On to the day's Keyano recap:
Women's 400 IM
Olivia Brendzan qualified for the Senior B Final with a strong preliminaries and finished 12th overall in a time of 4:57.56. Eleaunah Phillips qualified for the Junior Final and won it! Her time of 4:53.86 was a big new best time and got for the 5th-placed Junior overall. 
Women's 200 Back
El Phillips was right back up after her big 400 IM after equaling her best time in the preliminaries to qualify for the B Final. We'll share her impressive prelims time here of 2:19.74... in the Finals the 200 Back happens to fall with only 6 minutes between the 400 IM Junior Final and the 200 Backstroke B Final, so we have to give a big thumbs up to Eleaunah for swimming back-to-back races and finishing in 20th place for the 200 Backstroke!

Reid Maxwell struck a new medal colour in the 100 freestyle earning a  Silver medal  in a time of 1:00.23. His time is once again a new Canadian Record for his S8 para-swimming category.
