Stamp makes mark in breaststroke at Canada Games

Thursday, August 8, 2013

SHERBROOKE, Que. - One of the toughest meet records to break at this week’s Canada Games swimming competition have been in the women’s breaststroke events and Erin Stamp of Guelph, Ont., achieved that feat Wednesday in the women’s 100-metre race.

Stamp clocked one minute and 11.40 seconds to eclipse the previous Games mark of 1:11.65 set by two-time Olympian Jillian Tyler of Calgary. Marie-Laurence Godin of St-Eustache, Que., who upset Stamp in the 50-metre breaststroke Monday, was second in 1:11.52 and Genevieve Robertson of Guelph was third in 1:12.39.

”It was a close race and an exciting one to be involved in,” said Stamp with two individual gold medals and a silver so far at the Games. ”I could see Marie-Laurence on the turn and that’s about it. I knew by the crowd we were neck and neck at the finish.”

Other winners in women’s competition were 14-year-old Meryn McCann of Burlington, Ont., in the 200-m backstroke and Lili Margitai of Edmonton in the 100-m butterfly - both in Games record time- as well as Kennedy Goss of Toronto in the 200-m freestyle,

In men’s competition, Jonathan Brown of Calgary took the gold in the men’s 200-m freestyle in a personal best 1:51.52. Teddy Kalp of North York, Ont., vying for a third gold was second in 1:52.44 and Stefan Milosevic of New Westminster, B.C., was third at 1:52.49. Milosevic clocked a Canada Games record 1:51.48 in the prelims which survived the final.

”I definitely wanted to get more gold for Alberta today,” said Brown, 18, who is tuning up for the world junior championships later this month in Dubai. ”I’m really proud to win this one for my team. I feel like I executed my plan very well and that shoed in the race.”

Other winners in men’s competition were Evan White of Oakville, Ont., in the 100-m butterfly for his third gold and Joe Byram of Edmonton in the 200-m backstroke, both with meet records, and Antoine Bujold of Trois-Rivieres, Que., in the 100-m breaststroke.

In the 4X50-m medley relays, Alberta won the men’s race and Ontario was tops for the women.

In Para-swimming, races winners were Kennedy Pasay of Alberta and Dalton Boon of B.C., in the 100-m freestyle.

In the Special Olympics events, winners were April Lam of Alberta and Magnus Batara of B.C., in the 50-m backstroke

The pool portion of the swimming competition ends Thursday. The five kilometer open water race is on Friday.
