CCCAN SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS 2019 - RESULTS

Cayman’s National Swim Team returned from Barbados on Wednesday with five hard earned medals. The Central American and Caribbean Swimming Championship was hosted in Barbados at the Barbados Aquatics Center in Wildey, Christ Church, from June 28th to July 2nd, 2019.

 

The Central American and Caribbean Swimming Championship hosted 550 swimmers across all swimming disciplines and close to 400 swimmers in competitive swimming over 151 events. The races were swam as preliminary qualifying heats in the morning and finals in the evenings, a similar format to CARIFTA and other four or five day swim meets.

 

Eight Cayman swimmers made it through to the finals, resulting in one gold and four bronze medals. CCCAN is a more competitive meet than CARIFTA, as it includes swimmers from Central America and swimmers over 18 years old.
