U SPORTS – SHERBROOKE, Que. (U SPORTS) – After three days of competition at the Sherbrooke University Sports Centre, the UBC Thunderbirds won top honours in almost all women’s and men’s events, winning both competitions in front of the University of Toronto, University of  Montreal and University of Calgary.

OFFICIAL WEBSITE (including full results):

The third and last evening of finals was the most exciting, with eight records set in 12 events. The 100m freestyle rendered the same results as the 50m freestyle, with the Mainville siblings of the Montreal Carabins winning double awards, and a new record for Sandrine set with a time of 52.62. Yuri Kisil of UBC torpedoed through the pool towards his fifth gold medal, with a new record of 46.94.

The 200m backstroke was another exciting event, with a third record set in as many events for Kylie Masse of Toronto, who shattered the mark by nearly four seconds, with a time of 2:02.80. Markus Thormeyer of UBC, meanwhile, crushed the 1997 U SPORTS Championship record with a time of 1:54.48 for his sixth medal.

The 400m freestyle champions – Danica Ludlow of the Calgary Dinos and Eric Hedlin of the University of Victoria – confirmed their long distance dominance by winning the 800m and 1500m respectively, with Hedlin smashing the record by 10 seconds in a time of 14:42.99.

The Thunderbirds continued to dominate the pool with two gold medals in the 200m medley and a new record of 2:08.09 for Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson, as well as the 50m breaststroke, while Warren Mayer exploded from seventh to first place, with a time of 27.32, only one tenth of a second off the record. Finally, the Thunderbirds confirmed their championship title with a breathtaking finish, winning the women’s and men’s 4x100m medley relay and establishing two new records – 3:58.66 for the women and 3:32.36 for the men.


An impressive total of 20 new records were broken over the weekend, of which 14 were in individual events, and six in relays. In addition, two Canadian records were established by UBC athletes.

Swimmers Kylie Masse of Toronto and Yuri Kisil of UBC were named the Women’s and Men’s Swimmers of the Year, with the highest number of points at the end of the Championships.
