SNC: Olympic Trials Confirmed

Swimming Canada announced on May 20 that the Olympic Trials are confirmed to take place in Toronto from June 19-23, 2021.

The trials plan consists of:

  • Preliminary heats and finals for distances 200 metres and shorter.
  • Timed finals for distances 400 metres and longer.

Also note that the pre-games camp that was planned in Japan has been moved to Vancouver.

We all wish all the best to our swimmers Brooklyn Douthwright and Jacob Gallant at these trials and remind you that we already have a New Brunswicker who will represent Canada at the Games: Danielle Dorris!
