Barbados’ top junior swimmers will be in action today when the International Invitational meet starts at the Aquatic Centre.

CARIFTA medallists Danielle Treasure, Keilani Talma along with Diego Dulieu and Jake Chee-A-Tow are expected to headline the return of local swimming over the weekend.

A total of 183 swimmers have been entered to participate in the event from October 8 to 10, with seven local teams and one competitor from St Lucia.

It will be the first international meet at the Aquatic Centre since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and no spectators will be allowed into the venue in Wildey, St Michael.

Local competitors will have the opportunity to qualify for the 2022 Aquatic CARIFTA Swimming Championships as the age categories will range from eight-and-under to 15-and-over.

The last winners were the Pirates Swim Club, who scored 1 266 points. Alpha Sharks Swim Club were second and High Tide Stingrays third. (AGB)
