Shirley's gold!

Jamaica's five-member female team had a decent start to their UANA Swimming Cup campaign, landing one gold and a silver courtesy of Christanya Shirley and Zaneta Alvaranga on the opening day of action in Lima, Peru, yesterday.

The Malta-sponsored Jamaican team, which is one of, if not the smallest of the 25 countries gracing the South American nation, paraded their sprinting prowess with guts and determination as they sent out a warning that they are not to be ignored at the three-day event, which is the first international swim meet of 2020 season.

With 18 individual events being contested on the day, the Jamaicans were slightly slow off the blocks in the 200-metre Individual Medley (IM) at Videna Aquatic Complex.

Five-member female swim team ready for UANA Cup

Their preparation phase for the second UANA Swimming Cup is now winding down and Jamaica's swimmers are hitting game mode, as they seek to deliver top performances at the February 21-23 event in Lima, Peru.

The swimmers, who have been preparing since late last year, upped the ante over the past few weeks under the direction of their respective coaches, bracing for advanced competition in the South American nation.

It will be an all-female five-member team on show for Jamaica at Videna Aquatic Complex, as the other 13 swimmers who were ratified by the Aquatic Sports Association of Jamaica (ASAJ) will not make the trip due to injury and other reasons.
