Madelyn Moore finishes strong at CCCAN Championships with four golds
Madelyn Moore wrapped up her participation at the Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation Championships with four gold medals in total after two more first-place finishes on the weekend in Puerto Rico.
Moore, who earlier in the week won gold medals in the 18 and over 100 metres freestyle and 50 metres butterfly, which was both a personal best and meet record, won gold again in the 50 metres freestyle on Saturday and the 100 metres butterfly yesterday.
In the 50 freestyle, Moore touched the wall in 25.82 seconds, just ahead of Allyson Ponson, of Aruba, who clocked 25.98 for the silver. Keyla Brown, of Puerto Rico, took the bronze when she finished in 26.68.
Moore was also unstoppable in the butterfly final last night, finishing first in 1min 2.21sec to edge out Julimar Avila, of Honduras in 1:02.31, while Celisma Guzman of Puerto Rico took the bronze when she finished third in 1:03.08.
Jesse Washington, Bermuda’s other swimmer at the CCCAN Championships, placed fifth in the 18 and over boys 50 metres freestyle final, clocking 24.17 seconds. Louis Ortiz, of Puerto Rico, won the gold in 22.82.
