Team Canada Trials
Michelle Williams picked the perfect time and place to set a new personal best in the women’s 100 metre freestyle.
A finish of 54.21 put the Toronto native at the top of the podium on Wednesday while also breaking a Team Canada Trials record previously held by Arianna F. Vanderpool-Wallace.
The win qualified Williams for the upcoming Pan Am Games and World Championships. Her familiarity with the venue didn’t hurt.

The Brantford, Ont., native has been a fixture at the Canadian trials since he was just a teenager swimming for the W Ross Macdonald team.
