Thompson books ticket to Commonwealth Youth Games

Monday, March 20 2017

JERON THOMPSON of Atlantis Aquatics qualified for the Commonwealth Youth Games in July in Nassau, Bahamas, with a gold medal swim in the 50-metre breaststroke at the National Age Group Long Course Swimming Championships on Saturday night, at the National Aquatic Centre, Balmain, Couva.

Thompson won the 15-17 male edition of the event in 29.87 seconds surpassing the qualifying time of 30.32. The 2015 First Citizens Youth Sportsman of the Year also added to his cadre of CCCAN and CARIFTA Qualifying times via this swim, and marginally missed the qualifying standard for the FINA World Junior Championships in Indiana, United States in August.

In addition to the 50m breaststroke, Thompson also won the male 200 individual medley on the night (two minutes 20.19 seconds).

Aqeel Joseph of Sea Hawks, Zoe Anthony of Marlins, Zarek Wilson of Blue Dolphins and Joy Blackett of Tidal Wave each won three gold medals apiece on night four of the Championships. Joseph won the 13- 14 male 200m freestyle (2:12.25), 200m individual medley (2:30.39) and 100m backstroke (1:07.05) and, in the process, achieved CARIFTA and CCCAN Qualifying times.

Wilson and Blackett had a repeat of their Friday triple gold medal performances.

Wilson won the 11-12 male 200m freestyle (2:12.66) and 200 IM (2:35.73) achieving CCCAN and CARIFTA qualifying times. In the 100m back he won in a CARIFTA Qualifying time of 1:13.57.

The 11-12 male 50m breaststroke saw four athletes achieve qualifying times for both regional meets. Kyle West of Marlins (34.88) won the gold in this event ahead of joint silver medallists Wilson and Riquelio Joseph (35.12) of Sea Hawks. Josiah Changar of Sea Hawks was fourth in 37.56. Blackett won the 9-10 female 100m freestyle (1:10.04), 50m breaststroke (42.59) and 100m backstroke (1:26.13).

The meet concluded last evening while the CARIFTA team is expected to be selected after an ASATT meeting tomorrow evening.
