In Etobicoke at the Etobicoke Age Group International competition, Canada’s 4X100m women’s relay team broke the national short course record. Sandrine Mainville of Montreal, Chantal Van Landeghem of Winnipeg and Michelle Williams and Penny Oleksiak, both of Toronto, and all representing Swimming Canada’s High Performance Centre-Ontario, clocked 3:31.34.
