Weathers: CARIFTA performance bodes well for the future

Cayman’s top swimming coach says the CARIFTA performance could be a preview of what’s to come for the country’s swimmers on the international stage.

Cayman Islands Swimming Technical Director Bailey Weathers says 15 medals at the meet surpassed coaches’ expectations and was a pleasant surprise as many athletes were young for their age groups. He says this core group likely will become familiar names in Cayman swimming over the next few years.

“I think this is really kind of the start of the next quad for us, the next Olympic Games” Weathers said Sunday (27 March) as the team returned home from Martinique. “So these kids — other than Lauren Hew — are really pointing for 2020. So this is kind of a starting point. And to have two really successful CARIFTAs back-to-back, it really helps us to just plan and prepare for the next four years.”
