The Carifta 2021 aquatic championships have been cancelled.

Officials at the Barbados Aquatic Sports Association (BASA) confirmed that the meet scheduled to be held here this year has been abandoned due to novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Earlier this year, the swimming competitions were set to take place at the Barbados Aquatic Centre, Wildey, St Michael from April 3-6 but were postponed because of a spike in coronavirus cases worldwide.

Last November, BASA was given the green light to stage the meet after restrictions were lifted and permission was granted to stage sporting activities. (AG-B)
