Olympians’ Ledoux nabs three medals

Langley swim club sends nine to compete at age group national championships in Winnipeg

Members of the Langley Olympians Swim Club were competing at the age group nationals in Winnipeg.

Renae Ledoux swam her way to three medals — including a pair of gold medals — against the top swimmers from across the country.

Ledoux was one of nine members of the Langley Olympians Swim Club who swam at the age group nationals in Winnipeg last month.

They were up against more than 800 of the top swimmers from around the country, as well as an age group team from Ireland.

The 14-year-old finished atop the podium in both the 50 and 100 breast events — also setting a new club record of 33.03 in the 50 — and a silver in the 100 breast.

Justin Schramm, 16, Hillary Metcalfe, 16, and Chelsea Borrowdale, 15, all made the finals in their respective events.

Schramm was fourth in the 200 fly, fifth in the 800 free and sixth in the 400 free.

Metcalfe was sixth in the 200 IM and Borrowdale was sixth in the 100 breast and seventh in the 50 breast.

Josie Field, 12, Bailey Herbert, 11, and Robyn Nakano achieved personal bests in one event apiece.
