July 2, 2015

Bermuda won two more Island Games medals today [July 2] with David Kendell winning a silver medal in the sailboarding event and Kalin Hillier claiming a bronze in the sailing Laser Standard Rig competition.

Also in action for Bermuda during the sailboarding event was Scott Mello who placed 9th, Matthew Wilken who finished 15th and Alexander Jones who placed 17th, while Bermuda’s David Hillier placed 18th in the Laser Standard Rig.

This brings Bermuda’s medal tally up to eight, 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 the silver in the 5000m, while Taahira Butterfield won gold in the 100m and Natasha Trott won silver in the 100m.

Sprinters Taahira Butterfield and Natasha Trott placed 1st and 2nd in the 200m heats, with both going through to the finals which will be held later today, and both sprinters can be expected to be very competitive in the finals.

In addition, Bermuda’s basketball team has recorded four victories thus far, and are projected to add to Bermuda’s medal tally during these Games.
