Swimming: Ellison gold, Crooks double bronze lead 6-medal run on day two of CARIFTA Championships

 

Cayman’s amateur swimmers added to their 10-medal opening day performance with a 6-medal run on day two (1 April) of the 2018 CARIFTA Championships in Jamaica.

After winning gold on day one in the 200 breast, 14-year old Sabine Ellison won her second gold medal of the championships in the 13-14 girls 400 IM (see video above) with a time of 5:20.22 seconds. Ellison’s teammate, 13-year old Avery Lambert finished just outside the podium with a time of 5:32.25 , good for 4th overall.

11-year old Jillian Crooks continued to impress with two bronze medals on day two. After winning silver in the 100 fly with a time of 1:09.31 (national & CIASA record), Crooks followed it up with a bronze in both the 200 free (2:19.09) and 50 fly (30.95). Crooks also secured a top five finish in the 100 back (5th, 1:15.71).

12-year old Stefano Bonati also won his second bronze of the championships Sunday with a podium finish in the 100 back (1:12.92). Bonati previously won bronze on a day one in the 200 breast.

14-year old Jake Bailey swam to his first medal Sunday, winning bronze in the 400 IM in a time of 5:01.38. Sister Samantha, 17,  also reached the podium for the first time on day two winning bronze in the 15-17 girls 400 IM (5:19.11).

Cayman also secured multiple top five performances starting with 12-year old Brittany Chin in the 100 back (5th, 1:15.71). Additionally Chin, 12, along with Allyson Bellfonte, Jillian Crooks and Abbey Walton placed 4th place in the 11-12 girls 4×100 relay. Cayman’s 13-14 girls also placed 4th overall in the 4×100 relay.

After winning bronze on day one in the 15-17 boys 1500 free, 17-year old Alex Dakers took 4th place in the 400 IM (4:56.95).
