Sungod member achieves provincial qualifying time

The Delta Sungod Swim Club had another successful weekend in the pool earlier this month in Richmond.

More than 400 swimmers attended the West Coast Open competing at Watermania, and the Sungod club had one swimmers qualify for the BC AAA Championships and nine achieve personal-best times.

“We have been focused on our longer events this weekend and the kids were much more consistent with their effort over the long races,” said Julian Getzov, an assistant head coach with the Sungod Club.

Noah Landry, 13, met the provincial standard while placing fifth in his 200m butterfly race, and will compete in that event at the BC AAA Championships at UBC Aquatic Centre the second weekend in July.

Sungod swimmers in the finals at the West Coast Open were:

Michael Milic, 14 – gold 50m back stroke; bronze 100m back stroke, 200m breast stroke, 200m back stroke and 100m breast stroke.
