Moscow to seal aquatic issues

Two of the most respected swimming coaches in the Cayman Islnads are at an important convention in Russia this week.

Cayman Islands Amateur Swimming Association’s technical director, coach Ian Armiger and coach Katie Lambert, Camana Bay Aquatic Club’s head coach, are representing the Cayman Islands at the FINA World Aquatics Convention in Moscow. It started on Monday and runs until Thursday.

The convention opened with a two day World Coaches Clinic which features presentations from coaches whose swimmers struck gold at the London 2012 Olympics including: Roman Barnier (France) coach to 50 metre freestyle champion Florent Manadou, Graham Hill (South Africa) who guided Chad le Clos to victory over Michael Phelps in the 200m butterfly, Todd Schmitz (USA), coach to Missy Franklin and Xu Guoyi (China) who prepared Shiwen yi for her onslaught of the 400m individual medley world record.

Armiger said: “To interact with many of the world’s leading coaches in such an environment is a superb opportunity. Our attendance also helps promote Cayman Swimming and put us firmly on the aquatics map.”

The convention culminates with presentations on aquatic developments and an exhibition of the latest equipment for swimming and swimming pools.

As Cayman Islands delegates the attendance of Armiger and Lambert is fully supported under FINA’s Development Programme.
