The Dolphin Swim Club and Team Orca Swimming recently fused their competitive swimming groups to form Lightning Aquatics. The team, supported by Consolidated Water (Bahamas) Limited (CWCO), made its debut at the 49th National Swimming Championships and struck gold, bronze, and silver medals.
CWCO representatives Mr. Jeffery Burrows and Mrs. Welliya Cargill presented a cheque to Lightning Aquatics coaches and President Allison Dean, who expressed thanks for the much-needed donation.
The reverse osmosis water supplier’s donation helped defray costs and to purchase the swim equipment necessary for participation in the National Swimming Championships. Lightning Aquatics won gold in the 11-12 boys 200 Metre Free Relay and the team’s members Donald Saunders, Shawn Neely, and Orion Moss medaled gold, bronze, and silver in the 11-12 Boys 100 Metre Fly, 18 and over 100 Metre Fly, and 11-12 Boys 100 Metre Back respectively.
