Bermuda Track and Field President Donna Watson said:

We came out with 4 medals from the 16 athletes which I am pleased with as stated previously the competition in the CAC region is a bit harder than Carifta. The distance area is normally dominated by the Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, most of the South American countries therefore our athletes found it a bit tough in the 1200m, 1500m & 3000m. I am very proud and pleased with these athletes as they really performed well and for some the season still has not finished.
