Bermuda’s athletes at the Special Olympics World Games in Berlin have been hailed for their medal-winning heroics and camaraderie.

The team will return home with 11 medals from the Games, claiming two gold, one silver and eight bronze.

They surpassed the eight medals they won at the previous Special Games in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, in 2019.

Sacha Richardson, the Special Olympics Bermuda public relations delegation staff member, told Bernews: “Our athletes did really well and had a great time at the Games.

“The excitement for all the athletes was there from start to finish, even for those who weren’t winning medals.

“Our athletes’ focus wasn’t on winning gold, silver or bronze; it was just to perform for themselves, their families and Bermuda.

“Winning medals and participation medals were the icing on the cake.”
