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.

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.
