NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Marvin Johnson is coming home from Trinidad and Tobago with some hardware.

The reigning CARIFTA champ won silver in the men’s 50m freestyle at the Commonwealth Games in a time of 22.54 seconds, less than two-tenths of a second behind Nikolai Blackman of the host country, who he competed with at CARIFTA.

Headed into his junior year at the McCallie School in Chattanooga, Johnson is the top swimmer in the state.

We had the chance to catch up with Sports Minister Mario Bowleg. He spoke about the addition of Eric Gordon to the national basketball team and the track team’s upcoming trip to Budapest.

That’s Sports Minister Mario Bowleg talking about the lengthy process undertaken to get Eric Gordon released from USA basketball and eligible to play for Team Bahamas. Bowleg was a coach for the national basketball team for almost two decades before he became sports minister so he’s intimately familiar with lengthy process that it took to release these players.

He also talked about the track team’s upcoming trip to the world athletics championships in Budapest, Hungary.
