Three days of swimming and three days of personal bests -Isaac swam the 100fly this morning in a personal best time of 1:03.42 and placing 16th.

Yesterday, he swam a 26.06 personal best in the 50m freestyle! And on day one Isaac swam a personal best 2:18.33  in the 200IM which advanced him to the finals. Unfortunately, he was disqualified for an illegal kick in the butterfly leg – but an amazing swim nonetheless! Anyone else see his swim on TSN 2 Thursday night?

What’s next … Isaac swims 100m back on Tuesday, the 400 free (his best event) on Wednesday. Go Isaac!
