Bovell Leads TT Worlds Team
2004 Athens Olympic Medallist George Bovell III will lead a team of three athletes to the FINA World Long Course Championships in Shanghai China from July 16th - 30th.
Joshua Mc Leod and Cherelle Thompson were the two other athletes ratified by the council of Amateur Swimming Association of Trinidad and Tobago (ASATT) to represent the country at these biennial games. The team is being coached by Joseph Mc Leod.
This is the first time FINA has introduced qualifying times for the games. Bovell III has achieved the qualifying time set out. Mc Leod and Thompson were selected based on their FINA point ranking as FINA universality rules allow nations a maximum of three swimmers where a country may have 0 - 2 athletes achieving the qualifying times.
