Historic showing for Barbados at swimming championships
Barbados continued to rack up more medals at the Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation Championships being held at the Aquatic Centre.
On yesterday’s penultimate night, the hosts collected 13 more medals – five gold, four silver and four bronze – to increase their tally to 43.
With one day of action remaining, the home team has already smashed their previous record haul of 29, which they collected at the 2013 Championships.
Their performance means Barbados now sit third in the points standings with 471 points, behind leaders Puerto Rico on 715.33 and second placed Costa Rica on 646 points.
They are also third in the medal count, once again behind Puerto Rico (53) and Costa Rica (54).
