The 2017 CCCAN Championships got underway at the National Aquatic Centre in Trinidad and Tobago yesterday June 28 with Jamaica having one competitor in action. Britney Williams was the first swimmer to compete as she swam in the 800 metre freestyle in the 15-17 age group.

In her debut at the CCCAN Championships Williams swam against a high quality field to register a new personal best time of 9:35.59 and place fifth. That lowered her previous best by more than two seconds. The Gold medal in the event went to Valerie Gruest in 8:40.30 a new Championship record and World Championship B qualifying time.
