Canadian Swimming Team Nominated For TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games

Sunday, April 5, 2015

On Saturday, the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) and Swimming Canada announced the swimming athletes nominated to represent Team Canada at the TORONTO 2015 Pan American Games from July 10 to 26. The athletes were named during an announcement that took place after the 2015 Team Canada Trials at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre.
Out of the 36 athletes, 24 will also represent Canada at the FINA World Championships in Kazan, Russia.

Leading the team will be two-time Olympian and two-time Olympic medallist, Ryan Cochrane who will be making his Pan Am Games debut and also holds six FINA World Championship medals.

Cochrane and the rest of the Canadian men will be joined by a strong women’s team that features international medallists Katerine Savard, Brittany MacLean, Hilary Caldwell, Martha McCabe and Chantal Van Landeghem.

The Canadian swimmers are looking to surpass their Guadalajara 2011 success where they won four medals in the swimming pool. Canada’s best-ever Pan Am performance in the pool came in 1999, where swimmers won 31 medals - including 13 gold - in Winnipeg.
