    Job well done ! To all of the atheletes and to the organizers! Can I just ask a question to all the readers? I noticed that there are not many postes for this but let there be some bad news about our young people. Could this be a part of our problem? Our young people are givin to much attention for doing bad and highlighted when they do bad? Lets show some support to all of the young people who are doing their part todo good. Stop putting so much energy into the violence and frankly dont even post on those things. Its a waste of time ! Just ignore ignorance and it will go away!

    The response to this article tells you a lot about Bermudians. Anything controversial has oodles of responses and this article only has a few. Shows Bermudians love controversy and love to complain. Congratulations to all my fellow Bermudians who participated in Carifta!!!!!

    I thought the past Four days have been well organized, many people took time off to assist! Teams gathered and mingled! In my opinion, the athletes added so much excitement to the Carifta games! So proud of all of them! The opening ceremony was amazing! I LOVE CARIFTA!
