Chief Executive Officer
Siparia Regional Corporation
Tyla Martin and Kristin Julien
have expressed excitement about
their participation in the FINA
World Junior Swimming Cham-
pionships, from August 26--31, at
the fourth edition, to be held at
the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin
Rashid Sports Complex in Dubai,
United Arab Emirates.
Martin, who lives in Boca Raton,
Florida, started representing T&T
in the second year of the 11-12 age-
group. There she took Caribbean
swimming by storm and won 11
gold medals in the 2010 Carifta
Swimming Championships in
Kingston, Jamaica. In the process
she set eight Carifta and three
national records and was the FINA
high point winner and most out-
standing 11-12 female at the meet.
From there she continued to excel
bringing glory to T&T each time she
dove into the pool. Fast track to this
year and she is still making waves
regionally. At the Carifta Swimming
Championships earlier this year, she
won five gold and two silver, with a
national record in the 200 metre but-
Born to a Trinidadian mother,
Babette, and an American father, Craig,
Martin first showed her mettle to the
T&T public at the December 2009
ASATT Invitational. Her mother always
wanted her to swim for T&T and
through conversation with now World
Juniors coach Franz Huggins, and for-
mer aquatic director Hayden Newallo,
that dream was realised.
The 16-year-old mermaid, who trains
with Pine Crest Swim Club in Florida,
is bubbling with excitement and is well
prepared for competition in Dubai.
"I am feeling excited going into the
meet. I have been preparing for months
so I am definitely ready to race. My
goals for the meet are to go personal
bests and make finals. Training was
tough. I have trained through all the
meets so it feels good to finally be taper-
ing. This meet is by far the biggest
meet I have ever qualified and I am
thrilled to be competing for T&T at
the world junior national level. This is
going to be one of the best experiences
Since August 10, Martin and Julien
have been training together at Pine
Crest before going off to Dubai on Fri-
day. Julien too is rearing to go after
months of preparation for the World
Julien has been consistent in repre-
senting T&T with an impressive track
record since the 11-12 age-group. Born
to Wayne and Beverly Julien, Kristin
has displayed a series of consistent per-
formances, which has etched her in
our national record books.
This native of San Fernando has
established national and regional records
in the 50m backstroke and 50m but-
terfly during the course of her career.
She has been the ASATT Swimmer of
the Year of her respective age-group
for the period 2008--2011, and is a
member of Titans swim club.
Before this achievement of qualifying
for the Junior Championships, her
career highlight was being a finalist in
the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games
in the Isle of Man. Julien qualified for
Worlds in December last year after
recovering from an injury which kept
out of competition for most of 2012.
The energetic 17-year-old is ready
for the Dubai experience.
"Going in to the meet I am more
excited than nervous. I am looking to
achieve some personal bests in all my
events. This meet means a lot to me
knowing all the hard training I had in
preparation for it and also get a chance
to prove wrong all those who thought
I could not make it. I have had a lot
of support from family, friends and my
club, and I am going to swim with all
my heart for T&T".
Martin is scheduled to compete indi-
vidually in the 50m, 100m, and 200m
butterfly, 200m and 400m freestyle.
Julien is entered in the 50m back-
stroke, butterfly and freestyle events,
and the 100m backstroke.
Both girls are expected to swim in
the mixed 4x100m medley and freestyle
relays. The other athletes on the team
are Dylan Carter, Jonathan Ramkissoon
and Joshua Romany.
