Kenneth Maronie (born March 4, 1980) is a Dominican former swimmer, who specialized in sprint freestyle events.[1] Maronie competed for Dominica in the men's 50 m freestyle at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. He received a ticket from FINA, under a Universality program, in an entry time of 26.96.[2] He challenged seven other swimmers in heat two, including teenagers Khalid Al-Kulaibi of Oman (aged 14) and Sikhounxay Ounkhamphanyavong of Laos (aged 17). He faded down the stretch of the race to register a sixth-place time and a personal best of 26.85. Maronie failed to advance into the semifinals, as he placed sixty-seventh overall out of 80 swimmers in the prelims.[3][4]
