KISU’s Tyler Wall helped Team BC haul more medals out of the Pan Am Pool in Winnipeg Wednesday evening.
Wall has five medals. He struck for gold in the 100 metre freestyle and 4×200-m free relay, silver in the 4×100-m free relay and two bronze medals in the 100-m back stroke and 4×50-m free relay.

Wall anchored the 4×100-m relay team. Earlier in the evening, he took the bronze in the 100m backstroke. “It actually hurt this time,” said Wall, describing his anchor leg of the race. “I was hurting quite a bit, but I gave it my all.”
With Wednesday’s podium performances, BC now has several multiple medallists in swimming at the Games. KISU’s Acacia Benn placed fourth in the 400-m freestyle.
Soccer team in quarter-finals
Pinnacles FC and Thompson-Okanagan FC grad Bjorn Borren helped B.C. to a 3-1 win over Nova Scotia on Wednesday.
The first rainy day offered the team a chance to avenge their female counterparts with a 3-1 victory over Nova Scotia. The women’s team was knocked out of their tournament in a heartbreaking quarterfinals loss to the Maritimers last week, so the boys had extra motivation. With the win, BC secures first place in their pool and will play Alberta in the knockout round. That match will be played at 5:30 p.m.
