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.
