Young swimmers clock personal bests at Vancouver meet

More than two dozen Pacific Sea Wolves swimmers took part in provincial swim championships last month, breaking records and clocking personal-best times in the process.

At the BC Winter Age Group Championships, which were held Feb. 21-23 at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre, 25 swimmer dipped their toes in the water – eight for the first time at provincials.

Among the standout performances was Cyan Ni, who achieved his first-ever B.C. championship time in the under-15 boys 200-m butterfly; Matthew Cao, who broke a PSW club record in the 200-m breaststroke; and Oliver Allen, who knocked an astounding 25 seconds off his personal-best time in the 400-m individual medley, according to the club.

As well, Hailey Ferrell finished fourth in the 50-m freestyle and Selina Jiang just narrowly missed a B.C. championship time in the U14 girls 200-m breaststroke.

Other personal best swims were recorded by Ryan Lu, Vanessa Rodriquez, Daniel Wang, Matthew Wu and Ryan Zhang.
