The CARIFTA Swim Championships open today at 9:00 a.m. at the Aquatic Centre with Barbados along with 19 other teams looking to take the title away from powerhouse The Bahamas.

The teams have spent the past two days fine tuning for the preliminary heats which will warm up the pool. After a commendable effort in water polo and synchronized swimming last week, the Bajans will be looking to do even better in the pool and open water events.

The opening ceremony will be held at 5:30 this evening and following that pomp and pageantry teams will be looking to begin filling their treasure chests with medals.

Barbados will be hoping for fine performances from Nkosi Dunwoody, Danielle Titus, Destiny Harding, Adara Stoddard, Chris Pollard, Diego Dulieu, Charlie Williams and Daniel Treasure.

The 16-year-old Titus, the most decorated swimmer in the team, will hunt for medals in the 15-17 age group.

Dunwoody, 16, a student at Harrison College, captured five golds and a relay bronze at the CARIFTA Championships in The Bahamas in 2017. (KB)
