Historic showing for Barbados at swimming championships


Nkosi Dunwoody has so far collected eight medals to lead Barbados’ charge at the Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation 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).

    I’m Nkosi’s Father from the US…and thanks for the nice articles about my son’s success and the teams achievements ! Thanks to his mother Adua Kinch for making sure the sticks to the plan, eating, drinking, sleeping and practicing properly daily…. it’s a challenge and the team pushes him that makes him better.

    Also, all praises goes to God for his continued strength, health & success as much praises also goes to his knowledgeable coach Tony and the other team coaches.
