12 Videos: Bermudians At The Olympic Games

August 22, 2016

The 2016 Olympic Games saw its closing ceremony take place, ending an event that saw Bermuda field a team of eight world class athletes.

The Games saw long jumper Tyrone Smith mark his third Olympic appearance with a 16 place finish, while swimmers Julian Fletcher and Rebecca Heyliger made their Olympic debuts.

Sailor Cameron Pimentel tested himself against the best in the world, joined by fellow sailor Ceci Wollmann, who was the youngest member of our team at only 18 years old.

Rower Shelley Pearson placed 16th overall and was also the first female to represent Bermuda at rowing in Olympics, while sprinter Tre Houston showed his speed on the track, delivering the first Olympic appearance by Bermuda in the 200m in 20 years.

Flora Duffy was our last athlete to compete, delivering the island’s first top 10 finish since 2004 by placing eighth in the triathlon.

With the Olympics coming to a close, Bermudians will now be turning our attention to the Paralympics, where Jessica Lewis and Yushae DeSilva-Andrade are set to represent the island in Brazil next month.
