Some swimmers hope to set new club records

All ages all skill levels were competing at the Langley and Abbotsford Olympians intra club meet on Saturday.

It was a chance for swimmers at all levels to to compete, assistant coach Martha Metcalfe said.

“It’s an opportunity for them to show their friends, family and their other teammates the training that they’ve been doing so far,” Metcalfe said.

”It’s particularly important for the really young ones because they don’t get a lot of opportunities to race with the older kids.”

A number of swimmers were also aiming to set new club records at the meet.

Metcalfe began her career as a competitive swimmer with the Olympians for 13 years before joining the Simon Fraser University (SFU) varsity swim team.

She swam with SFU for two years before retiring to focus on school and coaching.
