Castries, Saint Lucia: The Ministry of Youth Development and Sports of Saint Lucia has shared an update on various matches, games and activities that have been held in the last week. 

Saint Lucia earned it’s first medal at the Caribbean Games last night, as swimmer Mikhaili Charlemagne won a bronze medal in the Women’s 50m free in a time of 27.30. Naima Hazell came in 8th in the same event.

Much confusion before the final results were posted today, as the pool only has 6 lanes, so they had two finals, and then based the overall results on times. Mikhaili won the second final, but Aruban and Jamaican swimmers had faster times in the first final.

Mikhaili has been in the first final with the faster swimmers, and done her PB of 26.99, she would have come second, as the Jamaican girl, who came second in the first final, had a time of 27.17.

Looking forward to more medals tonight.

Due to heavy overnight rain and current weather conditions, the MYDS 40-OVERS U-15 cricket games scheduled for today Friday 1st July cannot be played. These matchups will now take place on Monday 4th July 2022, weather permitting; the venues and starting times remain the same.
