HOUSTON, TEXAS – Team Bahamas wrapped up an intense week of training camp before they head to Europe for international friendlies.

We were able to catch up with Eric Gordon, who said it will take a collective effort for The Bahamas to be able to qualify for the Olympics.

Gordon was the hero from the pre-qualifier in Argentina last year

While at training camp, Gordon said he was also impressed at the level of talent, saying that the future of Bahamas basketball is bright.

That’s it in Houston, next stop – Athens, Greece for the Acropolis Aegan Tournament.

Swimming

Mako Aquatics got off to a fast start on their chase for a sixth consecutive bahamas aquatics national title.

Mako totaled 629 points, Barracuda Swim Club was second with 369 points, Alpha Aquatics was in third with 283 points, Blue Waves Swim Club is fourth with 244 points and Black Marlins rounded out the top five with 140 points.

Bahamas Aquatics Federation President Algernon Cargill said the influx of international athletes and the competitive nature of the local clubs will make this the biggest edition of the national championships to date.

The meet continues through Sunday at the Betty Kelly Kenning Aquatics Center, beginning each day at 9am and the evening sessions beginning at 6pm.

Basketball

Basketball Smiles is celebrating its 25th year of using the sport to positively impact the lives of young Bahamians.

The Texas-based philanthropic organization concluded its camp this week and hosted scores of aspiring players at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.

Sam Nichols, president of Basketball Smiles said the growth over the last two decades has been mutually beneficial to the campers over the years and his visiting coaches.

Legendary local basketball basketball icon Patty Johnson met Nichols through a chance encounter at a coaches symposium and the relationship with the bahamas was forged.

Since 1999 more than 12,000 boys and girls have participated in Basketball Smiles.

Campers receive a t-shirt, a school backpack, a bible, and their own basketball at the end of the week.
