Top Trinidad and Tobago swimmer Dylan Carter said his silver medal swim in the Men’s 200 yard freestyle at the NCAA Division I men’s Swimming and Diving Championships was significant for the country and him personally.
The T&T senior women won gold at the Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation (CCCAN) Championship with a 9-5 defeat of Guatemala for a 3-0 record in the two-team event at the Guatemala National Swimming Pool, Guatemala City, on Friday.
T&T’s World Youth Olympic silver and bronze medal swimmer Dylan Carter has joined Olympic bronze medallist George Bovell (50m freestyle) on the national swimming team for the Rio Olympic Games.
After attending rehab, the swimmer is not fixated on adding to his record total of Olympic medals in Rio. The journey now is personal.
