A spokesperson said, “Mr. Franklin was selected in a meeting of team Managers which looked at all athletes. However some athletes eliminated themselves as they are competing early the next day and are wishing not to march.

“Based on the remaining athletes the decision was made to choose Mr. Franklin who is ranked 155 in the world of Squash. At twenty one years old he is also ranked number 1 in his sport in the country.

“His hope at the moment is to win his first match in the draw and go as far as he can in making Bermuda and the squash community proud.”
