Local Swimmer Contributes to Top CARIFTA Performance

The Bahamas continued their dominance last week claiming the top spot among elite junior swimming programmes in the region at CARIFTA. The 36-member team won back-to-back CARIFTA Swimming Championships and their fourth title in five years. Roman Pinder (above) of the Abaco Swim Club was a part of the team and contributed four of the 56 medals won, including one individual Bronze medal in the 50M Freestyle, along with three Silver medals in relays. Roman swam six Individual events, making the finals in all six, and recording Personal Best Times in all. The team completed the four-day meet with a total of 789 points. They finished 181 points ahead of second place finisher and 2016 champion Guadeloupe, who scored 608. Jamaica finished third with 607.5 points, Trinidad and Tobago scored 576 and the Cayman Islands rounded out the top five with 502.5 points.
