Abbotsford swimmers fare well in Langley event on Oct. 17

The first meet of the season proved to be a breakout performance for Abbotsford’s Miyuki Gusdal.

On Oct. 17 in Langley, the 10-year-old member of the Abbotsford Special Olympian Swim Club qualified for the regionals, after completing the 200 metres individual medley in 3:49.09. By posting that time, Miyuki qualifies for meets in the Lower Mainland in the coming months.

ASOSC and the Langley Olympians Swim Club competed at the event, which saw a total of 11 ASOSC members compete.

ASOSC Rachel Anderson, Daisy Kropp, and Paige Wiens also achieved personal bests at the event.

Head coach Shane Downey noted that several swimmers had personal bests, and praised the showings of Rachel Anderson, Daisy Kropp, and Paige Wiens.
