ST ANDREW, Kingston, Jamaica- While the track and field athletes from the Virgin Islands were only able to pick up a bronze medal at the 47th Flow Carifta Games in The Bahamas over the Easter weekend, swimmer Elinah Phillip has managed to pick up two silver medals at the ongoing Carifta Swimming Championships in Jamaica.

The teenaged swimming sensation won a silver medal in the 50m Butterfly in 28.29 seconds and then returned to the pool to take another silver in the girls 15 to 17 years 100m freestyle with a time of 58.98 seconds.

Elinah will now seek to qualify for the finals in the 50m freestyle tomorrow morning, April 4, 2018 and once qualified she will try to complete her 2018 Carifta swimming championships campaign with a third podium appearance.

The Virgin Islander, who lives and trains in England, had the distinction of being the youngest athlete from the Virgin Islands to compete in the Olympic Games when she took to the pool in Rio in 2016.

    Well done, young lady..continue to excell in what you do. Maybe there's not many persons reading this article, but I would have expected to see more congratulatory remarks from those who are in the youth department of sports, and other such, but I guess there are reasons unknown...but never mind, when God is for you, no one can be against you. Keep up the good works, and always remember to put God first in your life.
