Island Swimming is the host club as the Canadian Swimming Trials return to Saanich Commonwealth Place from April 2-5. The trials, which will serve as the selection meet for the Commonwealth Games, will see Ryan Cochrane race for places for the defence of his 400 and 1500m titles from 2010 in the same pool where Australian Kieren Perkins took down the 1500m freestyle world record in 14:41.66 back in 1994

Perkins also broke 800 WR on his way to the legendary 1,500 WR.

aswimfan. indeed he did… and got into much trouble from Mr Carew … ‘what day go and do that for mate?’ he asked his charge after the race… the plan had been to break all records 400 to 1500m at Rome world titles several weeks on but Kieren said he couldn’t help it: ‘i felt fine and just wanted to keep going’… 🙂
