  • Print

The Bisons Swim Club's Kelsey Wog broke a 33-year-old provincial girls' 11-12 category record in the 200-metre individual medley preliminaries Thursday in a time of two minutes 31.03 seconds at the ManSask Long Course Open Swimming Championships, which were held over the weekend at the Pan Am Pool.

Then, in Saturday's final, Wog broke it again when she won in 2:30.40.

Dawn Gilhooly (St. James Seals) set the previous record of 2:31.63 in 1978.

Wog also won the 200 breaststroke (2:56.61), 4x50 freestyle relay (2:03.24), 100 freestyle (1:02.53), 200 backstroke (2:34.73) and the 4x50 IM relay (2:17.14).

Swimming with Wog in the freestyle relay were Sydney Glover, Allison McCormick and Kala Roy. Her teammates in the individual medley relay were Mariah Hanslilp, Roy and McCormick.
