Congratulatory remarks continue to pour in via social media following Bermuda’s own Jah-Nhai Perinchief’s bronze medal win in triple jump at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on Sunday (Aug 7).

The 24-year-old is now the first Bermudian to medal in athletics at a major Games since Clarence “Nicky’ Saunders won the gold medal in the high jump in 1990, at the Commonwealth Games in Auckland, New Zealand.

His 16.92 leap, in his first attempt, secured the bronze medal and Bermuda’s second medal of these Games held at Alexander Stadium on the final day of the competition.

His win has prompted a host of congratulatory remarks ever since on social media.

Since his bronze medal win, it was announced that Jah-Nhai Perinchief willll head a ten-member team to the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association Senior Championships in Freeport, Bahamas, from August 19 to 21.
