Synchronized Swimming series this year and as such had international competitors in addition to competitors from Canadian Clubs. International and Domestic results were separate but they swam in the same events and it was really spectacular to see! Our team had the opportunity to watch and meet team Ukraine who competed in several events!
Our own athletes did very well! Victoria Synchro's Hannah Proud competed in Junior Solo with beautiful swims, finishing 8th in both prelims and finals. The Junior duet of Hannah Proud & Luiza Vasyleva demonstrated their skills swimming to an 8th place in prelims and 9th in finals. Our Senior duet of Mara Lambert-Wilson & Paige Wilson brought home a 6th place ribbon for their swim in the Senior duet event. And in the Free Combination event our Pirate & Mermaid themed Victoria Synchro combo swam to 8th place in prelims and then moved up to 7th in the finals!
Congratulations to all our hard working athletes and fantastic coaches!!
