The 2014 CARIFTA Swimming Championships will pit the best juniors of Caribbean Swimming against each other in 11-12, 13-14, and 15-17 age groups. The meet will take place in Savaneta, Aruba and will serve as a qualifying event for both the Youth Olympic Games and the Central American and Caribbean Swimming Championships as well.
Many of the stars of this meet actually live and train in different countries. That includes names like Dustin Tynes of the Baylor Swim Club, who has long course breaststroke bests of 1:05.3 and 2:26.06 and represented his native Bahamas at last year’s Junior World Championships.
Trinidad & Tobago will send a strong group of 15-17 boys that includes Jabari Baptiste and David McLeod.
