Katrina Bellio out-sprinted Regan Rathwell and Catherine Minic in the women’s 1.5 km race at the 2018 RBC Canadian Junior Championships at the St. Malo Provincial Park.

It was pretty good, pretty hard,” said Bellio who also won the 200m, 400m and 800m freestyle and 400m individual medley. “I wasn’t expecting so many girls to go out really fast, but I think that pushed me to have a really good finish at the end of the race. It was an awesome meet for me. I’m excited to see what comes next year.”

Eric Brown comfortably won the 1.5 km event. “It was good. It was a lot of fun,” said Brown. “My strategy was just to sprint the last lap.” Second place went to Calvin Slinn followed by Matthew Syrgiannis.

Alexander Katelnikoff of the Cascade Swim Club finished first in the 3 km race over Patrick Hussey and Louis Bertrand. "The race was pretty good, smooth water. I just tried to lead the race. It’s a little gutsy going out and leading the whole race but it’s fun to try something different.”

Island Swimming’s Chantel Jeffrey finished first in the women’s 3 km race over Acacia Benn and Kate Sullivan. “It was really good. I’m very happy with that. On the last lap and half I really went for it.”

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac



An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...
