It has been a busy month so far for members of the Langley Olympians Swimming Club.

The club hosted their annual long course meet over the weekend at the Walnut Grove Aquatic Centre, welcoming hundreds of swimmers from across the Lower Mainland.

And other members of the Olympians have been busy attending some high-profile camps and have qualified to move on to major meets this summer.

Renae Ledoux, 14, and Hillary Metcalfe, 15, have been selected to attend the East West youth dual meet in Winnipeg in July.

The pair will be part of a team of the top swimmers from Western Canada who will go up against their Eastern counterparts.

Ledoux will compete in the breaststroke while Metcalfe will swim in the individual medley.

Metcalfe, along with her sister Martha Metcalfe, 17, and Justin Schramm, 16, also took part in the Canadian swimming trials in Victoria from April 2 to 5.

The meet featured 500 of the top swimmers from across the country .
