Swiss swim champ Dano Halsall in Jamaica discover his roots
Dano Halsall regrets not representing Jamaica but is willing to impart his vast knowledge to the current swimmers.
ORMER 50m Swiss freestyle world record holder Dano Halsall is in the island trying to discover his Jamaican roots and culture.
The 53-year-old Swiss hero is the son of Jamaican Conrad Halsall and the cousin of successful businessman Doug Halsall, the CEO of information technology company, Advanced Integrated Systems Limited.
Halsall would like to meet swimming sensation Alia Atkinson, athletics great Usain Bolt, and visit the Bob Marley Museum — the late reggae icon being his hero.
“The purpose of my visit is to meet my family, my roots actually, because I have never been to Jamaica before. This is the first time”
said Halsall, who broke the 50m freestyle world record on July 21, 1985 as a 22-year-old.
