After Bermuda’s Winter Olympian Dr. Tucker Murphy took part in the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang on February 9 while wearing traditional Bermuda shorts, the cross-country skier has sparked curiosity about the unlikely winter attire, causing Google searches for “Bermuda shorts” to spike by 80% in Norway.

Google’s official Twitter account tweeted the fact to its 20 million followers, saying, “Team Bermuda’s shorts had Norway dreaming of sunny weather. Searches for Bermuda shorts spiked by 80% in the Nordic country.”

Dr. Murphy will compete in the Men’s 15K Free Individual Start cross-country ski event. He is accompanied by his Coach Pepa Miloucheva, and Assistant Coach/Waxer Jeff Shaw, as well as Chef de Mission Lawrence [Mike] Murphy, and Sean Field-Lament, who will be representing the Executive Board of the BOA.

The Winter Olympics will be held through February 25, marking the eighth Winter Olympics that Bermuda has participated in.
