Conor White’s bronze medal upped Bermuda’s medal count to 10 in the history of the Pan Am Games. He becomes the first cyclist to reach the podium, and made cycling just the fifth sport Bermuda has medaled in. Bermuda has brought home medals in sailing five times, and equestrian twice.

Malcom Smith is the only Bermudian to medal twice; the first time in 1999 with a silver in the Laser Class in Winnipeg, Canada, which he followed up with a bronze in 2023 in the Dominican Republic in the Sunfish Class.

Speaking of Winnipeg, half [5] of Bermuda’s medals have been won in that city. Two in 1967 with the Men’s National Football Team bringing home silver and Eugene ‘Penny’ Simmons and Richard Belvin collecting a bronze.

The island topped that total in its most successful Games with a gold and two silvers in the 1999 Winnipeg Games. In those Games, Mary Jane Tumbridge won the island’s only gold medal in three-day eventing. Smith and Sara Wright both took home silvers in sailing.
