GRATEFUL FOR CHANCE: Trinidad and Tobago swimmer Dylan Carter.

Top Trinidad and Tobago swimmer Dylan Carter placed seventh in the Men’s 50m freestyle at the International Swimming League (ISL) 2020 Match number three that splashed off at the Duna Arena in Budapest, Hungary yesterday.

The ISL 2020 is being conducted in a bio-secure bubble and is being broadcast to 140 countries worldwide.

Carter posted a new personal best of 21.42 seconds for the two-lap event in a competition that is conducted exclusively on a 25-metre course. At the opening match last weekend, the 2018 Commonwealth Games silver medallist posted 21.56.

The race was won by Russian Vladimir Morozov in a fast 20.98 seconds, the only man to dip under 21 seconds. Carter’s Los Angeles Currents’ (LAC) teammate Kristian Gkolomeev (21.04) claimed the silver while Aqua Centurions’ (AC) Szebasztian Szabo taking bronze in 21.19.

Tokyo Frog Kings’ Bruno Fratus was fourth (21.21), AC’s Alexssandro Miressi was fifth (21.38), with Toronto Titans’ (TT) Blake Pieroni sixth in 21.41, Carter seventh and Michael Chadwick of TT taking eighth in 21.66.

Carter and Gkolomeev helped LAC to a first day-lead for the two-day match, the California-based team accumulating 262.5 points ahead of Tokyo Frog Kings (248.5), TT (208.5) and AC (156.5).

Carter also led off the ‘B” team for the LAC in the Men’s 4 x 100m freestyle relay, clocking a 47.55 seconds for tha first leg as the LAC eventually placed sixth in 3 minutes 10.66 seconds.

The event was won by AC in 3:04.93 followed by LAC “A” (3:05.67) and TT (3:07.00).


WEST INDIES middle-order batsman Darren Bravo said spending time in the middle will be central to him earning big runs for the upcoming two-Test series against New Zealand.

The Windies number three featured in a third-wicket stand of 122 with Shamarh Brooks in their warm-up match on tour, against a New Zealand ‘A’ team at Queenstown over the weekend, scoring a majestic 135 (from 214 balls) which included 13 fours and five sixes. The match ended in a predictable draw.

TEAM TTO standout swimmer Dylan Carter finished fourth in the men’s 100m backstroke on the final day of the International Swimming League (ISL) 2020, as his Los Angeles Current (LAC) squad finished fourth (298 pts).

West Indies got an early sight of the depth of the batting that New Zealand may be able to call upon during their two-Test series next month, before they drew their warm-up match against the Black Caps’ reserves yesterday.

SEVEN suspended Trinidad and Tobago Super League (TTSL) football clubs have written the league’s general secretary, Peter Thomas, seeking reinstation in time to vote at the TTSL proposed AGM.

Super League vice-president, Jameson Rigues, and UTT representative, Clayton Morris, are both vying to assume the position of president, following the October 17, resignation of Keith Look Loy.

Injured West Indies Women’s captain Stafanie Taylor was a non-starter and fellow Windies Women’s all-rounder Hayley Matthews made a minor contribution in the final round of preliminary matches in the Women’s Big Bash League yesterday.
