Jillian Crooks and James Allison represented team Cayman today, Monday, February 12, at the World Aquatics Championships in Doha, Qatar.  Crooks swam the 100M Backstroke and  Allison swam the 200M Freestyle.  Based on their results, both hardworking swimmers appear to be well on their way to repeating or exceeding their personal bests.

Crooks finished Heat 6 of the 100M Backstroke with a time of 1:02.19.

However, her past performances indicate that she will soon hit the 1:01.00 mark and eventually go below 1:00.00.

This observation is backed by Swim Cloud data, which shows that her times have steadily improved over the past few races. Her personal best of 1:02.01, set at the TYR Pro Swim Series in January 2024, is well within reach and she is expected to surpass it.

A similar observation can be made about her teammate, James Allison, who swam today in the 200M Freestyle.

Allison has consistently improved his level in the 200M Freestyle according to Swim Cloud data.

He achieved his personal best of 1:50.97 at the Commonwealth Youth Games in August 2023 and is expected to achieve a new personal best given his continued commitment.

His next race is scheduled for Wednesday, February 14, where he will compete in the 100M Freestyle.

Meanwhile, Harper Barrowman will swim the 200M Freestyle on Tuesday, February 13,  while  Jillian Crooks will prepare for the 100M Freestyle on Thursday, February 15.  Crooks will also compete on Saturday, February 17, in the 50M Freestyle.
