IMG 7256The Bermuda Olympic Association through the WIS Committee held the WIS banquet and Expo  The theme for the weekend was "Be the Champions of Your Life" and the goal was not only to get our young girls involved in sport but to just get them moving.  

This event was held at the Hamilton Princess and the banquet was held the same day as International Women's Day.  The banquet was well attended by many of our NSGBs young girls in attendance.  We had 2 dynamic speakers who are multi US Olympians Hazel Clarke and Jearl Miles Clark (twice Olympic medalist).  Their speeches were dynamic and directed to the young girls in the audience telling their story of their journey towards becoming an Elite athlete, the good and the bad.
