 Nadine Rolland was one of the biggest surprises on the Canadian swim team. She unexpectedly made the squad in the 50-metre freestyle in her last opportunity at the summer nationals last month in Winnipeg. Rolland went under the qualifying standard clocking 25.94 however she finished third in the race (only two can qualify per event). But Marianne Limpert, who tied for first, was already qualified in several other events and gave up her 50 freestyle spot to Rolland.

  What's more surprising is that Rolland started training for the 50 freestyle just two months before the nationals. She previously specialized in the backstroke. She studied sports administration in France for two years where she met her current coach Patrick Clement.
