CAC Games: 24 Athletes To Represent Bermuda

June 22, 2018

The Bermuda Olympic Association [BOA] announced the names of the athletes who will represent Bermuda at the XXIII Central American & Caribbean [CAC] Games, which are being held in Barranquilla, Colombia from 19 July through 3 August 2018.

24 athletes will compete in Athletics, Bowling, Boxing, Equestrian, Squash, Cycling, Sailing, Triathlon and Swimming. The athletes will be accompanied by Chef de Mission Jon Beard, and Assistant Chef de Mission Craig Brown.

“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 BOA said.

“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 in the first year following a Summer Olympics, and the Pan American Games, which are held the year before the Summer Olympics.”
