Nationals has wrapped up for another year. There was lots of exciting racing yesterday, and most athletes will be heading home today or tomorrow. I post some pics once I get my camera battery recharged.

Quick recap of Top 5 Canadians

1. Paula Findlay 
2. Kerry Spearing
3. Tenille Hoogland
4. Sarah-Anne Brault
5. Rachel McBride

1. Brent McMahon
2. Andre-Paul Baillargeon Smith
3. Jordan Brydan
4. James Loaring
5. Jamie Stephenson

Congrats to our two new National Champions, and to athletes and coaches. Full women's results here. Full men's results here.


James Loaring had a strong race (4th Canadian, 9th overall), made more impressive by the fact he had his nose broken in the first few seconds of the swim. Way to be tough James!

Adrian Delmonte claimed gold in the Mens 25-29 category

Tom Lokody finished with a bronze medal in the 30-34 category.

Congrats boys.


A tough day for the Canadian women as everyone knows by now. Congrats to Carolyn, Kathy and Lauren on their efforts!

The men line up on the pontoon later today. Go Simon, Paul and Colin!

In the time it's taken me to write this, Canada has won two more silver medals (trampoline and show jumping) - not a bad start to the day. Check out this video for a great piece on SQW. Go Canada!
