BlazeSports Swim Team in 2014 Spring CanAm

Swim Cap2The World’s best Paralympic Swimmers were in Miami this weekend for the USA Paralympics Spring Swimming National Championships/Spring CanAm.  The event took place at the Ransom Everglades School Aquatics Center in Miami Florida from March 27th – 29th. 

According to US Paralympics, more than 200 athletes, including 2013 world champions Courtney Jordan, Jessica Long, Roy Perkins, Rebecca Meyers and Ian Silverman of the United States, as well as athletes from Cameroon, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Mexico and Russia competed in the event, which was the U.S. team qualifier for the Pan Pacific Para-Swimming Championships.

Four of the the Georgia Blazers met the qualifying times and competed in this prestigious event. 

  • Trey Davis, Dalton, GA

  • McClain Hermes, Dacula GA

  • Maya Kayn, Marietta GA

  • MeiMei White, Macon GA

Each of the Blazers had set individual goals for the meet, predominately to compete hard against their fellow competitors and to reduce their times in each event.   The Blazers range in age from 10 years old to 16 years old and in this field of top level competitors they are still very young.  This however did not impact their results.  Each of the Blaze Swimmers knocked considerable seconds from the majority of their times and meddled in at least one event.  

Their results are as follows:
