News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – The Bermuda Olympic Association is pleased to announce that Etienne Wolffe has been selected as the National Olympic Committee (NOC) Assistant to Team Bermuda for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games. Bermuda will be assigned a total of 4 NOC assistants by the Paris 2024 Organizing Committee.
Etienne, a Bermudian, is a first-year student at the University of Ottawa in Canada. A graduate of Warwick Academy, where he was the Student Leader of the Human rights project, he is also an avid basketball player and trumpeter.
“Team Bermuda has never had a Bermudian NOC Assistant at a major festival before, so this is a major coup for us. A unique opportunity for a French-speaking Bermudian to be in the throes of the most prolific multi-sports event on the planet. The NOC Assistants are very much a part of the team; they spend time in the village and at venues supporting and assisting athletes, officials, guests, and support staff wherever they may be required. Etienne’s fluency in French, familiarity with France, organizational skills, ability to work under pressure, and passion for sport will be an asset to Bermuda’s Olympic team as our athletes shoulder the mammoth task of providing excellent sporting representation for the country in Paris. We are grateful to have him on board.” says Chef de Mission, Katura Horton-Perinchief.
There were over 300,000 applications received for 45,000 volunteer positions at the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Games will run from July 26 – August 11, 2024.
