A perfect 10 for Kim
The Langley Olympians Swim Club placed first overall in the girls category and second as a team.
The club was competing at a three-day event in Vancouver hosted by the Canadian Dolphins Swim Club earlier this month.
The meet featured 300 of the top age group swimmers from around the Lower Mainland and it was also the last chance to qualify for this year’s B.. short course (25) AAA championships in Kamloops.
Leading the way was 11-year-old Joshua Kim, who won all 10 of his events, broke a meet record in both the 400 IM (5:30.11) and the 50 free (29.15). Kim also received a prize for the highest total points scored in his age group.
Also winning their respective age group titles were Chelsea Borrowdale and Hillary Metcalfe.
Borrowdale, 14, won five gold, a silver and two bronze medals, while the 15-year-old Metcalfe won seven gold and two silver medals.
