Cayman to send nine athletes to Commonwealth Youth Games

Rasheem Brown, Chambria Dalhouse and John Bodden are all heading to the Bahamas.

The Cayman Islands Olympic Committee on Friday (2 June) announced a team of nine athletes to compete at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Bahamas in July. The athletes will compete in swimming, track and field, and boxing.

The swim team features John Bodden, Sarah Jackson and Jonathan Key, all members of the delegation that brought home a record medal haul from the CARIFTA Swimming Championships, which were also held in Bahamas in April.

Accompanying them will be Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association (CIASA) Technical Director Bailey Weathers, along with Daren Mew and Susan Weathers.

A pair of rising stars inside the ring will compete in boxing. Female fighter Chambria Dalhouse will make the trip along with Alexander Smith. Both fighters have shown great strides in their development over the past year under national coach Ryan Barrett, who will join them in the Bahamas.

Hurdler Rasheem Brown headlines a quartet of track and field athletes. He’s coming off an impressive showing at the Flow CARIFTA Games in Curacao in April, where he won silver in the 110m hurdles. Aijah Lewis, Claudina Morgan and Lemar Reid are the others. They will be accompanied by coaches Cydonie Mothersill and Kenrick Williams.

The Chef de Mission for the Cayman Islands team at the 19-23 July Games is Dion Brandon.
