Shaune Fraser stepped into the spotlight of the 2005 Montreal World Swim Championships and produced dramatic results. Still developing at just 17 years-old, he lowered his personal best times by several seconds and set three Cayman Islands National Records.
In each of the five events Fraser swam, he finished in the top third of each field. In each event he was approximately just one to two seconds off a time that would have advanced him to the semi-finals and a place in the world’s best 16 swimmers.
Combined with his strong showing at the prestigious Janet Evans Invitational Meet one week prior in Los Angeles, Shaune has set a total of five new Cayman Islands national records. His times in both the 200m butterfly in Montreal and the 200IM at Janet Evans place him in the Top 100 Times set worldwide in 2005.
