Danica Ludlow is one of the fastest young freestylers in Canada.
Ludlow swims with the Prince George Barracudas and, within her age group, was ranked first in the nation in four freestyle events in 2011. At the 2011 World Trials Long Course Championships in Victoria she set a Barracudas record of four minutes 19.79 seconds in the 400-metre freestyle. Even though she was only a first-year junior, that clocking nearly landed her on Team Canada for the World Youth Championships.
In December, Ludlow swam for Team B.C. at a major meet in Oregon. She established four Barracudas records and was selected to the 2012 U.S. Youth Tour team.
