Eden Kormendy from the Trail Winter Swim Club (TWSC) has swam her way into the top echelons of provincial athletes.

Kormendy was selected by Swim BC to attend the Prospects Provincial Team Fall Training Camp on the weekend in Richmond.

The 13-year-old Fruitvale native achieved selection to the camp by virtue of her long course 200-metre Individual Medley swim where she had the top FINA (International Swimming Federation) point score in her age group. Her 50-m. long course and 100-m long course breaststroke swims also scored high FINA points and her 200-m freestyle was in the top FINA point scores for her age group.

“Eden is a well rounded IM swimmer that deserves to have the opportunity to be selected as she is one of the top age group swimmers in this province,” said TWSC coach Bill Park. “It is great that Swim BC, is recognizing this athlete for her accomplishments participating in Swim Canada sanctioned long course competitive swimming events. I know that the Trail Winter Swim Club and our aquatic community are very proud to have an athlete from this area attending the prestigious training selection camp in Richmond.”

Eden is one of eight 13-year-old swimmers out of 32 male and female swimmers chosen for the elite camp.
