Swim records set by Kisser

Sungod swimmer competes at Can Am competition in California

Danielle Kisser has set two national swim records.

The 14 year-old member of the Delta Sungod Swim Club accomplished the feat while competing at the Para CanAm Championships in La Mirada California last weekend.

Kisser, who had personal best times in every event, set the new standards in the women’s S6 classification in the 400m freestyle and 200m individual medley events.

Her time of 3:51.98 was good for a bronze medal placing in the 200m individual medley race, while a time of 6:45.89 earned her a fourth place finish the 400m freestyle. She added another third place finish in the 100m back stroke, and was seventh in the 100m freestyle race.

The results have lifted her to 14th place in the world rankings.

The Para Can Am Championships is staged twice a year to provide national level competition to swimmers.

“These past Para CanAm Championships were of extra importance as Team Canada was earning spots for the Paralympic Games in London, 2012,” said Sungod head coach Steven Hitchings. “Danielle did her utmost to obtain the goal of earning spots for the Canadian team.”
