Cayman's Island Games proud record holders

Athletes from the Cayman Islands have been in the Island Games record books since 1999.

The Games began in 1985 and a few of the early marks still stand.

The four women of Cayman’s 100-meter relay team in 1999 still hold the record for the fastest time in their track event: 47.60 seconds. In the eight Games since, no women’s team has beaten the combination of Crystal Robinson, Schwannah McCarthy, Calicia Burke and Cydonie Mothersill.

Since then, records in 12 other events have been set by Cayman participants in swimming, track and field.

In 2007, Mothersill set the 200m record in 23.27 seconds, and in 2011, Carl Morgan set the triple jump record in 15.68m.

Eight records were set by Cayman athletes in 2013. These include Alexander Pascal, who set the javelin record at 70.66m; Shaune Fraser, who completed the 100m butterfly in 51.06 seconds; Brett Fraser, who finished the 100m freestyle in 47.65 seconds; the team of Alexander McCallum, Brett Fraser, Geoffrey Butler and Shaune Fraser, who won the 4x100m freestyle relay in 3 minutes, 20:65 seconds; Brett Fraser, who set the 50m butterfly record of 23.26 seconds; Brett Fraser again, this time setting the 50m freestyle in a time of 21.73 seconds; Lara Butler, who won the 200m butterfly in 2 minutes, 16.45 seconds; and the team of Rhymiech Adolphus, David Hamil, Carl Morgan and Carlos Morgan, who completed the 4x100m men’s relay in 41.10 seconds.

In the most recent Island Games in Jersey, Ronald Forbes set the men’s 110m hurdles record with a time of 13.62 seconds, and Shaune Fraser finished the 100m individual medley in a record-breaking 54.42 seconds.

The 2015 marks are not yet included in the International Island Games Association’s history of records.
