More records for Ruck

It was another record setting week for Taylor Ruck.

The Kelowna-born swimmer established another Canadian record for medals at a single international meet.

This time, it was the Pac Pacific Championships which wrapped up today in Tokyo.

The 18-year-old won her fifth medal at the championships Sunday, a silver in the women's 200 metre backstroke.

Her time of two minutes, 6.41 seconds, was just behind American Kathleen Baker's winning time of two minutes, 6.14 seconds.

Earlier in the week, Ruck won gold in the 200 metre freestyle and bronze in the 100 free, 4x100 and 4x200 metre relays.

“I just wanted to do the best that I could and it’s so amazing to be able to accomplish that,” Ruck said in an interview following the race. “I couldn’t have done it without my relay teammates and all of Team Canada.

“This sets my expectations higher. I just love Japan and hopefully I’ll be able to come back here in two years."

The 2020 Summer Olympics will be held in Tokyo, albeit at a new pool which is still under construction.

Earlier this year, Ruck set a Canadian record with eight medals at the Commonwealth Games. That medal haul also tied the Commonwealth Games record.
