First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Bermuda have named a 23-strong squad to compete at the Carifta Swimming Championships in Barbados between April 20 and 23.

At the end of the qualifying period for selection to the Carifta Championships, Bermuda had 30 swimmers who had met the standards.

It was by far the most swimmers that have met the qualifying mark, however, after some athletes withdrew from selection because of injuries and conflict in scheduling, the final team was whittled down to 23 swimmers.

The team, who will travel to Barbados on April 17 and return home on April 24, will be accompanied by national coaches Ben Smith and Richard Goodwin along with team managers Tori and Dominic Powell.

“We are very pleased with the large number of swimmers that have qualified for this years Championships,” Smith said.

“We have a strong group of experienced swimmers that will be joined by ten first-time qualifiers.

“Recent results should help to build confidence in what the potential of this team is. We will be looking to continue to perform well against our region and hope to improve our overall ranking.

“These next couple of weeks of preparation will be important to bring the team together and to fine tune each swimmer before we travel.”
