Two-time Olympian Brett Fraser will lead a team of four swimmers from the Cayman Island to the 2014 World Short Course Championships.
The meet will be held from December 3rd-7th in Doha, Qatar.
The full Cayman Islands team:
- Brett Fraser,
- Lara Butler
- Lauren Hew
- Geoffrey Butler
The Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association didn’t send anyone to the long course World Championships in 2013, but they did send a roster of 6 to this year’s Commonwealth Games as part of a 28-person all-sport team that is the biggest in the country’s history.
Of the four swimmers, only one (Lauren Hew) actually lives in the Cayman Islands.Brett Fraser lives and trains in the United States; Geoffrey Butler trains with Plymouth Leander in the UK, and Lara Butler trains with Loughborough also in the UK.
At the Commonwealth Games, Fraser was the country’s lone finalist. He finished 5th in the men’s 50 fly, and 13th in the men’s 50 free. Lauren Hew, though, showed some promise with a 14th-place swim in the semi-finals of the women’s 50 back, earning some valuable multi-round experience
