first Olympics in the men's 4X100 medley relay as one of the alternates.
The highly-touted breaststroker is already in his second season with the
national team and has two Canadian titles to his credit, both earned at

Last season he made his first international impact winning two silver
medals at the World Cup stop in Edmonton. He added two more top-10
performances at World Cups in Europe.
