With only having seven swimmers participating at the Swim Ontario Age Group Championships, hosted by the London Aquatic Club recently, Sudbury Laurentian Swim Club managed to bring home five medals in total — two Gold, two silver and one bronze.

Nina Kucheran led the way, winning gold in the 100- and 200-metre breaststroke, taking silver in the 800-metre freestyle and bronze in the 400-metre freestyle.

She also made the finals in the 200-metre freestyle, and for the 200- and 400-metre individual medley. The most impressive part was that Kucheran posted personal bests by significant amounts in every event she swam, said a news release from the Laurentian Swim Club.

Chris Eastick swam to a silver medal in the 200-metre freestyle and was seventh and eighth in 800- and 400-metre freestyle, as well. Chris also had personal best times in all of those races.

Alex Langlois swam to the finals of the 100- and 200-metre backstroke with strong efforts in both events. Alex Sarvas had a great meet with personal best times in the 100-metre breaststroke and 200-metre individual medley.

Erik Wainman made finals in the 100- and 200-metre breaststoke.

Emmy Kucheran and Morgan Kivinen swam great and were vital parts of the girls relays.

Over all, SLSC finished in 21st position in the team standings.

“Not bad for only having seven swimmers at the meet,” said the swim club in a news release. “Between this meet and our great showing at the Winter Festivals in Brantford earlier in February, we had a fantastic finish to our Winter Championship season.”
