UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

TT SWIMMERS Zoe Anthony and Jada Chatoor grabbed a silver and bronze medal respectively at the Carifta Swimming Open Water 5km race held on Thursday at Carlisle Bay, Barbados.

Anthony, swimming in the Girls 14-15 category, stopped the clock at one hour, seven minutes and 18 seconds. The TT swimmer who performed exceptional over the past few days split the Cayman Islands dominance as Avery Lambert won the race in 1:07.11 while her teammate Raya Embury-Brown (1:07.24) placed third.

The Girls 16-18 age-group had the closest finish of the 5k race. Curacao`s Samantha Van Vuure was the winner while Elana Sinclair of Cayman Islands came second even though both swimmers clocked the same time of one hour, seven minutes and 10 seconds. The hard-working Chatoor captured the bronze medal with a time of 1:07.16.

TT`s Dominique Nurse-Allen (1:09.09) secured the fifth spot and Gabriella Acosta (1:15.00) rounded off the top 12.

Unfortunately, the boys didn’t medal but performed commendably with Marquise Nelson (1:08.25) placing fifth edging out his countryman Josiah Changar by one second (1:08.26) in the Boys 14-15. In the older category, Malik Nelson (1:05.26) was seventh, Adam Suite (1:11.29) was 11th and Jared De Silva (1:12.43) was 12th.

Earlier in the week, the TT swim team completed their Carifta Swimming Championship campaign with a well-deserved third place podium finish.

TT amassed 676 points inclusive of 43 medals (17 gold, 12 silver and 14 bronze medals). Jamaica placed second with 748 points while Bahamas took the top prize totalling 889.50 points.

This year saw a significant improvement from the twin-island`s 2018`s performance by recording a 100 point increase and climbing a spot higher on the podium after finishing fourth previously. Special recognition was given to the Boys 13-14 relay team (Zarek Wilson, Nikoli Blackman, Johann-Matthew Matamoro, Josiah Changar, Kyle West, Kadon Williams) having finished unbeaten from their four races.

Zoe Anthony (44 points) was the highest point contributor in the females followed by Gabriela Donahue (40), Jada Chatoor (36), Amelia Rajack (34), Anneliese Merry (25), Joy Blackett (23), Vrisnelit Faure (10), Amari Ash and Lyla Browne (nine each).

Nikoli Blackman topped the male`s points table with (41) then Zarek Wilson (39), Giovanni Rivas (22), Luke Gilette (16), Aqeel Joseph (15), Johann- Mtthew Matamoro (14), William Reyes (13) and Kyle West (12).
