Bermudas 2016 Olympic Team IG2Is this the year Bermuda claims its second Olympic medal?

Two Bermudians have odds placed on them to stand on the podium at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Triathlete Flora Duffy heads a strong Bermuda contingent that also includes medal hopeful Tyrone Smith, sailors Cameron Pimentel and Ceci Wollmann, swimmers Julian Fletcher and Rebecca Heyliger, rower Michelle Pearson and sprinter Tre Houston.

The Games get underway on Friday and both Pearson and Fletcher will be early participants.

Fletcher, competing in the men’s 100M breaststroke will compete this Saturday afternoon while Pearson will compete in the women’s single sculls that morning. Depending on how well she does, her event continues through Saturday, August 13.

Pimentel, competing in the men’s laser, and Wollmann, sailing in the women’s laser radial class, will both do 10 races over five days starting on Monday, August 8 through Saturday, August 13. It is the first Olympics for both, and Bermuda could see a couple of top 10 finishes in individual races.

Heyliger will compete in the women’s 50m free in front of her parents on Friday, August 12. The former USC Trojans swim captain is competing in her first Olympics.

Sprinter Tre Houston is grateful to also be competing in his first Games after the heartbreak of not making London four years ago. He will lace up for the 200m, Bermuda’s first 200m competitor since National Coach Troy Douglas suited up at the 1996 Atlanta Games, on Tuesday, August 16.
