Jeron Thompson will be first on the blocks from Trinidad and Tobago today as himself and Kael Yorke represent Trinidad and Tobago at the sixth FINA World Junior Swimming Championships in Indianapolis, United States.
This biennial competition is open to females aged between 15-18 and males between 14-17 years of age, and will feature over 600 swimmers from 93 countries over six days of competition, starting today.
Thompson will be the first to face the starter at 9.30 am as he lines up for the 100-metre breaststroke. Both Yorke and Thompson will be in action tomorrow as they compete in the 100m butterfly and 200m freestyle respectively.
No TT swimmer featured at the 2015 Championships in Singapore. However, TT earned its first World Juniors medal in 2013, where Dylan Carter got silver in the 50m butterfly.
