Breaking Records: 17-Year-Old Summer McIntosh’s Remarkable Performance at 2024 Canadian Olympic & Paralympic Trials

17-year-old Summer McIntosh’s impressive growth was evident at the 2024 Canadian Olympic & Paralympic Trials. While she initially expressed dissatisfaction with her performance in the 400 free, McIntosh went on to break her own World Record in the 400 IM, posting a time of 4:24.38 and finishing first in the final. This achievement allowed her to take a second-and-a-half off her previous record and put her ahead of the second-fastest swimmer, Katinka Hosszu.

Comparing McIntosh’s splits from 2024 to 2023, it is clear that she made significant improvements, particularly in the breaststroke leg, which is considered her weakest stroke. Training with the Sarasota Sharks in Florida has helped McIntosh develop a strong background in swimming, having won four World Championships in long course events.

McIntosh secured spots on the Canadian Olympic Team for both the 400 free and 200 free earlier in the week, with remaining entries in the 200 fly and 200 IM. Despite facing tough competition, McIntosh’s dedication and talent have allowed her to excel in the pool and continue breaking records.
