Errol Clarke of Barbados was elected President of CCCAN from among a slate of candidates which included The President of the Mexican Swimming Federation, who subsequently withdrew his candidature in support of Errol, and the Chairman of the CCCAN Diving Committee. Errol; as his attached curriculum vitae indicates; brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the post.
Mr. Clarke has created history as an Official and Administrator of Aquatic sports:
- He is the first person from the English speaking Caribbean to be a Member of the FINA Technical Swimming Committee.
- The first Official from the English speaking Caribbean to Referee in swimming at an Olympic competition.
- The first person from the English speaking Caribbean to be elected President of CCCAN in its 63 year history.
- The first Administrator in swimming from the English speaking Caribbean to be recognised by FINA for his contribution to Aquatic Sports.
The Barbados Amateur Swimming Association extends warm congratulations and joins with his many well wishers around the Globe to wish him a productive and successful tenure.
We also congratulate the newly elected members of the CCCAN Executive Team.
