Six events. Six medals.
You can’t really warm up for the B.C. Summer Games any better than the way Armstrong’s Brea Duncan did.

On day two, Duncan rocked her 100m free with a personal best (PB) time of 1:58.27, taking more than 10 seconds off to win a bronze medal. She shaved 1.5 seconds off her personal best in the 200m individual iedley to win silver.
The fourth silver came on day three in the 100m breaststroke with a time of 2:16.6, taking 4.11 seconds off her best time.
On the final day of competition, Duncan took bronze in the 50m free with a PB of 52.86, 2.27 seconds faster than her previous best.
Duncan hopped on the bus with her mom, Jocelyn, Wednesday, July 20 for the trek to Prince George for the B.C. Summer Games, which kick off Thursday with the Opening Ceremonies. Competition begins Friday.
