July 3, 2015

[Updated] Bermuda continues to rack up the Island Games medals — including three more golds — as Dominique Mayho, Chris Estwanik, Taahira Butterfield, Natasha Trott, Adrienne Smatt and the women’s cycling team have all added to our medal tally.

Taahira Butterfield won gold in the 200m in a time of 25.51, Natasha Trott won silver in a time of 25.62, and Faye Cox from the Shetland Islands rounded out the top three, with the placings actually being completely the same as the 100m which was held earlier this week.

Cyclist Dominique Mayho won gold on the Men’s Individual Town Centre Criterium, while Chris Estwanik won his third Island Games medal earlier today [July 3] racing to victory in the 10,000m.

This brings Bermuda’s medal tally up to 14, as Gabriella Arnold won bronze in the cycling road race, she and Karen Bordage combined to win silver in the team competition, Chris Estwanik won gold in the half marathon and silver in the 5000m, Taahira Butterfield and Natasha Trott won medals in the 100m, David Kendell won silver  in sailboarding  and Kalin Hillier claimed a bronze in sailing.
