Three Dorado Speed Swim Club members, Soroya Simmons, Daniel Scott and Alex Winter, took on the challenge of battling the tough waters at the Maracas Bay Open Water Classic in Trinidad and Tobago earlier today (Sunday) and produced good performances.
Simmons, who is a National swimmer, was the best of the lot as she placed fourth (10th overall) in female 5K in a time of one hour, twenty-two minutes and two seconds (1:22.02).
16 year-old Scott finished ninth in male 2,650 K in a time of thirty-eight minutes and twenty-nine seconds ( 38.29) while a time of forty-one minutes and forty-five seconds (41.45) allowed the 15 year-old Winter to finish in eighteenth position.
Over 270 swimmers participated in the event and meets of this nature are being used by Guyana to develop swimmers who can possibly compete in the event at Olympic Games.
Only last Sunday, the aforementioned trio took home medals after a strong showing in the Sawaki Bartica-to-Riversview Open Water meet.
