Schramm, Metcalfe find podium for Olympians

Justin Schramm and Hillary Metcalfe both found the podium as the western Canadian swimming championships in New Westminster.

Schramm won gold in the 16 and under 400 free event while Metcalfe won silver in the 15 and under 200 breast and bronze in the 50 breast.

The pair were among a dozen members of the Langley Olympians Swim Club who were competing among the 540 top age group swimmers from western Canada.

And some of the club’s younger swimmers were in action at the Lower Mainland Regional championships hosted by the Richmond Rapids Swim Club.

Leading the medal charge for Langley was Ryan Hunter, 10, who won gold in the 200 back and 400 free, silver in the 200 free and bronze in the 100 free.

Reagen Bedard, 11, won a pair of gold medals in the 400 free and 200 free.

Other medals included:

Reese Blunden, 11, silver in the 200 back and bronze in the 400 free.

Dylan Thomas, 10, bronze in the 200 individual medley.

All four of the swimmers also achieved the necessary qualifying times to compete at the B.C. AA provincial championships in Chilliwack.
