Two years ago, Brett and Shaune Fraser made waves in Mexico at the Pan-American Games.
The Fraser brothers went 1-2 on the podium for the 200 metres freestyle, with Brett, 23, setting a new Pan-Am record in the process. On Tuesday, Cayman’s Olympic heroes struck again in Bermuda, finishing 1-2 in the 100m butterfly at the 2013 Island Games.
Shaune, 25, grabbed gold in 51.06 seconds to set a new Island Games record. Brett nabbed silver in a time of 51.56 seconds.
For the Frasers, the 100m fly produced their third medals in Bermuda. On Monday, the brothers were part of the 4 x 50m medley relay team that claimed bronze. Then on Tuesday, they were part of the 4 x 50m free relay that earned silver. The other team members were Alex McCallum and Geoffrey Butler.
The Frasers have already set two other Island Games records in Bermuda. Brett completed the 50m fly in 24.09 seconds while Shaune swam the 100m free in 49.68 seconds.
In addition to the Frasers, Lara Butler has kept swimming at the forefront of Cayman’s medal hunt by taking gold in the 100m backstroke in 1.03.36 on Tuesday. She would later grab bronze in the women’s 200m individual medley in 2.20.15.
Aside from swimming, other sports have been producing medallists. On Tuesday, squash produced three gold medals as Marlene West and Mark Chaloner teamed up to win the mixed doubles title, the women’s doubles team of West and Jaclyn Geils triumphed and the male pairing of Cameron Stafford and Chaloner won the men’s doubles.
In athletics, Amelia Gillespie ran to gold in the 100m hurdles in 14.69 seconds.
Heading into Wednesday, Cayman were ranked sixth in the medal tally with eight gold, six silver and four bronze.
