Commonwealth Game: Cayman swimmers secure best times

Cayman Islands swimmers hit the pool inside the Sandwell Aquatics Centre for day two of the Commonwealth Games, where they bagged a couple of wins and personal best times.

“I think it was a great experience for our swimmers this morning,” coach David Pursley said. “We actually had two heat wins, which is always fun to see.”

Those two wins came from James Allison and Sierrah Broadbelt.┬áThe pair of athletes who are teammates under ‘Seven Mile Swimmers’ outclassed their competitors from start to finish.

Broadbelt, 13, finished her 50 metre freestyle heat in a time of 28.13 seconds.

“My two main goals for this meet, was to PB and to win my heat, which I both did.”

Kyra Rabess readies up for heat six of the 50m free.

Allison, 16, registered a PB of his own during his heat – clocking 1:54.14 in the 200m free.

Kyra Rabess, 17, would close day two for Cayman at the Birmingham Games, with a fourth-place performance in the 50m free, which she finished at 27.29.

Allison will compete in the 100m free on Sunday, 31 July at 5:55am Cayman time.
