Canada Artistic Swimming (CAS) is very proud to announce the athletes selected to represent Canada at the next World Aquatics Youth Artistic Swimming Championships in Athens, Greece, on August 30 – September 3.

Delegations from across the country came together last weekend in Markham for the SYNC Artistic Swimming Championship, hosted by Ontario Artistic Swimming, in the hope of qualifying as the country’s representative in Athens. In the end, after tight races displaying the depth of talent in the Youth age group in Canada, 13 athletes from Quebec and Ontario were selected to participate in the 3rd edition of the Youth World Championships.

“We’d like to thank Ontario Artistic Swimming for hosting this event,” said CAS Chief Sport Officer Kerri Morgan. “We’re very proud of our Canadian representatives at Youth Worlds and we wish them the very best as they wear the maple leaf in Athens.”

In the team event, Team Quebec trailed Team Ontario by an incredibly slim 0.0113 points after the preliminary round, but was able to raise its score in the finals to finish first and punch their ticket to Athens. Team Ontario earned silver while Remix Artistic Swimming finished third.

By virtue of their 2nd position, Team Ontario qualified to take part in the Pan Am Aquatics Artistic Swimming Championships that will take place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on August 10-13. They will be joined in Fort Lauderdale for the event by Team Alberta, who finished fourth at SYNC.

Also at stake at SYNC Championships were spots in the duet, mixed duet, boys solo and girls solo events at the World Youth Championships.

In duet, Quebec’s Lily Bernier and Andréa Escobar won gold to qualify as the Canadian pair at youth Worlds. Sophie He-Sun and Madison Murphy from Team Ontario won silver, followed by Isabelle Koptie and Isobel Padgett from Remix Artistic Swimming.

In girls solo, Kaylynne Greensmith from Team Ontario won gold to capture the Youth World spot. Team Quebec’s Lily Bernier was second, while Vienna Lange from Team Alberta was third.

Greensmith will join forces with duet partner Christopher Niehaus as the Canadian representatives in the Mixed Duet event. Niehaus will also take part in the boys solo event.
