Double Gold for LaSalle's Kylie Masse

Two gold medals for LaSalle's Kylie Masse at the U.S. Winter National Championships at the Greensboro Aquatic Centre in North Carolina.

Masse won the 200-metre backstroke on the final day of competition, touching in at 2 minutes, 9.92 seconds.

"I just wanted to put together a good race and see where I'm at," says Masse. "I would have liked to have been a bit faster, but my coach reiterated to me that I didn't really start focusing on this race until after the Olympics. I'm still learning how to swim it and I try to learn something every time I do."

It the second gold medal of the championships for the 22-year-old, who also won the 100-metre backstroke on Friday.

"Training for the 200 helps my 100 and vice versa. I'm still getting more comfortable ever time I swim the event," she says.
