Toronto Athletic Club Members Compete in 2017 Ontario Masters Swimming Championship

Toronto Athletic Club Members Compete in 2017 Ontario Masters Swimming Championship
Posted: Apr 27, 2017

On March 24th-26th, the 2017 Ontario Masters Swimming Championship took place in Markham at the Markham Pan Am Centre.  From Friday to Sunday, 75 clubs with over 500 swimmers competed in 18 individual events and 8 team relay events.  Records were broken, personal best times were achieved, and many adults “walked” into work Monday morning in a world of hurt and exhaustion, already looking forward to a post-competition massage and sleep.  


Six members from the Toronto Athletic Club participated in the competition. 

Rob Gouley (SOO) – 50/100/200 Back, 100/200 IM.  

Rob is an excellent swimmer who is strong in all strokes.  His specialty events are Backstroke and the Individual Medley (IM).   Rob brought home three gold and two silver medals from Provincials.  I have the pleasure of working with and coaching Rob in my Small Group Training class as he prepares for Nationals in May.  Congratulations Rob and keep up the hard work!

Brian Ma (North Toronto Masters SC) – 50/100/200 Breaststroke, 400 IM, Mixed 4x50 Meter Medley Relay and Mixed 4x50 Meter Free Relay. 

Brian had a fantastic meet shedding seconds and posting best times for all of his breaststroke events.  Not to mention bringing home some new hardware – 4 gold and 2 silver medals.  He is a Breaststroke and technique specialist who I have the pleasure of training with/coaching.  Congratulations Brian!

Kulin Matchhar (Downtown Swim Club) – 50/100 Free, 50 Fly, 100/200/400 IM, and Mixed 4x50 Meter Medley Relay.  

Not only did Kulin post personal best times in five out of six events, he also swam a new event (400 IM). Bringing home one bronze medal, plus two top five finishes. I coach Kulin in multiple settings and have seen nothing but improvement.  He puts in the hard work and the results show! Kulin, congratulations and keep up the hard work on the road to Nationals in QC.

Michael Obal (TAC) – 50/100/200 Free, 100 IM and 200 Back.
 

A regular in the pool at TAC, Michael is not new to hard work and competition.  Posting personal best times in the 200 Free and 100 IM, Michael brought home one bronze medal and four top seven finishes.  Not only do I get the opportunity to coach Michael in Small Group Training, but I also get to swim with him during masters lunch practices and summer training at Summerville Pool.  He brings many years of expertise, knowledge and he's not afraid to try something new. Congratulations Michael and keep up the hard work!


Chris Seto (TAC) – 50/100/200 Breast and 100 IM.  

I don’t have the pleasure of knowing Chris, but from what I’m told he sometimes trains at lunch with the TAC Masters group.  Chris finished with two fifth, a sixth and a ninth place finish.  Congratulations Chris and good luck with your training!

Craig Davidson (Downtown Swim Club) – 50/100 Free, 50 Fly, 100 IM, and Men 4x50 Meter Medley Relay.  


Craig is getting back into things and increasing his training after taking some time away from the pool.  He is young, fast and fun to swim with. His relay team took the gold medal with Craig anchoring with freestyle. He also came home with four individual top ten finishes. I am fortunate enough to coach Craig during one of his club practices, plus train with him when I can. Congratulations Craig and keep up the hard work!


Yours truly, Andrey Tihanyi (North Toronto Masters SC) – 100 Free, 100 Back, 400 IM, Mixed 4x50 Medley Relay and Mixed 4x50 Free Relay.  


After being out of competition for ten months, I was pleased with my performance.  Training five to six days a week is one thing, but competing is necessary to have a better understanding of where one lies. What are my strengths and weaknesses or areas I need to focus on.  Finishing the meet with one gold, two silver and two bronze medals, I look forward to the road ahead where I get to compete at Nationals (QC) and Worlds in Budapest, Hungary (Aug/17). 

Anyone interested in taking their training to the next level, whether you are getting ready for your next race or not, please feel free to come out and drop-in to my small group training class Thursday mornings from 7-7:45am. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to drop me a line at andrey@torontoathleticclub.com
