Archers Claim First Ever Island Games Medal

June 27, 2017

Bermuda Archers claimed their first ever Island Games medal today [June 27] while competing in Gotland.

A spokesperson said, “Bernard Wade III and Tiffany Slaton of Bermuda beat 10th seeded Shetland Islands and then 3rd seeded Jersey, followed by 2nd seeded Åland to face 1st seeded Guernsey in the final. Guernsey were too strong for Bermuda and Bermuda claimed the silver medal this afternoon.”

Chef de mission, Jon Beard, said that this is an incredible achievement and is an example of a sport for which the NatWest Island Games has been a true catalyst. We congratulate athletes and coaches on this success.”

Tomorrow will see Bermuda’s archers in a 720 head-to-head knock-out round using the seeding from today’s 720 round in a round-robin format.

    Well done Bermuda Archers and all those who supported you. It’s been 20 years since we first set up the National Governing Body for Archery in Bermuda and I’m pleased that has eventually led this point, which we only dreamed of then. I’m also pleased that Jon Beard was present both at that time and as the Chef De Mission now. It was a long time coming, and I’m so pleased our Archers are now delivering on those dreams. Just wonderful. Well done!
