The Dolphin Swim Club has continued to work for the betterment of swimmers in The Bahamas. History shows that over the next 16 years the Dolphins brought in not only the Jamaica Y.M.C.A team, but the Sheeler Winton Swim Club, the South Miami Dade Stingrays, The Aztec and St. Andrews Swim Team out of Boca Raton, The Blue Dolphins from Trinidad and the Etobicoe Swim Team from Canada.
Dolphin Swimmers have competed in competitions the world over. Four of our swimmers, Bruce Knowles, David Morley, Garvin Ferguson and Timothy Eneas have competed in the Olympic Games while many others including Charles Smith Jr., David Morley, Tietchka Knowles and Geoffrey and Timothy Eneas have achieved ‘All American’ swimming times while competing in the United States.
Regionally, Dolphin swimmers continue to etch their names in Bahamas swimming history with Timothy Eneas being awarded the first Gold Medal in swimming at the 1986 Carifta Games and recently with Travano Mcphee clocking the fastest start at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, England. Other firsts on the Dolphin record were a 24 hour swim-a-thon, and a relay swim-a-thon completely around Paradise Island.
One of the objects for which the Club was formed, as expressed in its constitution, was “to encourage and promote amateur swimming in The Bahamas.” The many accomplishments of the Dolphins and its swimmers over the past 30 years are too numerous to recount but through the Club’s reputation it is clear that the Club has lived up to it to its goals and has been a successful sporting organization at every level.
In addition to the success of the Club in the swimming arena, the Dolphin Swimming Club is particularly proud of the success its members have enjoyed outside of the sport of swimming. Many Dolphin swimmers are now in leadership positions in the social fabric of The Bahamas and there is no doubt that the discipline of training and competitive involvement has stood them well in life after competitive swimming.
