Saskatchewan Para swimmers Shelby Newkirk and Nikita Ens were among 19 names announced by the Canadian Paralympic Committee and Swimming Canada who will be competing at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
Newkirk and Ens will be among the seven on the team making their Paralympic debut.
The section of Canada’s Para swim team involved multiple phases. Eight swimmers, including Newkirk, were nominated following medal performances at the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships, while seven athletes, including Ens, were selected last month based on their performance at the Championship. The final four athletes were nominated following a submission of training logs and data and a video-recorded time trial performance.
