5 medals so far for CARIFTA swimmers

Cayman Islands swimmers have hauled in five medals so far at the 2016 CARIFTA Swimming Championships, in Martinique.

Four of those medals came on day one (22 March) while at least one more was added during the Wednesday (23 March) session up to the time of this post.

Sabine Ellison won gold 22 March in the 11-12 year old girls 200-metre freestyle.

Lauren Hew on 23 March won gold in the 15-17 year old girls 100 backstroke with a time of 1-minute, 8.53 seconds.

Results from 23 March are not yet complete, so Cayman may have won more medals when all is said and done.

To round out the medal haul, Holly Stradling, Ria Plunkett and John Bodden each earned some hardware on day one of the meet.

Stradling won silver in the girls 13-14 year old 800-metre freestyle while Plunkett won bronze in the same event.

John Bodden won bronze in the boys 15-17 year old 1,500-metre freestyle.
