Delron will compete in three (3) events – the 50-meter freestyle, 100-meter freestyle and 50 meter butterfly.

The swimmer who is already a Carifta and CCCAN medalist hopes to add to his medal count at the Commonwealth Youth Games which runs from July 19-23.

Meanwhile, a five (5) member team also left Grenada Thursday for Budapest, Hungary to participate in the Fina World Championships.

The team – Corey Ollivierre, Kerry Ollivierre and Oreoluwa Cherebin – is accompanied by coach Gerson Escobar and Team Manager Nigel Ollivierre.

Both Cherebin and Ollivierre represented Grenada at the 2016 Olympic Games, as well as the recent Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Federation (CCCAN) annual meet in Trinidad.

Oreoluwa Cherebin and Corey Ollivierre will be competing in the 50 meter and 100 meter breast while Kerry Ollivierre will swim the 50 meter and 100 meter freestyle races.

All three swimmers competing at the FINA Worlds in Hungry were former medalist at the CCCAN and /or the Carifta Swimming Championships.

Local swimmers continue to proudly represent Grenada in swimming regionally and internationally, in spite of the limited facilities available to them.

Recently 12-year-old Kimberly Ince was the winner of 2 bronze and one silver medal at the recently concluded Central American & Caribbean Amateur Swimming Association Games (CCCAN) held in Trinidad in July.
