In grade eleven at BSS, Aleksa Gold is a competitive swimmer for the Toronto Swim Club, and a competitive Runner for Central Toronto Athletic Club and BSS. This fall, placing tenth, Aleksa helped lead the BSS Senior Girls Cross Country team to victory at OFSAA. Following this, competing for Central Toronto Athletic Club, Aleksa impressively placed second at Cross Country Nationals in Kingston, Ontario.  Her results as a swimmer are equally impressive. In 2015, she placed third in four events at Junior Nationals. At Olympic trials, she came in the top twenty. Ranked in the top three and top five in the country for her age in some of her events, Aleksa is among the best athletes Canada has to offer. She also trains with the best of the best. Aleksa’s teammate, Penny Oleksiak, was a four time Olympic Medalist at the 2016 Olympic Games. Taylor Lamb, a BSS student and swimmer at the Toronto Swim Club, expressed that “Aleksa’s an awesome teammate, dedicated and a hard worker. I love training with her.” Committed to her school work, and two competitive sports, BSS is lucky to have such a devoted athlete representing the school. Perhaps Aleksa will be representing BSS and Canada at the 2020 Summer Olympic Games!
