Tess Routliffe

 

Tess Routliffe continued her development in 2015, where she qualified for the IPC Swimming World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, and the Toronto 2015 Parapan Am Games. Routliffe showed her versatility by winning six medals at the Speedo Can Am Para-swimming Championships in Toronto. She placed second in the S7 50-metre, 100-m and 400-m freestyle, plus the 200-m individual medley and 100-m breaststroke. She was third in the 100-m backstroke.

Routliffe showed her vast potential at the 2014 Pan Pacific Para-swimming Championships in reaching the final in six individual events at age 16. The highlight was a silver medal in the S7 100-m breaststroke. She also posted four fifth place finishes and a sixth.

She earned her first berth on a Canadian national senior team following solid performances at the Can Am Championships in Miami, where she won four gold medals and set seven personal best times. Routliffe credits the national team camp held in Florida just prior to the event for helping her develop many new skills and experience different kinds of training.
