Hallquist picks up five medals to lead Olympians
Karl Hallquist picked up medals of each colour to lead an impressive showing for the Langley Olympians at the Swim BC short course (25m pool) AA championships.
The meet was hosted by the Chilliwack Spartans Swim Club earlier this month at the Chilliwack Leisure Landing Centre and featured close to 400 swimmers.
Hallquist, 17, won gold in the 14 and over freestyle event and silver in the 200 IM, the 100 fly and the 200 free. He also picked up bronze in the 400 free.
He was one of 12 members of the club competing at the meet and one of four to find the podium.
Ryan Hunter, 10, won silver in the 11 and under 200 back event while Danielle de la Gorgendiere, 14, was second in the 14 and over 200 back.
And Regan Bedard, 11, won silver in the 11 and under 100 breaststroke.
Bedard and Hunter also achieved their AAA qualifying times for the championships this summer.
