Welcome to the 55th Annual Mel Zajac Jr. International Swim Meet at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
The Mel Zajac Jr. International Swim Meet was originally founded in 1963 as Canada Cup by legendary swim coach Howard Firby. His vision was to bring elite talent to Vancouver to race local athletes, both to inspire the community and to develop international talent right here at home. The meet has since grown to become a fixture in Canadian swimming, and the largest of its kind in Western Canada. Since 1998, Mel Zajac Sr. graciously sponsored the meet in memory of his sons Mel and Marty. Mel Jr. was a member of the Canadian national team and competed at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal.
