Parent just short of another medal

Alex Parent was just .37 seconds from being able to add to the gold medal he’s already collected at the Canada Games in Regina.
Parent, 16, clocked in at 1:17.29 in the 100m backstroke last night at the Lawson Aquatic Centre in the 100m backstroke, but Aaron Schlecter of British Columbia was a hair faster at 1:16.92 to grab the bronze medal.
A full field of eight swimmers competed in the race, with the winner being Devin Gotell of Team Nova Scotia (1:14.30). A Quebec swimmer was second with a time of 1:14.41.
Parent, who collected a gold medal Tuesday in the 100m freestyle, has four more events to race tonight and tomorrow for Team Ontario.
Quebec leads the Games with 52 medals, followed by Team Ontario at 45. British Columbia sits at third place (30) while Nova Scotia (24) and Alberta (22) round out the top five.
