Swimmers pool more medals
NOT EVEN THE WEATHER could rain on Barbados’ parade.
The medals just keep coming for our local swimmers, as the hosts added 13 more on a rain-drenched Friday night to increase their already historic Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation (CCCAN) Championships’ tally to 43 medals at the Aquatic Centre.
Led by yet another gold medal performance from Nkosi Dunwoody, the belligerent Bajans continued to leave the previous 2013 record haul of 29 in their wake after picking up five gold, four silver and four bronze medals on that penultimate night of competition.
The combined effort has Barbados third in the points table on 471 – trailing leaders Puerto Rico (715.33) and Costa Rica (646) – and also third in the overall medal count behind Costa Rica (54) and Puerto Rico (53) again.
