The Young Ones Take A LIME 800M Open Water Swim

The Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association (CIASA) held its annual LIME 800M Open Water Sea Swim on Grand Cayman Island this weekend where 112 swimmers gathered under great conditions.

A group of young Camana Bay Aquatic Club swimmers under the guidance of coach Katie Lambert made their first appearance for the competition.

Katie led 22 children, all twelve-years-old and under, including her four-year-old son Lachlin to complete the swim – some for the first time.

We had swimmers ranging in age from 4-12 years old swim today and all finished. I am so proud of them and that they all wanted to do it and never gave up! To see them smile when they finished knowing that they just swam the whole race because they belived that they could, was amazing. These kids are where it all starts and I know they will do great things. They all work so hard in swimming and today was their moment! I was a proud mom and coach today.”
