Jordan Augier achieved a swimming first for Saint Lucia when he captured two medals at the 28th Central American and Caribbean championships (CCCAN) in Costa Rica last week.
Augier became the first male Saint Lucian swimmer to ever achieve a medal at this level. Swimming in his favoured backstroke events, Augier captured a silver in the 50m and bronze in the 100m. His 1:02.09 in the 100m and 27.10 in the 50m were also national records.
Brad Worrell placed fifth in the 200m breaststroke, establishing a new national record of 2:40.16. He also swam a national record in the 100m breast with a time of 1:08.36 and placed fifth in the finals.
In the 100m butterfly, Runako Daniel took the race out like a champ and was second up until the 75m mark. He tightened up on the finish and dropped to sixth (difference between third and sixth was less than a second) in a time of 58.77. He had swum a national record in the preliminaries with a time of 58.36.
Daniel also picked up a national record in the 50m breast with a time of 30.95.
