Lima, Tuesday July 25th, 2017

Lima 2019 Organizing Committee, Communications Unit

At exactly two years from the opening ceremony of the XVIII Pan American Games, the most important sporting event in Peruvian history, the Lima 2019 Organizing Committee is proud to announce “Milco” as the official mascot of the XVIII Pan American and Sixth Parapan American Games.

The prizewinning design was elected through a closed voting process where over 44,514 people showed their support for the three finalists, who were chosen by a panel of judges. “Milco” won this public contest with over 19,895 votes, surpassing “Wayqi” who ranked second with 17,274 votes. “Amantis” came in third with 7,345 votes.

The unvailing was carried out in an impressive ceremony in presence of the main sports authorities of the country and the Lima 2019 “Sports Ambassadors”, who not only are Peru’s TOP Athletes but will also compete at the Pan Am and Parapan Am Lima 2019 Games.

Medal winners returnBermuda’s triumphant trio returned to the island from the Commonwealth Youth Games last night with their medals draped proudly around their necks.

Cyclists Matthew Oliveira and Alyssa Rowse, and athlete Sakari Famous received a rapturous welcome at the LF Wade International Airport after bringing home four medals from Nassau, Bahamas.

A pair of scintillating rides by Oliveira in the boys’ time-trial and road race accounted for half of those, a gold and bronze, while Rowse captured bronze in the girls’ time-trial.

Famous, who at 17 is the same age as Oliveira and Rowse, capped off Bermuda’s most successful display at the multi-sport event by leaping to a bronze in the girls’ high jump.

Glory hunters:  Matthew Oliveira, Alyssa Rowse - the cyclists - and athlete Sakari Famous arrive at LF Wade International Airport last night and show off their hardware from the Commonwealth Youth Games. Oliveira won gold in the boys’ time-trial and bronze in the road race. Rowse captured bronze in the girls’ time-trial and Famous won bronze in the high jump in Nassau, Bahamas. Rowse’s bronze was Bermuda’s first medal at the Games, before Oliveira won the island’s first gold.

Oliveria Strikes goldMatthew Oliveira announced himself on the world stage by winning Bermuda’s first Commonwealth Youth Games gold medal in the island’s history.

Oliveira delivered a remarkable display to win the boys time-trial yesterday after stopping the clock at 12min 06sec, 12 seconds faster than silver medal-winner Dylan Hughes, of Scotland, in Nassau, Bahamas.

The 17-year-old had told The Royal Gazette prior to the Games that Nassau would merely be an experience-gaining exercise against some of the world’s top junior riders.

Sitting pretty: Oliveira, left, Rowse, centre, and Hopkins delivered superb performances in their cycling time-trial races at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Nassau, Bahamas. Oliveira won the gold medal in the boys time-trial, with Hopkins placing sixth, Rowse earned bronze in the girls race.
