Three athletes from Chilliwack Spartan Swim Club narrowly missed stepping onto the podium at last weekend's Western Canadian Championships in Saskatoon.
Carson Olafson, Jessie Gibson and Colton Peterson competed at the meet, which featured 400 of western Canada's top qualified swimmers.
Gibson, swimming in the 15-and-under girls division, claimed two fourth-place finishes, in the 100-metre and 200-metre butterfly events. She also finished ninth in the 50-metre butter-fly and 10th in the 200-metre freestyle.
Olafson, competing in the men's 16-andunder category, finished fourth in the 100metre butterfly, seventh in the 800-metre freestyle, eighth in the 400-metre freestyle and ninth in the 200-metre backstroke.
Peterson, swimming in the same category, pushed himself to three fifth-place finishes: in the 100-and 200-metre breaststroke races and the 200-metre individual medley.
