Grenada National Swim Team  Repesents At The Goodwill Swim Meet

Grenada’s National Swim team was represented at the XXIII edition of the Goodwill Swim Meet from August 18-20 at the National Aquatic Centre, Liliendaal Guyana. 

Swimmers of the 8-member team departed Grenada on August 17th to participate in the competition for the first time since 2009. The Goodwill meet is one of the premier developmental swim meets in the region in preparation for higher levels of competition such as the CARIFTA, CCCAN and OECS swim meets. Each year Goodwill invites 1-2 additional teams and Grenada was invited to participate after 8 years of absence. 

The team which represented Grenada comprised of Jonathan Bedeau in the 8 and under boys category, Jalena Coutain & Joshua Wilson-Dumont in the 9-10 girls & boys respectively, KaiyaRamdhanny, Jaydon Hyson &Jovanni John in the 13-14 girls & boys respectively and Christian Phillip and Bradley Gresham in the 15- 17 boys. Team members competed in 6 to 10 races daily, all swimmers achieved personal best times in the majority of their races. Jalena Coutain & Jonathan Bedeau successfully shaved as much as 10 seconds off their race times during this competition. 

At the conclusion of the 2017 Goodwill games Grenada successfully lobbied for Goodwill membership, which was unanimously accepted by the member countries. The Bahamas as the second invited country was also accepted into membership. As a member, Grenada is now expected to host the Games in the next 5 years, which will require a minimum 8-lane 25-meter aquatic facility. The Grenada National Amateur Swimming Association looks forward to hosting the meet in the new home of swimming which we the organization is assiduously working toward.
