Taylor Ruck scores Canadian medal record with Pan Pacific silver


Taylor Ruck is now the most-decorated Canadian swimmer at a single Pan Pacific Swimming Championships after racing to a silver within the 200-metre backstroke in Tokyo on Sunday​.

The medal was her fifth of the occasion, serving to Ruck break a tie she held with six different Canadians for essentially the most medals at a single Pan Pacs with 4.

Ruck completed the 200 backstroke ultimate in two minutes, 6.41 seconds whereas American Kathleen Baker gained gold (2:06.14) and her teammate Regan Smith scored bronze (2:06.46).

Medal data are nothing new for Ruck, who tied the all-time Commonwealth Video games record of eight earlier this 12 months.

Canada’s Yuri Kisil additionally landed on the rostrum, taking a bronze within the males’s 50m freestyle in a time of 22.02 seconds.

Canada has eight medals total on the championships, one higher than the workforce’s complete from 2014.
