As big named athletes enter the Commonwealth Village amidst much ceremony, the swimmers of Team St. Vincent and the Grenadines are poised to make history as they take to the pool on Thursday 24 July 2014 with Shne "Izzy" Joachim, breaking the waves in Heat 3 of the Women's 50 meter Breaststroke.
A seven member OECS squad consisting of four Vincentians Kai Bentick, Jason Doyle, Thandi Myers and Deiriai Myers competed in individuals and Team events in the recently concluded XXXII Junior Caribbean Squash Championship (CASA) held in Bermuda for the 12th -19th of July, 2014.
35 swimmers took part in the SVG General Services 8 and Under Swim Championships organized by the Blue Marlins Swim Club. The event was held at the Shrewsbury pool, home of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Swimming Association.
Junior Female Athlete of the Year 2013, Shne Joachim, swam her way further into the record books when she smashed the Barbadian national record in the 50m Breast Stroke event and almost broke that country’s national record for the 100m by 0.75 seconds.
