Bermuda’s top young swimmers picked up two medals — one gold — on the first day of the 2013 Carifta Swimming Championships in Jamaica, with both Jesse Washington and Madelyn Moore claiming medal wins in record setting style.

Madelyn Moore, 12, swam to victory in the 11-12 girls 50m backstroke finals to claim Bermuda’s first gold medal in a time of 32.84.

13-year-old Jesse Washington won the bronze medal during the 13-14 boys 100m butterfly in a time of 1:01.17. Both swimmers set new Bermuda age group records.

National Swim Coach Ben Smith said, “The first day was very exciting to watch. Our medalists from last year Jesse Washington and Shannon Hassell have seen the challenge of moving up to the 13-14 age group. Maddie Moore looked amazing in taking her gold medal and I am very proud of her swim.”

Other Bermuda swimmers saw action including Shannon Hassell, Vanessa Esposito, Megan Lau, Ashley Irby, Ethan Daley, Alex Pilgrim, Evan Farrow, Shannon Botelho, Sophie Froud, Dejan Wellman, Emma Harvey, Josh Irvine, Alexander McCallum, Emma Franklin and Vaughn Rowse.

The swimming portion of the Carifta Games is being held in Jamaica, while the track and field segment is being held in the Bahamas. The two medals won by the swimmers add to the two medals won by the track and field athletes, giving Bermuda four medals on the first day of the combined Carifta competition.
