Three Kamloops Classic Swimming athletes were in action at the U Sports Swimming Championships, which wrapped up last Saturday in Toronto.

Megan Dalke, swimming for the UBC Thunderbirds, placed third in the 400-metre individual medley, finishing behind a pair of Canadian Olympians. Dalke’s time of 4:38.40 was a personal-best by three seconds.

She was fourth in the 400m free and sixth in the 200m fly.

Dalke was also the anchor on UBC’s gold-medal winning 4x200m freestyle relay team and she won a silver medal in the 800m freestyle.

She was named a U Sports first-team all-star. The T-Birds won the overall women’s title.

Eloise Ladyman, swimming for the University of Waterloo, placed fourth in the B final of the 100m back.

Ethan Jensen of the Victoria Vikes placed second in the C final of the men’s 100m fly with a personal-best time of 55.40 seconds.
