Canadian team for T&T training camp

BUTTERFLY STROKE: Canada’s Katerine Savard competes at the 2016 FINAL (Short Course) World Swimming Championships in Windsor, Canada, earlier this month.


Canadian team, Club Aquatique Montreal (CAMO), has chosen Trinidad and Tobago as its winter training base. A team of 13—inclusive of two coaches—is  scheduled to take part in  a “packed training  program ” in Central Trinidad.

The Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SporTT) is partnering with the Tourism Development Company (TDC) to facilitate the training camp which runs from December 29 through January 10 at the National Aquatic Centre in  Couva.

Magik Tours representative Eli Daniels praised the training facility available in Trinidad.

” The coaches we work with ask us to scout various destinations and we heard about Trinidad. The facility is well laid out and very athlete-oriented. So it’s ideal for training and for competition,”  Daniels said.

One of the stars on the CAMO roster is Olympic, World Championship, Commonwealth and Pan Am medalist Katerine Savard, who most recently won gold with Canada’s 4x200m freestyle team at the 2016 World Swimming Championships (Short Course) in Windsor, Canada.
Savard also won bronze in the 4x200m freestyle relay in her second Olympic Games in Rio last summer.
