First in a series of CMSC member profiles.
There are a number of CMSC swimmers who have excelled in competition over the years as a Masters athlete. But few have been as successful as Jeff Welechuk, who has been with us for almost 20 years. His efforts have been recognized by Masters Swimming Canada who inducted him into MSC’s Hall Of Excellence in 2013.
An excellent swimmer in all 4 strokes (he owns Canadian Records in IM and Backstroke), the back stroke is his specialty. A highlight of many meets is watching Jeff with his amazing underwater starts. He ages up in 2015 and we expect to see a number of new Alberta and Canadian records added to his personal portfolio.
