Prior to the competition he had set the Nova Southeastern and Sunshine State Conference Championships meet and overall record of 46.31 (split time 21.20) in the heats of that meet.
In the morning yesterday he made his second consecutive Championship final. Last he was 46.91 (split 21.83) in the preliminaries before placing seventh in a time of 47.01 (22.00), as per Lifespan.
In the medal race he was again looking at seventh place finish as hein that placing at the halfway mark with a split of 21.44. Then the Shark produced the best last 50 yards to almost get to the head of the field.
He recorded a split of 24.44, no one else was under 24.50. That had him winning Silver in a new PB, School and Conference record time of 46.11. The Gold was won by McKendree’s Gregg Lichinsky who had the joint fastest split of 21.13 and won 45.82.
The Lifespan stated, “The swim makes Aimable the fifth fastest swimmer of all time by a swimmer who competed at the CARIFTA Championships. Aimable holds his nation’s standards in the 100-metre butterfly in the Olympic-sized pool at 53.64 and 53.08 in the 25-metre pool. Look for Aimable to make significant time drops in the 200-yard butterfly later in the competition.”
