Canada Games Medals

We would have had 7 but for the rule preventing more than 3 from a province competing in finals.  Both Alyssa and Rylan had to put some 9s and 9.5s in the water to clinch their medals – they fought to the very last dive and came out on the podium.  They also broke big records.  Rylan broke his own record set at Sr. Nationals – that record had previously belonged to Cole Miller since 2011.  Alyssa broke Joelle Gallais’ record which was set at Toon Town in May – that record was previously set by Lindsay Hamilton in 2006.  Amazing to see so many big records falling this year.  Congratulations to all of our Canada Games athletes, coaches, judges and manager on a job well done.
