Jen Beckberger back with Pan Am Silver and Bronze!

After an incredible Pan American Games experience, our very own Jen Beckberger returned this week from Mexico and went straight back into the water to continue her trek to 2012 Olympic Trials.

Representing Canada and competing alongside 256 swimmers at the Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, Jen began her Pan Am journey leading Canada in the 400m freestyle relay. Jen got the team out front with the fastest first split and finished her lead leg in 2nd. The team fought hard beating Venezuela to the wall and grabbing a bronze medal(Canada’s first swimming medal at these Games).
