The Grenada Amateur Swimming Association welcomes home Olympians, Delron Felix and Kimberly Ince. The two swimmers proudly represented Grenada earlier this week at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. They returned with their coach, Nataly Regis Sihera on Thursday evening.
In her event, the 100m backstroke, Kimberly placed third in her heats with a time of 1:10. 24, while Delron gave a stellar performance in his heat, in the 100m freestyle, maintaining the lead against his competitors for most of the race and only edged out towards the end to third position, in a time of 52.99 seconds.
The performance of the two swimmers is an indicator of the great potential of our swim athletes. GASA feels that there is much hope in both swimmers’ performance which qualifies the dire need for a competitive sized aquatic facility in order to better equip our athletes for international competitions.
In keeping with the COVID-19 protocols a small group of family members, GASA executives, and Grenfin executives gathered for a drive by welcome of the athletes and coach outside the Maurice Bishop International Airport. Andrea Felix, mother of Delron received 3 fruit gift baskets sponsored by the MNIB on behalf of the returning delegation.
