Cayman’s synchronised swimming team

(CNS Local Life): Almost 200 people attended the recent Cayman Islands Aquatic Sports Association (CIASA) awards gala brunch, which recognises both swimmers and volunteers from 7 to 70 years old for their achievements and contributions to swimming. In addition to the awards, there was a silent auction and other fundraising activities during the event.

CIASA president Michael Lockwood said of the gala, “Honouring our athletes and volunteers is the most important thing that we can do as a federation. It is great to see all of the athletes be recognised for their performances and, more importantly, efforts and training. Without the volunteers and parents, our athletes would not be able to compete. It was great to see Alec Cox be named as Special Olympian of the year both by CIASA and SOCI (Special Olympics Cayman Islands)”.

Among the other awards presented were male and female swimmer of the year, Corey Frederick-Westerborg and Lauren Hew, respectively; volunteer of the year, Joan Link; and lifetime achievement award and masters swimmer of the year, Frank Flowers. Also recognised were most improved swimmers by age group; notable performers at CARIFTA 2017; and CIASA Stars, high points scorers from 25m pool events.

The gala was held 28 January at Grand Old House.
