Titus knocks off IM record standard with record
BARBADOS’ top female swimmer Danielle Titus broke a six-year-old record to set the standard on the opening night of the Short Course National Swimming Championships on Tuesday night at the Aquatic Centre.
Representing Alpha Sharks, Titus captured the 100 metres Individual Medley for Girls’ 15-17 in 1:07.17 minutes, eclipsing the 1:07.66 established on March 12, 2013, by Zabrina Holder.
Placing second was Titus’ clubmate Ashley Weekes, who touched the wall in 1:14.90 minutes with the unattached Shirkeitha Hunte taking third in 1:25.66.
There were predictable results on the night, with another Alpha duo of Nkosi Dunwoody and McCallum Clarke finishing one-two in the Boys’ 100 IM.
Dunwoody took the gold in 59.44 seconds while Clarke ended in 1:04.30 minutes. Pirates’ Eric Lashley won the bronze in 1:09.03. (KB)
