Danielle Kisser set a pair of national records in Montreal last week.

The Delta Sungod Swim Club member swam in three races at the IPC (International Paralympic Committee) World Championships, placing in the top 10 in all three events while setting new Canadian records for her class of disability in the 200m individual medley and the 100m breast stroke.

Kisser placed fifth in the breast stroke race, was seventh in the medley and also placed ninth in the 400m freestyle.

“It was eye-opening for me,” said the 16 year-old of her results. “I knew that I wanted to be here, and swim at this level. But now I really know what I need to do to be competitive.”
