Bailey and Olivia Shine at the 2014 Ontario Short Course Age Group Championships

Bailey Andison and Olivia Ellard, travelled to London, Ontario to compete in the 2014 Ontario Short Course Age Group Championships. 742 of Ontario’s best 17 & under swimmers, representing 83 different swim clubs, met in London, Ontario for four days of competition. Top Stingray was Bailey Andison. Bailey won two events, claiming gold medals in both the 100 breaststroke and 400 individual medley. She also won the silver medal in the 200 breaststroke. All 3 of Bailey’s times established new Perth Stingray club records. Olivia Ellard won bronze medals in both 100 backstroke and 200 freestyle and placed 4th in 100 freestyle and 200 backstroke. Olivia’s bronze medal swims also broke the existing Stingrays club records. 

Together, the two swimmers won the “Best Performing Team” award at the championships by winning the most medals per swimmer of all the clubs participating at the meet.

Next up for these two Stingrays is the 2014 Canadian Swimming Trials in Victoria, British Columbia, April 2 – 5, 2014. Swimming Canada will select swimmers to represent Canada at the 2014 Pan-Pacific Championships, the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the 2014 Youth Olympic Games and the 2014 Junior Pan-Pacific Championships. They will be vying for a spot on one of the teams being selected.

Well Done Olivia and Bailey...we are all so proud of you and so happy to see that all your hard work is paying off!!
