Trinidad and Tobago’s Dylan Carter ended ‘leg one’ of the World Aquatics ‘World Cup’ Series with two medals, after adding a silver medal from the men’s 50m butterfly earned yesterday in Berlin, Germany.
Swimming out of lane one in the finals, the 27-year-old Trinbagonian, had a close battle for the top spot, however, it was Australia’s Ben Armbruster edging the field in a time of 23.08 seconds as they approached the wall.
Nothing separated Carter from American, Michael Andrew, as the pair were both timed at 23.17 seconds for the silver medal while Hungary’s Szebasztian Szabo placed fourth in 23.25s.
On Saturday, Carter splashed to bronze in the men’s 100m freestyle – his first medal of the 2023 World Cup, after an uncharacteristically slow start saw him finish eighth in the 50m freestyle final on Friday
The World Aquatics ‘World Cup Series’ shifts to Greece (Oct 13-15) before the finale splashes off in Hungary (Oct 20-22).
