Elijah Daley and Connor Hupman win gold as swimmers take Carifta medal haul to 20

Elijah Daley picked up first gold of the meet in 200 metres butterfly

It’s getting difficult to keep count of the number of medals won by Bermuda’s swimming team at this year’s Carifta Games.

Heading into the third finals session, the squad had already picked up 14 medals, including three golds, and they added another five to that total with a string of fine performances on Monday night.

Again leading the way was Connor Hupman, who took his medal tally for the meet to five after picking up another gold in the boys 13-14 200 metres individual medley and silver in the 100 metres freestyle, adding to the three hopefully well secured in the safe of his Bahamas hotel room.

Elijah Daley, 17, is now just a medal behind Hupman after winning his first gold when finishing in a dead heat for first with Christian Jerome, of Haiti, in the boys 15 & Over 200 metres butterfly and winning silver in the boys 15-17 200 metres individual medley. Daley had won bronze in the 50 metres butterfly and silver in the 100 metres backstroke a day earlier.

The experienced Logan Watson-Brown, 20, won her third medal of the Games after finishing second in the girls 18 & Over 100 metres freestyle.

Bermuda took their tally to 20 when winning silver in the girls 15-17 800 metres freestyle relay and have more than doubled last year’s total of eight.
