Grenada has strong team for OECS Swim Meet!

Grenada will be hosting the 19th O.E.C.S Swim Championship from the 6th-8th November 2009 at the Good Hope Pool, St. Paul’s St. Georges.The Grenada Amateur and Swimming Association (G.A.S.A) is quite excited to be entering a 34 member strong National Team.

Last Year saw Grenada travelling to the Meet in St. Lucia and retaining the trophy for the third  consecutive year. The Association and Swimmers look forward to a record breaking and victorious meet this year in front of a home crowd.

National Head Coach Miss Nataly Regis, feels that Grenada has a very strong team with experienced swimmers some of whom participated in the Commonwealth Swimming Championship in August 2009.  Some of the more senior and experienced swimmers are Omar Hughes, Esau Simpson, Sophia Noel, Ayesha Noel, Julia Bisschops, Claire Morall, Chris Regis and Locksley Williams.

Up and coming swimmers to look out for are Andrew Hopkin,  Kahlil John, Chinwe Oluonye, Kevlian Andrews, Oreoluwa Cherebin, Correy Ollivierre, Kerry Ollivierre, Justin Steele, Gabrielle Paparo, Kattie Lillie and Marco Bagnasco among many others.

Our Team has been training non-stop morning and evenings for up to six days a week with the head Coach Nataly Regis and ably assisted by Assistant Coach Mr. Carlton Simon who has been a tremendous benefit to the Team. The Association has high expectations for this meet and  hopes to retain the age group trophies currently held and win a few more. It is also hoped that the team goes on to be declared O.E.C.S Champions for the 4th consecutive year.

The last few years has seen  Grenada and St. Lucia battling fiercely for the title, but Antigua has sent a strong warning, they have travelled far, trained hard and they will not be going home empty handed! The Swim meet is a guaranteed to be competitive and exciting and G.A.S.A is appealing to the general public to come out and support our Swimmers. Go Grenada! G.A.S.A wishes  to thank the OECS official meet sponsor Sagicor for once again coming through to make this Meet a reality and  to the team the very best!
