The Bermuda Carifta Games Team will be leaving Thursday April 13th @ 8:52am to head out to Curacao.
Bermuda National Athletics Association President Donna Raynor said, “We have the 18 athletes, 4 officials Devon Bean, Rohaan Simons, Gina Evans and Terry Lynn Paynter, along with myself and Norbert Simons will be traveling and we will meet up with Suresh Black and Tiara Derosa in Miami. Dr. Freddie Evans has been requested as an official and he will be leaving Wednesday.
We are looking forward to a successful competition and even though we have several newbies we are very excited with this team and find it to be well rounded.
Of course we have high expectations for Sakari Famous who has been a Medalist at each Carifta she has attended. Tiara Derosa who has been putting in some good throws while at University and should be ready for the competition as she has been competed over the past several months and her throws have been steadily increasing. I believe we will have several surprises with this team as well. I surely will be looking forward to the Boys Under 18 4X100m relay as I have seen the boys in the last 2 meets and their relay baton exchanges are looking pretty good. I have no doubt these athletes will give Bermuda 100% and represent themselves and Bermuda very well.”
