Madelyn Moore and Jesse Washington to represent Bermuda at World Championships

Madelyn Moore and Jesse Washington will represent Bermuda at the Fina World Championships in Hungary this summer

Madelyn Moore and Jesse Washington have been selected to represent Bermuda in the 19th Fina World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

The Bermuda Amateur Swimming Association confirmed yesterday that the pair will be Bermuda’s representatives at the championships which will take place from July 18 to 25.

The championships were originally scheduled for Fukuoka, Japan, but were moved to Budapest when the host country had to withdraw.

Moore and Washington, who were controversially denied the opportunity to swim at the Tokyo Olympics last summer, attended the last long-course World Championships in 2019 in Gwangju, South Korea. Moore recently was at the short-course World Championships in Abu Dhabi last December.

Moore will be competing in the 50 metres freestyle, 100 freestyle and the 50 butterfly while Washington will compete in the 100 freestyle and 50 butterfly.

“Washington will continue his preparation in Bermuda while he continues to balance a full work schedule,” said Ben Smith, the Basa head coach. “Moore will return to Colorado to continue her preparation before returning to travel with the team.

“Both athletes are excited with their selection and are looking forward to racing in Budapest, which looks to be the first step of a busy summer season.”
