In October 2018, Crest swimmers Kevin Park and Benjamin Loewen were named to Swimming Canada’s “2018 Summer ID Team”. The ID Team selection is an initiative of the National Development Teams Program that endeavours to provide Canada’s identified swimmers and their coaches, with the development opportunities to establish the will, attitude and skills required to race to the podium at the Senior International level.
Each season Swimming Canada names four single aged National Development Teams Program “ID” teams for each gender. Age is determined by year of birth, with 66 male and 54 female swimmers identified for the Summer Team.
Kevin Park is 15 years old and has been on the Crest team for six years. Kevin was recognized for several finishing times including 100 Fly, 100 and 200 Breast, 200 IM and 400 IM.
Benjamin Loewen is 14 years old and has been swimming with Crest since 2010. Benjamin was recognized for finishing times including 100 and 200 Fly, 200 and 400 IM and 200 Breast.
Swimmers are named to the Swimming Canada “Summer ID Team” as a result of swimming one of the posted ID Team Times in the 2018 Summer Peak Performance Window (July 1–August 31) and means the swimmer has been identified as an athlete with the potential for high performance. Kevin and Benjamin were also named to the “Spring ID Team” in 2018.
Canada Day weekend was a big weekend for Crest as our team took home Swim Ontario’s Small Team Award at the 2018 Summer Provincials at the Etobicoke Olympium. The Provincial Championship Meet is for swimmers who have achieved provincial-level time standards and is one of the most competitive meets held each year as swimmers attempt to qualify for national standing. This is the fourth time in a row that Crest has won the Ontario Small Team Award at Provincials which is bestowed upon the small team with the most points. Crest also won the award at the Spring 2018 Provincials and the Spring and Summer 2017 Provincials.
Crest also won the Small Team Award at the 2017 Swim Ontario Winter and Summer Festivals, which are provincial-level meets targeted at younger swimmers, and at the Spring AA Championships held in March 2018.
There were 8 swimmers representing Crest at the Provincial Championships:
1) Taylor Bird
2) Cezar Hirsescu
3) Benjamin Loewen
4) Liam McMullen
5) Kevin Park
6) Lucas Park
7) Alexander Schwab
8) Madeline Shivgulam
Next up for Crest will be the Canadian Junior Championships being held July 25-30 in Winnipeg where Ben Loewen and Kevin Park will represent.
