Joshua Kimâ€™s amazing swim season continues.
The 11-year-old member of the Langley Olympians Swim Club won all 10 of his events at the three-day New Yearâ€™s Invitational meet, hosted by the Canadian Dolphins Swim Club in Vancouver.
This was the final qualifying meet for this yearâ€™s B.C. Short Course (25-metre pool) AAA Championships in Kamloops and attracted 300 of the top age group swimmers from across the Lower Mainland.
Also shining for LOSC was 14-year-old-old Chelsea Borrowdale, who swam to top spot in five events.
Overall, LOSC swimmers raced extremely well and came away with top-three placings, qualifying times, meet records, and new best times.
