CI swimmer clocks commonwealth qualifying time

| 06/08/2013

(CNS): CARIFTA Champion and Island Games Medallist, Geoffrey Butler swam to a Commonwealth Games Qualifying time in the 1500m freestyle at the ASA National Youth Championships in Sheffield last week. Butler perfectly paced the 30 lap race and set a lifetime best of 16:13.12, only 2.4 seconds outside the CIASA record, and swam well inside the Commonwealth Games Qualifying Standard of 16:22.49. This should guarantee the young swimmer a place in the Cayman team for the games, which take place in Glasgow, Scotland, next year.
