A University of Manitoba swimmer has set a new team and provincial record at the 2012 Canada Cup in Toronto.

Bison swimmer Dillion Perron won two races this past Saturday when he placed first in both the 50m and 100m breaststroke events during the two-day meet.

The 20-year-old started the Canada Cup on top of the podium with a record performance as he won the men’s 50m breaststroke in a time of 28.05 and set a new Bison record in that event (old Bison record was Braeden Taylor 28.49 in 2011) during day one.

Bison second year men’s swimmer Artur Kroitor, 20, won the ‘B’ Final and finished ninth in the men’s 50m freestyle race.

Perron and Kroitor have already qualified for the 2013 CIS Swimming Championship to be held at University of Calgary from February 21-23, 2013.
