Canadian Kylie Masse motivated to sign world finals NanaimoNewsNOW

“I’m happy I did, but I didn’t expect to go out so fast,” Masse said. ” It wasn’t necessarily what I planned to do in this race.

” I’ll look at what I can improve. The finals will be played as usual. I’m looking forward to the challenge. ”

Masse won gold in the 100 meters emblem at the 2017 and 2019 World Championships.

Marie-Sophie Harvey of Montreal took eighth place in the individual 200 meters.

” I can’t be really upset because it was my first final in the world, ” the 22-year-old said.

“It was a step in the right direction, but not the time and location I was aiming for.”

Canada opened the two-year World Championship with a pair of silver medals on Saturday.

Toronto teenager Summer McIntosh was second behind American veteran Katie Ledecky in the 400 meters freestyle.

The Canadian 4 x 100 freestyle relay also took silver, anchored by Penny Oleksiak from Toronto.

The World Championships will take place on July 3 with open water races after a competition in the pool.

Canada won a total of eight pool medals (two gold, six bronze) plus open water bronze at the last World Championships in 2019 in Gwangju, South Korea.
