For Martin, it was a double gold and double silver showing as she won the 50m backstroke and breaststroke and placed second in the 50m butterfly and freestyle.  

And Benoit turned in a two gold medal performance in the 35 to 39 age category for the 100m breaststroke and 200m individual medley.  She also captured silver in the 100m IM.
