2021 CCCAN Championships Awarded To Puerto Rico

By Sharon Robb
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, May 2, 2021–The Puerto Rican Swimming Federation will host the June 23-27 Central American and Caribbean Swimming Championships.

The event was originally set to be hosted by Panama, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic withdrew.

The meet will be held at the San Juan Aquatic Complex that features a 50-meter Olympic-sized pool and separate diving well.

The pool also features a movable floor which makes it possible to vary the water depth from 3-meter deep to zero. The state-of-the-art facility includes a stainless gutter system that maintains the pool water at rim flow at all times thus contributing to a ‘fast’ pool.

The facility can accommodate up to 2,000 spectators but is expected to observe COVID-19 guidelines for fewer spectators and mandatory masks.

Only swimming and open water swimming will be held. Water polo and synchronized swimming are not on this year’s program.

The competition venue for swimming is Natatorio de San Juan and open water swimming Laguna Del Condado.

The Puerto Rican Swimming Federation will oversee the event with help from CCCAN officials. The CCCAN Championships are held every odd year and began in 1960.
