University of Southern Califonia Trojans swimmer, T&T’s Dylan Carter will spearhead a four-member national team to the Nanjing, China, Summer Youth Olympics Games, August 16-28.


In addition to Carter, who swam his way into the history books when he earned a silver medal in the boys 50m butterfly final at the Fourth FINA World Junior Swimming Championships in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, last year in 23.98 seconds, the other swimmers recommended by ASATT to the T&T Olympic Committee are David Mcleod, Kristen Julien and Alexandria Donahue, who will officially become a Florida Gator in September.


Although the local swimming association has selected the four swimmers for the Youth Olympic teams, FINA, the world governing body for the sport, has imposed a limit to the number of swimmers at this year’s Nanjing Youth Olympics Games. So, although T&TOC is responsible for the team selection, FINA will issue invitations to the respective swimmers submitted by the Olympic Committee. 


Meanwhile, ASATT has also recommended to T&TOC, Carter and Olympic brone medal swimmer, George Bovell III represent this country at the Commonwealth Games carded for Glasgow, Scotland, July 23 - August 3.
