Another talented athlete, Sydnee Hesse (13-14) is unable to attend due to personal commitments, but should be applauded on her qualification accomplishments.

These astonishing athletic endeavors are far more impressive due to the current lack of comprehensive training facilities on island, with only one working pool following COVID closures.

Head Coaches Wayne Mitchell and Nelson Molina are very excited for the athletic showing, with the team gathering for training in the week leading up to this international event.

The Antigua and Barbuda Swimming Federation (ABSF) congratulates these young athletes on their qualification achievements and supports them wholeheartedly in their endeavours in the upcoming competition.

The ABSF also extends great thanks to CIBC First Caribbean International Bank for their generosity and timely contribution.

  1. Just think what could be achieved if more swimming facilities were available! What can be done to give our young swimming athletes greater access to proper training and competitive swimming pools? Any generous donors out there?
