2014 CAC Games logo veracruzThe Bermuda Olympic Association [BOA] today [Oct 28] confirmed the names of the athletes who will represent Bermuda at the XXII Central American & Caribbean [CAC] Games, which are being held in Veracruz, Mexico from 14 to 30 November 2014.

The BOA said, “41 Bermudian athletes will compete in Athletics, Cycling, Equestrian, Swimming, Sailing, Hockey and Rugby 7s. The athletes will be accompanied by Chef-de-Mission Donna Watson and Deputy Chef-de-Mission, Katura Horton-Perinchief.

“The CAC Games are the oldest continuous-running regional games, dating back to 1926. Held every four years, the Games typically host competitors from countries in Central America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Bermuda, and the South American countries of Surinam, Guyana, Colombia and Venezuela.

“The CAC Games are considered the starting point of international competition for athletes from the region who are seeking to represent their countries at the Olympic level. They are designed to provide a step between sub-CAC-region Games held the first year following a Summer Olympics and the Pan American Games, which are held the year before the Summer Olympics.”

BOA President, Judy Simons, said, “We have a very talented team heading to Veracruz, and I am confident our athletes will represent Bermuda well in the eight sports in which we are competing this edition of the CAC Games. The BOA is proud to have helped these young people reach this milestone on their journeys to success. ”
