On the opening day of the swimming competition, Martin, 12, representing Trindad and Tobago, won three gold medals and broke a meet record in her second major international meet.

Martin won the 11-12 50-meter butterfly in 30.20 seconds. In the morning prelims she broke the CISC record with a time of 30.17.

Martin, a student at St. Andrew’s School in Boca Raton, also won the 200-meter individual medley in 2:32.20.

Martin won her final event of the evening in the 100-meter backstroke in 1:10.90.

Sharntelle McLean, who also trains at the Coral Springs Aquatic Complex with six-time Olympic coach Michael Lohberg, won the 18-and-over 50-meter butterfly in 28.72.

SOFLO’s Keegan Boisson-Yates, 14, a student at Taravella, will also compete in the meet for Trinidad and Tobago. The meet continues through July 2.  The swimmers are competing in the same Olympic pool that hosted the 1991 Pan American Games.
