Langley Olympian wins three medals in Winnipeg

Langley Olympians Swim Club member Renae Ledoux was a star at the Age Group Nationals in Winnipeg.

Ledoux was one of nine LOSC swimmers who qualified to attend this prestigious meet.

The Olympians were competing against over 800 of the fastest age group swimmers from all over Canada, along with an age group team from Ireland.

Ledoux, 14, led the way by winning two gold medals to go along with a silver.

Renae’s gold medals were in both the 50-metre and 200m breaststroke events, while she took the silver medal in the 100m breaststroke swim.

She achieved best times in all these events along with a new club record for 13-14 year girls in the 50m breaststroke, with a time of 33.03 seconds.

Sixteen-year-old Olympians Justin Schramm and Hillary Metcalfe, as well as Chelsea Borrowdale, 15, all made finals at the meet, just missing out on medals. Justin swam to fourth in the 200m fly, fifth in the 800m freestyle, and sixth in the 400m freestyle.

Hillary was sixth in the 200m IM, while Chelsea was sixth in the 100m breaststroke and seventh in the 50 breaststroke.

Other swimmers who achieved best times at the meet were Josie Field, 12, in the 50m backstroke, Bailey Herbert, 11, in the 50m breaststroke, and Robyn Nakano, 15, in the 50m backstroke.

“ It was good to see the kids continually winning medals and making finals at Canada’s top Age Group meet,” LOSC head coach Brian Metcalfe said.
