Sarah Mehain continued to show her work ethic in 2015, qualifying for the IPC Swimming World Championship in Glasgow, Scotland, and the Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games.

At the Speedo Can Am Para-swimming Championships, Mehain reached the podium in five S7 events. She was second in the 50-metre butterfly and 100-m backstroke and third in the 200-m individual medley, 50-m and 100-m freestyle.

Mehain was Canada’s busiest swimmer at the 2013 IPC World Championships in Montreal, competing in six individual events. The highlight was a bronze medal, her first major international podium finish, in the 100-m backstroke. She was also fourth in the 100-m breaststroke and 200-m individual medley, fifth in the 50-m freestyle and 50-m butterfly and sixth in the 100-m freestyle. She set four personal bests, including a Canadian record in the 100-m breaststroke.

In 2014 at the Pan Pacific Para-swimming Championships in Pasadena, she won a bronze medal in the 100-m breaststroke and was fourth in the 50-m freestyle, 50-m butterfly, 200-m individual medley and 100-m backstroke.

At her first Paralympic Games in 2012 she reached the final in four of her six events, placing sixth in the 50-m butterfly and seventh in the 50-m freestyle, 100-m breaststroke and 200-m individual medley. That included a Canadian record in the breaststroke and bettering her personal best IM time by six seconds.
