Nelson’s Sarah Mehain has been nominated for Canada’s Paralympic swim team.
Mehain is one of 22 athletes set to compete at the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro this year. She earned her spot at the Para-swimming Trials, held last week in Toronto, by finishing second in the 50-metre butterfly and fifth in the 200 medley.
Canada’s official roster will be announced July 14. The Paralympics run Sept. 7 to 18.
Mehain won bronze at last year’s IPC Swimming World Championships. She swam with the Nelson Neptunes before moving to Vernon with her family when she was 12.
