The Haitian National Swim Team sent a 4 person delegation: Coach Alain Sergile (1996 Haitian Olympian) and athletes Laila Michel, Emilie Grand’Pierre and Alexandre Grand’Pierre to the CCCAN Games in Barbados June 28th – July 2nd.
Our fourth athlete Davidson Vincent was set to swim the 50 & 100 fly and participate in the first ever Haitian Relay Team. Unfortunately, due to Visa issues, he was unable to travel from Haiti. We are working hard to resolve this issue and complete our Relay Team.
A Silver Medal was won by Emilie Grand’Pierre in the 50m breaststroke. Her swim of 35.26 set a new Haitian Record.
New Haitian Records were set by Laila Michel in the 200m Butterfly (2:41.37).
Alexandre Grand’Pierre in the 200m IM (2:19.00), 50m breaststroke (31.89) and the 100m breaststroke (1:07.57).
and Emilie Grand’Pierre in the 200m IM (2:35.07) and 100m breaststroke (1:18.10).
Congratulations to our Athletes for proudly representing our Flag! Thank you so much to CARIBBEAN APPAREL for providing the team uniforms and to individual contributors for Supporting Our Movement!
