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.
