Swimmers and Ashley.jpg(CNS): Both Shaune Fraser and Brett Fraser competed in Florida Summer Sectionals at the Hall of Fame pool In Ft. Lauderdale, Florida recently as a warm up to their departure for Ireland and pre-Olympic games training.  The meet went very well for both of the swimmers with Shaune winning the 200m freestyle in a time of 1:52.30 and his younger brother Brett finishing close behind in a time of 1:52.49. Theboys are now in Dublin and have already started their training alongside some of their Florida Gator teammates who will also compete in London for their respective countries.

“It's starting to settle in that the games are fast approaching and I am starting to feel more and more prepared each day,” said Brett who along with Shaune will head for the London 2012 Olympic Village on the 25 July.

While in Ireland, the swimmers will be resting and acclimatizing to the similar conditions that they will be subject to in London. The weather has been cool and rainy with the sun coming out on occasion, which they say is a nice change from the heat. 

Ashley Stern, the physiotherapist for the Cayman Islands team for the first half of the Games, also accompanies them.
