Moore and Washington impress in Canada

Local swimmers continued to impress and set personal bests at the Canadian Age Group Swimming Championships in Montreal, Canada over the weekend.

Swimming against a host of top quality competition in North America, Maddie Moore and Jesse Washington again put in encouraging performances in their respective events.

Both competed in the 50 metres freestyle on Friday evening, with Moore advancing out of the morning heats in third place for the evenings final.

Washington followed his compatriot in the pool, securing the number one position in his race and a place in the final.

In the final, Moore broke her own record by two tenths of a second, with the new mark being 27.68 seconds, while Washington also hit a new record of 25.50 seconds, good enough for fourth spot.

“The team continue to perform well as Madelyn Moore and Jesse Washington mixed it up with the best swimmers in Canada,” national coach Ben Smith said.

“In the evening's final events, Maddie swam a 27.68, breaking her own age group record to grab fifth place, while Jesse also set a new age group record, and missed a podium finish by 1/100th of a second.”

The pair, along with Emma Harvey remain in action as the championships continue.
