At just 14 years old, swimmer Summer McIntosh set a Canadian record in the 400-metre freestyle at the Tokyo Olympics.

The young Canadian secured her place in the final on Sunday, July 25, clocking a time of four minutes and 02.72 seconds. She beat Brittany MacLean's previous record of four minutes and 03.43 seconds at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The Ontarian, who has already smashed 50 Canadian age group records, is making her first appearance at the Olympic Games. She is the youngest Canadian athlete competing at the Tokyo Olympics.

Last May, the athlete swam the 400-metre freestyle in 4:05.13 seconds, the fastest time ever for a Canadian swimmer aged 14.

Her talents might be genetic, too. Her mother, Jill Horstead, was also an Olympian swimmer — she participated in the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984.
