Canadians ready for Speedo Eastern and Western Championships

News –

Over 450 athletes are getting ready for the 2024 Speedo Eastern and Western Canadian Championships Thursday through Sunday.

Competitions on both sides of the country will run simultaneously with PEPS Université de Laval in Quebec City as host for Eastern Championships, and the Pan Am Pool in Winnipeg welcoming swimmers for the Western Championships.

“As Swimming Canada prepares to bid farewell to a cherished tradition, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the provincial sections, clubs, local organizing committees, officials and volunteers who have tirelessly supported the Speedo Eastern and Speedo Western Championships throughout the years,” said Jocelyn Jay, Acting Associate Director, Sport Development.

“This final instalment in Winnipeg and Quebec City would not be possible without the exceptional efforts of Swim Manitoba and Club de natation Région de Quebec (CNQ), who have graciously stepped up to host this year’s events. Their commitment, expertise, and volunteer spirit exemplify an exceptional collaboration, making this weekend’s competitions truly the ‘last one, fast one!’”

The four days of racing will be streamed live on the Rec Tec website.

The University of Calgary Swim Club (UCSC) will look to defend their Western title, while the Eastern banner is up for grabs with Etobicoke Swim Club not in action at this year’s meet.

At the 2023 Speedo Eastern Championships held in Windsor, Ont., Eswim’s 27-member team won by 181 points over Montreal’s Pointe-Claire Swim Club. On the Western side, UCSC couldn’t be touched winning the meet with 3,176.50 for Edmonton Keyano Swim Club to follow in second with 919.50 points last year at MNP Community and Sports Centre in Calgary.

These championships will be the final stop ahead of the 2024 Speedo Canadian Open in Toronto, April 10 to 13 and the 2024 Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Trials presented by Bell May 13 to 19.
