Winnipeg Free Press: Elite swimmers tune up for Olympic trials

March 21, 2024 — 

The former University of Manitoba Bisons standout is pushing toward a second trip to the Olympic Games, this time in Paris. She represented the Maple Leaf at the 2020 Tokyo Games, qualifying for the 200-metre breaststroke semifinal.

She will need to finish second or better and under the qualification standard at the trials to solidify a spot on Team Canada for the upcoming Summer Games.

“This year, it’s just about racing and executing my races how I want to, so the more often I can practice them at higher level meets, the better. I’m going to treat this meet as a great opportunity to practice executing what I’ve trained and to fine-tune how I want to prepare for my races in the day,” said Kelsey Wog, who is studying to attain a master’s degree in microbiology (thesis-based) at the U of M.
