Danielle Kisser of the Delta Sungod Swim Club won three medals, and set a Canadian record along the way, at the AAA B.C. Provincial Championships last weekend in Richmond.

Kisser set the record in the women’s S6 100m back stroke, completing the race in 1:47.45.

Kisser won a bronze medal in the race, and also won silver medals in the 50m freestyle and 100m breast stroke.

Kevin McDonough was also in the medals, winning silver in his men’s 200m individual race.

Kisser, McDonough, Elena Penner, Alan Lu and Aidan McDonough all qualified for finals on the weekend.

“Every swimmer that went through to finals improved on their preliminary time and placing, a huge feat on the provincial stage,” said Sungod head coach Steve Hitchings. “The swimmers did a great job racing hard, racing smart and swimming to potential.

“AAA Provincials is always a stressful meet and the team did very well handling the pressure and racing fast. I am so proud of them.”

Team Sungod will be at the National Age Group Championships July 25-30 in Calgary.
