Day 1- November 10th Thursday
Attached are the results of the first Day of the OECS Swimming Champs 2016. A great effort by the swimmers especially considering the conditions. As agreed at the Technical meeting, the results today will not count toward the overall country championship but swimmers will be awarded medals. This was in recognition of the fact that Antigua did not have most of their team here (this was no fault of their own).
The Medley Relays scheduled for this evening will be swam at the end of the day tomorrow.
There will be a short opening ceremony at some point tomorrow and we will advise the time.
The meet results are on Meet Mobile at “26th Annual OECS Swimming Championships”. Live streaming is also at:

Day 2- November 11th Friday
Attached are the results for Day 2 of Competition. Again a great effort by the swimmers and teams considering the conditions.
Weather permitting, we hope to hold a shortened opening ceremony at 10am this morning (Saturday).
The meet results are also on Meet Mobile at “26th Annual OECS Swimming Championships”.
