The Caribbeans, especially a very fast Jamaican, have left their indelible mark.  From a golden dive at the finish line, to a young Haitian woman swimming her way into history, to winning gold medals at 3 Olympics in a row, the Caribbeans certainly came and conquered.  At final tally, Caribbeans walked away with a total of 28 medals.
