SVG’s very own Caribbean Champion Shne’ Joachim took her experience to the world Championships, swimming personal best times in every event and finishing a respectable 37th out of over 80 swimmers entered in the 50m Breaststroke.
Shne’ swam a time of 32.43 seconds, setting a new national record that will be very hard to beat.
Shne Joachim, Cruz Halbich and Aaron Defreitas recently returned to St Vincent after spending five days competing at the 13th FINA World Swimming Championships in Windsor, Canada.
This was Halbich and Defreitas’ first time competing at this level and both young men represented St Vincent and the Grenadines well, swimming personal best times in their events.
Over 1,000 of the worlds, best swimmers from more than 170 countries attended the championships, held in December 2016.
