BARBADOS have emerged victorious in open water swimming in the 12-13 age group at the Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation Championships in Trinidad.

The girls won the team champion trophy with 18 points, helped by Amelie Baker, who won gold in the open water 3K event. Hosts Trinidad and Tobago took second place with 16 points, and Colombia captured third place with 14 points.

The Trinidad and Tobago boys managed to keep the trophy at home with 48 points, ahead of Colombia who ended with 12 points.

In the 14-17 age group, Cuba took both the boys and girls team trophies. The boys finished ahead of Venezuela and Mexico, while the girls stole the top spot ahead of Cuba and Mexico.

Mexico captured both the girls and boys titles in the 18 and older categories.

The boys finished ahead of Colombia and Venezuela, while the girls toppled Venezuela and El Salvador.

In the combined teams, Mexico claimed top spot with 238 points. Second place was awarded to Venezuela who finished on 112 points, and Cuba brought up the rear, also with 112 points.

In water polo, while the Barbadian contingent was not as fortunate, they fought a hard battle.

In the 18 and under males, while not winning any of their match-up games, they made it to the semi-final against Puerto Rico where they were defeated 15-4.

In the open male category, the team was defeated by Jamaica 14-7, Trinidad and Tobago 19-1, Venezuela 31-3, and Cuba 33-2.

The excitement continues at CCCAN Championships with swimming and synchronised swimming finishing on Sunday. (RA)
