|Noemie Thomas named TAS Youth Athlete of the Month|| |
September 10, 2010
Don’t let her youth surprise you! Fourteen year old Noemie Thomas from Richmond, BC is already making waves on the swimming scene in Canada. Training under the guidance of coach Tom Rushton, ten times a week at the Winskill Dolphins Swim Club has certainly seen some results for this ninth grader at McMath Secondary School. She holds a number of provincial records and is currently the 11-12 and 13-14 Girls Canadian record holder for the 100 butterfly.
In 2010 Noemie was a member of the Canadian Prospects Team which competed at the Montreal Canada Cup where she was a finalist in 50, 100, and 200 fly and helped to win a silver medal in the women’s 4 x 100 Medley Relay. Thomas was also selected to compete at the North American Challenge Cup but ended up swimming up to the Jr. Pan Pacs where she was the youngest member of the team. It was at the Jr. Pan Pacs where she swam her personal best time of 1:00.20 in the 100 Fly, and claimed that new National record for 13-14 girls. It was this performance in Maui that resulted in SNC naming her as the Team Aquatic Supplies, Female Youth Athlete of the month for September 2010!
