Four swimmers represented Saint Lucia at the Fina World Championship in South Korea this past week, namely JayhanOdlum Smith, Naima Hazel, Mikaili Charlemagne and Jean Luc Zephir.
Each swimmer participated in two events with their clear goals in mind, whilst attempting to achieve their personal goals.
Mikaili Charlemagne snatched the 100 meter freestyle National and Age Group record previously held by Katie Kyle with a time of 1 minute 00.27 seconds.
Naima Hazel also claimed the new Age Group record in the 50 meter breaststroke with a time of 34.79 seconds. She also held that record with a time of 34.87 seconds set May 24th, 2019.
The Saint Lucia Aquatic Federation (SLAF) congratulates all the swimmers who participated and look forward to the Pan American Games in Peru with swimmer Jean Luc Zephir and the Fina Junior World Championship.
SLAF also continues to work tirelessly on the Goodwill Swim Meet scheduled to be held in Suriname next month.
