Ben Smith, the Bermuda and Sharks coach, said: “The Sharks coaches are very proud of our swimmers' performances at the National Championships.

“On the local calendar, this is the competition that we circle at the beginning of the year. Having so many of our swimmers perform their best at this time was satisfying to watch.”

The island's top swimmers will now set their sights on the Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation, which will take place from ?June 28 to July 2 in Barbados.
