Wednesday 9th September 2015. The final day of competition for Team TTO kicked off at the Tuana’imato Sports Facility. Last events carded were the 50m freestyle and 400m Freestyle Final.

Jeron swam the 50m freestyle preliminaries finishing 25.15. In order to move on to the finals, there was a swim off between Jamaica, Barbados, Jersey and Trinidad and Tobago. He won the swim off with a time of 24.74 which is a new personal best time and qualified him for the B Finals. In the Finals, Jeron placed 15th overall with a time of 25.10.

Amira Pilgrim placed 2nd in the preliminary rounds of the women's 50m freestyle in 27.13, which earned her a qualifying spot in the A Finals later that evening. Swimming out of lane 8 in the Finals, Amira completed her lap in 27.11 to earn 7th place overall of the fastest swimmers.

Trinidad and Tobago joined together with other neighbouring countries from the Caribbean to swim in an exhibition 400m Freestyle Final. Team TTO paired with Grenada, Antigua and Bermuda, Barbados and Turks & Caicos. The mixed team finished in 3rd position in 3:30.20.

One highlight for Team TTO was the opportunity to take part in UNICEF’s Just Play Programme. The Samoa 2015 Chef Jeannette Small, Akidah and Akanni engaged in football with young kids from the small Pacific Island. The Just Play Programme promotes physical activity for children aged 6 - 12 years old through football-related activities, while also addressing endemic issues such as non-communicable diseases, poor nutrition, gender equality, stigma and discrimination towards children with disabilities.
