Orillia Channel Cats will be welcoming 2012 Canadian Olympian Tera Van Beilen
as our Guest Speaker this season. Tera won a gold medal in the women’s 100-metre breaststroke and a silver in the 200-metre breaststroke in the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore.
In 2012, while competing in the Canadian Olympic trials in Montreal, Van Beilen qualified for the Olympics. She placed first with a time of 2:24.03, ahead of Canadian swimmer Martha McCabe with a time of 2:24.81. Van Beilen’s timing placed her second in the world for 2012, behind the 2:22.73 time of reigning American Olympic champion Rebecca Soni
During the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Van Beilen received much attention as a Canadian Olympian. She participated in the women’s 100-metre and 200-metre breaststroke categories, as well as the women’s 4×100-metre medley relay. While competing in the women’s 100-metre breaststroke, she proceeded to the semi-finals, only to be eliminated in a swim-off with Alia Atkinson of Jamaica.
