“On behalf of all the athletes, coaches and staff at Swimming Canada, our hearts and prayers go out to the families affected by the earthquake in Mexico City. Natural disasters are obviously extenuating circumstances beyond our control and the focus must be on those affected by the the earthquake and their recovery. While the World Para-Swimming Championships have been postponed indefinitely, Swimming Canada has decided to withdraw its entry this year. The safety of our athletes and coaches are always our number one priority. The team is currently in Sante Fe, New Mexico. We will complete our high altitude training camp there this week before returning to Canada. We will be thinking of all of the families in Mexico City affected by the earthquake during this recovery period.”
