Joao Pierre Campos Wins Back-to-Back on Day 2 of UANA Cup

2018 UANA Swimming Cup

The Mexican team continued to rack up medals on day 2 of the 2018 UANA Swimming Cup, designed for countries from Central and South America. They added another 29 medals to their 24 from Friday for 52 total, including 9 more titles. The country’s 11-12 girls continued to push the effort forward.

Argentina surged on Saturday with 5 event wins and 20 total medals. Brazil too more-than-doubled their Friday win total with 8 new victories to bring them to 15 in all.

In the boys’ 13-14 100 fly, Brazil’s Gustavo Saldo won in 57.61. For comparison, that would’ve tied as the 8th-fastest American in that age group last season.

Brazil also got back-to-back golds from 12-year old Joao Pierre Campos, who won the 100 fly in 1:02.02 and then topped the 200 free in 2:04.05. That 200 free left him three-seconds clear of the field.
