The Minister of Social Development and Sports Michael Weeks announced that there will be a motorcade on Monday morning to celebrate Bermuda’s Triathlon Champion Flora Duffy and her triumphant win at the Commonwealth Games earlier this month.
Also travelling in the motorcade will be Clarence “Nicky" Saunders – Bermuda’s first Gold Medalist at the Commonwealth Games in 1990 (High Jump).
The Minister called on Bermuda’s residents to line the streets of the route to show their support for the two Commonwealth champions.
Minister Weeks said, “I am encouraging people to come out and cheer for two of Bermuda’s most outstanding athletes. Both Flora and Nicky have proven to be the best of the best in their sport and are an incredible inspiration to our young athletes.
“Flora has proven herself time and time again on the international sporting scene and continues to make us proud.”
The route begins at 11:30am from the Fairmont Hamilton Hotel & Beach Club and continues along Pitts Bay Road, up Queen Street, along Church Street (past City Hall), and then makes a right on Court Street to end at the Cabinet Office.
Once at the grounds of Cabinet (at approximately 12noon), Flora will meet with Minister Weeks as well as Premier David Burt who will present a certificate to the two athletes.
