BRIEF: Former Pierce Brahma wins gold medal

Former Brahma Eric-Jacques Caprani, who was a swimmer for Pierce in 1998, made waves at the European Masters Games held in Torino as he won gold in the 50-yard backstroke.

The competition took place from July 28 to July 30 at the Palazzo del Nuoto.

Even though there were roadblocks along the way, including being ill for the competition, Caprani was still able to end up victorious.

“After a year where I got injured a few times, I decided at the last moment to participate at the European Masters Games,” Caprani said. “I am proud of the gold, although it was less expected than the other two bronze medals I got in the 50-yard fly and 200 individual medley.”

He dedicates the medal to his family and former coach Fred Shaw.

The games are still going on with the closing ceremony being held on Aug. 4.
