Cayman’s swimmers were back in the pool Saturday (21 May) for the Lions Sprint Meet, at Lions Pool.

Cayman 27 crews caught some tight backstroke battles. Click on the video for highlights.

Among the meet’s high-points winners were Stingray Swim Club’s Alison Jackson, Corey Frederick-Westerborg and Iain McCallum. Each of them won five individual events.

The meet is sponsored by the Lions Club and registration is free, which allows more children to get involved in competitive swimming.

“Everyone has to start somewhere,” Stingray Swim Club Head Coach David Pursley said. “Not everyone’s gonna start right at the top. And to draw people in; it’s intimidating to at first come to a swim meet. See the scoreboard, see the touch pads and see what all these other kids that have been swimming for years are doing. So if you’re just starting out, we gotta find a way to welcome you into the sport, to make you feel a part of it and to allow everyone and anyone a chance and an opportunity to participate and compete.”
