Junior Pan Pacs in Hawaii

Junior Pan Pacs kick off today in Hawaii (although there is no mention of it on the Swim Canada or Swim Ontario sites as of this morning). 

Canada's roster can be found here.
Psych Sheets can be found here.
Live results from the meet can be found here.
A good games preview can be found with my good friends over at here.

There is bound to be some great competition at this meet with tough swimmers like Becca Mann of USA Swimming, who will be doing a very tough schedule:

  • For the women, Becca Mann is going to attempt an unreal, Mireia-Belmonte-esque schedule. The 14-year old National Age Group Record holder made three finals at the Olympic Trials, and now will attempt the 5 most physically-challenging events on the Olympic schedule: the 200 fly, the 400 free, the 400 IM, and the 800 free in the pool. Just  for good measure, after those four races in four days, she’ll jump into the open water, 10km swim on Monday.
Ya its going to be tough, but she works hard and enjoys making you all look bad when you refuse to swim 200fly and 200IM in the same session. Mann up, everyone!
