Annieville and Brooke Elementary Students Win Gold at Synchronized Swimming Provincial Championships

February 19, 2014

The BC Aquasonics had a powerhouse performance at this weekend’s National Stream BC Provincial Synchronized Swimming Championships in Surrey, taking home gold in 5 of 6 events. Annieville Elementary School student Abby Rothwell and Brook Elementary School student Grace Macdonald won gold in the 13-15 Team Routine.

This provincial meet was the team’s final opportunity to compete in British Columbia before heading to compete with Canada’s top athletes at the National Qualifier in Montreal, March 11-16, 2014.

“This competition had the largest number of National Stream synchronized swimmers that BC has seen in a long time,” says Head Coach Susan Kemper. “Our competition is tougher but our BC Aquasonics’ coaches and athletes proved once again that they are still the best in the province. We have a legacy to carry and we do that by excelling in conditioning, mental focus, routine skills, and unparalleled creativity. That’s what makes us stand out.”

BC Aquasonics is one of Canada’s oldest, largest, and most successful synchronized swimming clubs. The Aquasonics have produced all but one Team Canada athlete from the province of BC, all of the Olympic team synchronized swimmers from BC, and two Olympic Team coaches. Nearly all of our coaches are former BC Aquasonics athletes, now returning to share their passion for synchronized swimming with a new generation of athletes. Training in Coquitlam and Surrey, the Club currently has its largest number of national stream synchronized swimmers in over a decade.
