Top Cup Long Course
May 12-13, 2018
For the eight young Warriors who competed in the Long Course events at the prestigious Top Cup Meet, qualifying for the races was a major accomplishment unto itself, with the qualifying standards for each 10-yr-old event almost matching those of the Ontario Festivals standards. But their success didn't stop there.
These young athletes not only made the cut but also delivered incredible performances and showed amazing competitive spirit and endurance as they competed in the Long Course events in the evening after racing in the Short Course sessions earlier in the day!
Our small team of mostly 10-year-olds have a lot to be proud of. They came home with 5 Gold, 3 Silver and 1 Bronze medals and set 4 new club records! All eight CW athletes also had one or more Top 8 finishes. Way to go, Warriors!
