Summer McIntosh sure knows how to make a splash. The 16-year-old swimmer didn’t just win her five events at the Canadian World Swimming Trials. She broke records in all five. Two of them were world records!

The trials took place at the Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre. The stakes were high. Winners would earn a ticket to the World Aquatics Championships this summer and the Pan Am or Parapan Am Games this fall. They’d also boost their shot at an Olympic or Paralympic berth.
