Tough going for Jamaicans at World Junior Swimming Champs

Zaneta Alvaranga was Jamaica's best placed competitor on day three of the World Junior Swimming Championships in Budapest, Hungary as no Jamaican advanced from the heats of their event on Thursday. Alvaranga ended third in the women's 100 metre breaststroke in 1minute, 17.60 seconds but her time was only good enough for 49th overall of 67 competitors.

Sabrina Lyn ended 54th overall in 1min 18.45 seconds after finishing 9th in her heat. Kyle Sinclair touched the wall 4th in heat three of the men's 50m backstroke in 28.77 seconds, while Nathaniel Thomas posted 27.80 seconds for seventh in his section.

Alvaranga and Emily McDonald with times of 28.05 and 29.44 seconds respectively, did not make progress from the heats of the women's 50m butterfly. The team of Nicholas Vale, Kyle Sinclair, Emily McDonald and Gabrianna Banks posted 3minutes, 47.04 seconds to end 5th in heat one of the mixed 4x100m freestyle relay. Six Jamaicans will be in action on Friday’s fourth day.
