(CNS): After the second day of swimming events at the NatWest Island Games in Jersey, Cayman’s athletes  have earned four more medals, bringing their two-day total to six. Shaune and Brett Fraser took gold and silver, respectively, in the men’s 100m butterfly; Lara Butler earned a bronze in the women’s 100m backstroke; and the 4x50m men’s freestyle relay team also gained a bronze.

On the first day in the pool, Shaune Fraser earned gold in the men’s 200m individual medley and Butler took silver in the women’s 400m individual medley.

Head coach Bailey Weathers, who is also technical director of the Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association, said, “We are delighted to see how well our swimmers are performing. It is great for Cayman swimming that, as the junior and senior teams strengthen, with new and younger swimmers stepping up, swimming in international events and making finals appearances, that we have Shaune and Brett on deck as their teammates, supporting and mentoring the younger swimmers. To have this depth and range of experience is great for our national swim programme.”
