Home Stretch

With only 2 meets and 3 weeks remaining in HHBF's season, things look pretty good. Kyle Haas, Matt Fox and Aaron Brautigam all look back to exceptional racing form, while Elizabeth Skuriat has finally gained the strength and endurance to put up some very solid distance races at AGN in Montreal.

First up with be the 2011 Summer (Senior) Nationals in Pointe Claire, Quebec where Kyle will race 50BK, 100BK, 200BK and 50FR over a 4 day period. The following week is the Canadian Age Group Championships in Montreal's Parc Jean Drapeau pool which is outdoors. This one will be attended by Kyle Haas, Matt Fox, Aaron Brautigam and Elizabeth Skuriat. Both Matt and Kyle have solid chances to win medals in this one so HHBF stands to have a fantastic meet. I hope whoever is running the HHBF club record board is paying attention, as they will have a lot of work to do in August when this is done.

It's worth noting that many friends of HHBF (Joe Bartoch, Andrew Ford, Brent Hayden, Ryan Cochrane, Randy Bennett, etc) will be at the FINA World Championships beginning July 20th. They will be broadcast on CBC. Broadcast schedule can be found HERE. We wish them the best of luck. This should be a good indication of what will happen at the 2012 Olympics next summer so tune in and show your support for MY sport and YOURS.
