Bermuda’s CARIFTA team swimmers touched down on home ground this week, following a stunning medal winning performance in Jamaica.
On hand to greet with a host of family members, relatives and friends was Acting Minister of Sports, Lovitta Foggo, who welcomed them back and congratulated them on their numerous medals.
Both teams arrived over a two-day period earlier this week, starting with Bermuda’s track & field athletes on Tuesday, followed by our swimmers, who arrived at the LF Wade International Airport on Wednesday.
Bermuda’s swimmers came home with 32 medals, including 11 gold, 12 silver and 9 bronze medals.
Ms Foggo commended them for a job well done, and told them they did “an excellent, phenomenal job in the events representing us”.

Minister of Social Development and Sports, Michael Weeks, who travelled to the Bahamas with Bermuda’s track & field contingent was on hand to welcome them at the airport, with Ms Foggo, and the team’s host of relatives and friends.
The track & field contingent was headed up by team captain and high jumper Sakari Famous, who won a bronze medal in the Under 20 Girls High Jump with a top leap of 1.79m.
