Juniors take heart despite failing to progress at FINA World Junior Swimming Championships
Despite failing to progress from the preliminary rounds so far, Jamaica's young swimmers continue to take heart from their performances at the FINA World Junior Swimming Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
Jamaica's presence at the event this year is one of historic significance, as it marks the first time that the country is being represented by more than two swimmers at this championship. It is also the first time that the country has fielded a male and female relay team at any global meet.
The Wendy Lee-coached eight-member swimmers have been holding their own against more established swimmers and by all indications have taken crucial lessons from the outing as part of their continued growth and development.
With Emily MacDonald, Sabrina Lyn and Kyle Sinclair being out of competition on yesterday's fourth day of action, the other members — Cameron Brown, Zaneta Alvaranga, Nathaniel Thomas, Gabrianna Banks and Nicholas Vale — took to the pool inside Duna Arena, where they again made a splash in their own right.
