Madelyn Moore and Emma Harvey win swimming medals at CAC Games
Bermuda’s swimmers have picked up two medals in their final night of competition in the Central American and Caribbean Games.
Madelyn Moore produced an inspired swim just half an hour after finishing seventh in the 50 metres butterfly to win silver in the 50 metres freestyle.
Starting from lane five after finishing second fastest in qualifying, Moore touched the wall in 25.79sec to finish just 0.35 seconds behind Tayde Revilak, of Mexico, who won the gold.
Moore was not the only Bermudian to find herself on the podium on Thursday night after Emma Harvey picked up her second medal of the meet when winning bronze in the 50 metres butterfly.
Harvey recorded a time of 27.11 to finish third behind Tayde Sansores of Mexico and Venezuela’s Lismar Lyon. Moore finished seventh in 27.44.
Harvey had qualified second-fastest in the morning session in 27.22 and was forced to better that time to secure her second medal at this year’s games in El Salvador.
On Saturday, Harvey won Bermuda’s first medal when winning silver in the 50 metres backstroke.
Benedict Parfit was also in action on the final night of competition in the 50 metres freestyle B final. He finished fifth in a time of 23.49sec, which was good enough for thirteenth overall.
