Danielle Boothe is one of Cayman’s best teenage swimmers and that was shown when she swam for Jamaica last week.
Boothe captured six of Jamaica’s 20 medals at the Caribbean Islands Swimming Championships in Barbados.
She took home four silver and two bronze to lead Jamaica’s successful 12-member team medal tally of four gold, nine silver and seven bronze medals.
Boothe, 18, got her medals in the 200-meter backstroke (2 minutes 27.21 seconds), as well as the 200m and 400m individual medley in 2:26:88 and 5:15:88 minutes, respectively. She then clocked 31.48 seconds for bronze in the 50m backstroke, followed by 1:08:54 and 1:05:59 minutes for bronze in the 100m backstroke and butterfly events.
Boothe’s outstanding performances saw her winning the high point trophy for her age group after she tallied 48 points and made ‘B’ cut times in more than four events, which qualified her for the 2015 Pan Am Games. She now wants to reach ‘A’ standard times.
