Evans continues strong CAC run

Joanna Evans.

Joanna Evans picked up her fourth medal of the 2018 Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games on Monday night. This one came in the finale of the women’s 400-metre (m) individual medley.

Evans touched the wall second in 4:50.38, behind only Elena Romano, from Puerto Rico, who won the race in 4:46.31. Mexican Monika Gonzalez finished third overall in 4:52.13.

Evans has won two golds and two silvers so far at the games in Barranquilla, Colombia.

“It is kind of fun to be able to swim in a different race for a change, just like when I swam in the 100,” Evans said following the race.

“It’s just fun to be competitive. You have to work every stroke like it’s the last thinking you’re swimming and I know my freestyle is good enough to keep me competitive.”

Evans picked up the country’s first medal at the games with a gold in the women’s 400 freestyle. She followed that up with a gold in the 200 freestyle and a silver in the 100 free.
