Leading the medal charge was Zaneta Alvaranga in the girls 11-12 50 metre butterfly. After expressing disappointment with her start in the morning heats when she clocked a national record time of 29.74. She had no such problems in the Championship final of the event yesterday.

That bettered the old Championship record of 29.09 .Guadeloupe’s Naele Portecop. That is the first Games record of the Championships for Team Jamaica and was the 3rd age group record for the squad. Putting her record swim in context it would have just missed out on the Gold medal in the older 13-14 age group as Trinidad and Tobago’s Gabrielle Donahue won the event in in 29.02.The last time Jamaica won Gold in this event was in 2009 when Danielle Boothe topped the field.
The next Gold medal to be garnered was by the 15-17 Girls 400 medley relay team that took the senior girls title in a time of 4:30.62.That accounted for the 4th age group record of the Games. The team of Shaun Johnson, Bryanna Renuart ,Angara Sinclair and Annabella Lyn lowed the old national standard of another powerful quartet of Danielle Boothe , Breanna Roman, Zara Bailey and Ivanna Chang of 4:30.65 . That team won the Gold in the event at the Kingston Championships in 2013 the last time Jamaica won the event.
The 13-14 boys quartet of Kyle Sinclair, Cameron Brown ,Dominic Mullings and Akeem Alleyne stroked their way to the Silver in the 400 metre medley relay .They had a total time of 4:17.12.That is the first Silver medal won by Jamaica in the event since 2011.
