The Bermuda Olympic Association (“BOA”) officially announced the names of the athletes and officials who will represent Bermuda at the XXI Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.
The 2018 Commonwealth Games will be held from April 4th – 15th in Gold Coast Australia and will be the most integrated Games in history, featuring 18 Sports and 7 Para Sports, as well as an equal number of medals for Men and Women.
Bermuda will have eight athletes competing in four disciplines, as follows:
• Tyler Butterfield • Tre Houston • Tyrone Smith • Kyle Webb
Bermuda’s Chef-de-Mission for the Games is Katura Horton-Perinchief.
Bermuda first competed in the Commonwealth Games in 1930 at Hamilton, Canada and has only missed four editions of the Games. The country’s First Medal came in Kingston in 1966 with John Morbey’s Silver Medal in Men's Long Jump. The 1990 Games in Auckland produced the First Gold for Bermuda when Clarence Saunders took Gold in the Men's High Jump.
Two athletes will double up with Butterfield competing in both the Triathlon and the Men’s Marathon, while Duffy will also compete in the Triathlon and Mountain Biking.
This will be Tyler Smith, Erica Hawley and Kyle Webb’s first appearance in the Games.
