CURACAO – Team Bahamas rocking and rolling in the pool over in Curaçao, here’s an update on their performance as well as the current standings and medal count.

Team Bahamas came into the 2023 CARIFTA games fully expecting to dominate, and judging by their performance so far, they may have underrated themselves. 

The squad began the day first in the points count with 546 points. The 2nd best team with 383 points, Cayman. 

The Bahamas also leads the medal count with 41 in total: 18 gold, 11 silver and 12 bronze medals. 

Saleste Gibson had herself a day,  winning the 200-meter freestyle, and the 50-meter butterfly and she was a part of the gold medal-winning 400 meter relay medley team, all in the girls 11-12 division. 

Christon Joseph also grabbed himself a couple of golds on the day, winning the boys’ 11-12 50-meter butterfly and being on the team that won the 11-12 relay 400 medley. 

He said he and his teammates put in hard work to get to the podium, after his relay win.

The tournament is far from over and our swimmers will be competing until Monday morning.

Look for our medal count and point lead to continue to grow.
