Swimming Canada has chosen two Ottawa athletes to compete for Canada in the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia, from April 4-15, 2018. Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson and Eli Wall, both 22, will represent the nation’s capital at the Games. A 2016 Olympian, Barrhaven’s Seltenreich-Hodgson has swam with the Nepean-Kanata Barracudas and the Greater Ottawa Kingfish in Ottawa and now trains at Swimming Canada’s High Performance Centre in Vancouver. She barely missed the podium at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, setting personal-best marks in the 200 m IM and the 400 m IM. Wall also swam with the Kingfish and is now a swimmer at the University of Toronto Swim Club.
