Nationals – Calgary 2018

A few weeks ago TMU member Damra Camat attended the Canadian Masters Swimming Championships in Calgary (May 19 – 21, 2018) as the sole representative of our club.

The meet was very well organized and there were swimmers from all over Canada, a bunch even from the United States!

Damra competed in the 800m freestyle and won the silver medal in her age group. She finished 4th place in all of the rest of her events:

  • 400m freestyle
  • 100m breaststroke
  • 50m breaststroke

Damra started swimming a year ago in May 2017 and joined TMU in the fall. The meet was a huge success for her, in only her first year with TMU.

Here are a few pictures:
