Erin Miller finishes 4th at Pan-Am
GUADALAJARA, Mexico, October 15 - University of Alberta Pandas swimmer Erin Miller just missed out on a medal placing during the first day of long course meter action at the Pan American Games in Mexico.
The fifth- year swimmer swam to a time of 1:00.49 in the women's 100m fly, a race that saw the USA finish in all three podium spots, including a record setting win by gold medalist Claire Donahue. Miller's fourth place finish was ahead of swimmers from Mexico, Columbia, Jamaica and Venezuela.
The result is just another strong showing for Miller, who recorded a number of medals during the summer. She is joining the Pandas program this season after four years with the UBC Thunderbirds.
At the Nations Cup meet, where she swam for Canada against France, Brazil and Denmark, Miller claimed gold for Canada in both the 100m and 200m butterfly and also swam butterfly on the gold medal winning 400 Medley Relay.
Before that, while competing at the Canadian Swimming Championships and Pan-Am Games Trials, July 21-24 in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Miller picked up two silver medals and a new Alberta provincial record.
She broke the record and claimed silver on Saturday, July 23, in the 100m butterfly event, one day after she finished second, by a mere 7/100ths of a second, in the 200m butterfly race.
She was one of three University of Alberta swimmers to find a measure of success at the Canadian championship, as fellow Panda Kayla Voytechek swam in the 100m breaststroke finals, while Josh Au swam to a top 10 placing in the 100m fly race.
Both Miller and Voytechek also had success at the Fran Crippen Swim Meet of Champions in Mission Viejo, California, where Voytechek collected bronze in the 100m breaststroke, and Miller nabbed a pair of fourth place finishes in the 100m and 200m butterfly events.
The competitive U of A swimming season begins at the end of October with a dual meet against the Calgary Dinos. The Golden Bears and Pandas will serve as hosts for the Canada West swimming championships January 27-29 at the Kinsmen Pool.
