Cale Murdock, who grew up swimming in Fort St. John, will be swimming for a spot on the Canadian Olympic team this April at the Canadian Olympic Trials in Toronto. Murdock will swim against 19 other athletes in the 200m and 400m freestyle disciplines at the trials, which take place April 7 to 11, 2021.
Murdock's achievement is even more impressive considering Swimming Canada has its entries to 20 per distance, in order to comply with social distancing protocols.
The Tokyo Olympics are scheduled to start this summer July 23.
More to come.
