Minister of Sports Congratulates Parapan Games Medal Winners

Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Sport, Owen Darrell, has expressed congratulations to Paralympians Jessica Lewis and Yushae DeSilva-Andrade on winning Gold and Silver Medals respectively in the 2023 Parapan American Games, in Santiago Chile.

Minister Darrell said, “I want to send a huge congratulations on behalf of the Government of Bermuda to Lewis and DeSilva-Andrade for their monumental achievements at the Parapan American Games.

The sense of pride in our athletes who have competed and won medals in this year’s games cannot be overstated.

I look forward to meeting with Lewis and DeSilva-Andrade when they return home to Bermuda and to join in the celebration of their awesome achievement.

Lewis was the first Bermudian to compete at the Para Pan American Games in Mexico in 2011. Her time of 16.71 in Santiago over the weekend, sets a new Parapan Am Games record and sends a clear message to her fellow athletes ahead of the 2024 Paralympic Games in Paris.

DeSilva- Andrade won a Silver Medal in the B1 Boccia event in this year’s Parapan Am Games after having made her Paralympic debut in 2016. This Silver Medal win follows her Gold Medal finish at the Brazil World Baccia in Brazil in September of this year.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Bermuda Paralympic Association and other key stakeholders who have made Bermuda’s success at these games possible.”
