He did just that.

Max won gold in the 200-meter backstroke and a bronze in the 400 freestyle Tuesday night. Both wins were in the boys 13-14 category. The gold medal brought his first-place medal total at the competition to four, an impressive feat for the U.S. Virgin Islands swimmer.

Also winning last night was Jaidan Camacho, who won a silver medal in the 100-meter breaststroke.
