Bermuda’s swimmers collected another ten medals on the final night of competition at the Carifta Swimming Championships in the Bahamas last night to take the team’s haul to 39, a Carifta record for the island, with three more gold medals.

Prior to last night’s finals Bermuda had already bettered their 2016 achievement of 21 medals with 29 medals already won before yesterday’s competition at the Betty Kelly-Kenning Aquatic Centre in Nassau.

Payton Zelkin got the ball rolling with a gold in the opening final, the 11-12 girls 400 metres freestyle, which she won in 4mins 43.68 secs. Elan Daley finished seventh in the same event in 4:58.20.

However, she was soon on the podium again when she added to her medal haul with victory in the 50 metres freestyle in a time of 27.50.

Zelkin was third in that same event, taking the bronze after touching the wall in 28.66.
