K. SavardSince swimming in her first international final at the 2010 Pan Pacific Championships, Katerine Savard has emerged as one of leading women on the Canadian swimming team. After making her Olympic debut at London 2012, Savard enjoyed a breakout year in 2013 when she won gold in her specialty, the 100m butterfly, at the Summer Universiade in Games-record time of 57.63 seconds. She then made her second straight appearance at the FINA World Championships, finishing fifth in the 100m butterfly. After moving to Montreal for training, she added to her résumé in 2014, first setting a Canadian record of 57.27 seconds in the 100m butterfly at the Canadian Trials and then setting a Commonwealth Games record of 57.40 seconds to win gold in Glasgow. Savard also swam the butterfly leg of the 4x100m medley relay at the Commonwealth Games and Pan Pacific Championships, helping Canada to a pair of bronze medals.
