T&T record-breakers to contest December invitational
« on: December 10, 2009, 06:18:34 AM »
The last one for the year. i95 will be on hand for live broadcast at 6PM today. If anyone in the west, come through, it should be a decent meet.


Top swimmers Kimberlee John-Williams, Dylan Carter, Miko Cruz, Abraham McLeod, Napoleon Howell and Jeron OíBrien, who all broke records at the recently-concluded National Short Course Open, will splash into action when the Amateur Swimming Association of Trinidad and Tobago hosts its annual ASATT December Invitational at Marlins Swim Pool Westmoorings from December 10-13.¬

The six Trinidad and Tobago swimmers are expected to be among a field of more than 362 participants competing at the four-day meet, which will feature swimmers from other Caribbean countries including Grenada, Barbados, St Lucia and Guyana at the Marlins facility, splashing off from tomorrow until Sunday.

John-Williams and Carter were among T&Tís outstanding swimmers at the Central American and Caribbean Aquatic Age-Group Championships (CCCAN) in Venezuela and helped the national team to second spot behind the hosts.

Others expected to compete include England-based Christian Homer, who touched down in Trinidad from his UK base on Sunday, and Cherelle Thompson, two other top performers at the CCCAN Games.

Several national records are expected to be broken since the world governing body of swimming, FINA, has approved the meet as an official qualifier for the inaugural Youth Olympics in 2010 in Singapore.

Three of T&Tís swimmers have already qualified for the Youth Olympics and this would provide an opportunity to register times in additional events and for new swimmers to qualify.
