The Bermudian pair lost their opening game 2-0 to the Dominican Republic on Wednesday before being handed a 2-0 win over Surinam, who did not show up for their match on Thursday.

The opening ceremony of the CAC Games were held at the Jorge “El Màgico” National Stadium last night, with boxer Roach and beach volleyball player LeBlanc performing the island’s flag-bearing duties.

Peter Dunne, the Bermuda Olympic Association president, said: “The selection of Adrian and Lisa as Bermuda’s flag bearers is a tribute to their commitment to sport, their sporting organisations and all of Bermuda.

“They have already commenced a busy two weeks of competition in San Salvador, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have them leading our athletes into the stadium this evening.”
