Chatham Pool Sharks swimmer Genevieve Sasseville, will swim at the Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg, next week. The Canada Games started this week on July 28, with swimming events running from August 7-11.

Sasseville was one of 12 women selected from across the province to represent Ontario. Selection was based on fastest times at Long Course Championship Meets from January to April; it was her swims at the Speedo Eastern Canadian Championship meet that earned her a spot.

She recently won a pair of gold medals at the Canadian Junior Swimming Championships in Toronto, in the 13-14 age group range, in the 100m butterfly with a time of 1:01.67, and the 50m free in 26.85.

“I am very excited and honoured to have this opportunity,” said Genevieve Sasseville. “Being Canada’s 150th birthday makes it even more exciting for me to be a part of Canada Games. I just want to swim my best and make Chatham and Ontario proud.”

The Canada Games features 16 sports and over 250 events, and this year will mark the 50th anniversary of the Games.
