The CISC’s are held bi-annually, but this year’s competition is particularly important because it is the last Olympic qualifier before the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

This past March, Team Bahamas finished with an impressive second place performance, in CARIFTA Swimming, and they are looking to put on another strong performance, this weekend.
