Trinidad and Tobago Olympian Dylan Carter has been named 2018 Central American and Caribbean (CAC) athlete of the year.

The 21-year-old phenom, who recently lowered the countries 100m backstroke record, has had a phenomenal year in the pool.  In a standout performance at the 2018 Central American & Caribbean Games, Carter claimed three gold medals.

He won the 100m freestyle (48.95), 50m backstroke (24.83), and 50 fly (23.11), all of which came in new meet records, and the latter two of which were new national bests.

As the region’s only swimmer male at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia, Carter also managed to again make his mark after claiming a silver medal in the 50m fly.  Jamaican Alia Atkinson was the other regional attendee and she claimed silver in the 50m breast.

A strong performance would continue for the Trinidad and Tobago native who then participated in2018 World Short Course Swimming Championships, where he won a bronze.  The medal was the country’s second-ever medal at the meet after George Bovell’s bronze in the 100im at the 2012 championships.
