The BC Aquasonics (BCAQ) had a powerhouse performance at the National Stream BC Provincial Synchronized Swimming Championships in Surrey earlier this year, taking home gold medals in six of seven events.
The BCAQ Senior National Stream Combo Team, including athlete Amy Whitton of Aldergrove, coached by Susan Kemper (Langley), achieved outstanding technical and artistic scores in the Junior/Senior Combo event, to take first place with a total score of 78.030, a clear six points higher than rivals Vancouver Pacific Wave.
“I am extremely proud of all of our athletes,” says head coach Susan Kemper. “Not only did our athletes win gold in their respective events, their outstanding scores are a reflection of their ability, conditioning, training, and readiness to compete.”
BC Aquasonics athletes at this event are National Stream synchronized swimmers in the 13-15 age group, Juniors (16-18 years) and Seniors (18+). National Stream synchronized swimmers compete at the highest level of competition in Canada. BC Aquasonics National Stream athletes and coaches represent communities across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.
The BC Aquasonics is British Columbia’s oldest, largest, and most successful synchronized swimming club. The Aquasonics have produced all but one Team Canada Athlete from the province of B.C., all of the Olympic team synchronized swimmers from B.C., and two Olympic Team coaches. Training in Coquitlam and Surrey, the club currently has its largest membership in over a decade with over 100 athletes, age six to 20, in introductory, recreational and competitive streams.
