Hamilton, Bermuda—8 January 2016: The Bermuda Olympic Association (“BOA”) today announced that Brenda Dale has been named Chef de Mission to lead the Bermuda Olympic Team at the Games of the XXXI Olympiad being held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 5 August to 21 August 2016. In this role, Ms. Dale will be responsible for preparing the Team for attendance at the Games, overseeing the athletes’ participation and conduct, and ensuring they have access to the resources and support they need to perform their best in Rio.

Ms. Dale, a Bermudian, is currently AVP, Wellness at BF&M. She has more than 30 years experience in sports coaching, consulting and administration in both Canada and Bermuda. She served as Sports Advisor for the Ministry of Youth & Sports from 1989 to 1994, and as Chairperson for the Government’s Women in Sport Committee from 2002 to 2005. Ms. Dale has been a member of the Board of the BOA since 2008, and a Vice President of the BOA since 2012.
Judy Simons, BOA President, said, “As a coach who has dedicated her time to a number of girls’ sports in Bermuda, and as a BOA executive and Board Member, Brenda is well known to our athletes as a friend, supporter and champion of their journeys. As an experienced administrator, she is well equipped to help our athletes navigate the hectic and sometimes challenging environment of a major international sporting festival. She is the right choice to lead the Team, and I know they will be in good hands as they strive to deliver their best performances in Rio.”

Ms. Dale said, “I am honoured to be Bermuda’s Chef de Mission for the Rio Games. I look forward to working with our athletes, their coaches and the rest of the Team to show the world the amazing athletic talent we have in Bermuda. I feel that my background as a coach, and my experience in sport and public administration, as well as my involvement in the Olympic movement over the last eight years have prepared me well for this challenge. I thank the BOA for the opportunity to help represent Bermuda on the world stage, and thank BF&M and my family for their support.”

IOC President

An Independent Financial Audit will be conducted by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) into grants it awards to the various International Federations and National Olympic Committees (NOCs) including the Bermuda Olympic Association in a bid to increase transparency within sport in the midst of corruption and doping scandals, Thomas Bach announced.

The process, to be initiated in 2016 and cover finances, as well as good governance aspects, was adopted by the IOC Executive Board at the conclusion of its meeting here.

It has the support of both the Federations and NOCs, according to the IOC, and 89 out of the 206 NOCs have already begun financial audits.

The news follows the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations adopting its own good governance task forces, which aims to "practically support the Federations’ intention to ensure good governance within their own structures".

Back on September 9th, Smith was due to take part in the Great CityGames showcase, however during the warm-up, Smith grabbed his leg and withdrew from the competition immediately, later stating on his social media page, “That's what it feels like to tear your hamstring.”

BOA WebsiteUpdate Nov30 ShelleyPearson1

It has been more than 40 years since Bermuda was represented in rowing at the Olympics, Shelley Pearson wants to change all that.

The Oxford University student has dreamed of competing on the world stage ever since she took up the sport at school, and has been working towards her goal ever since.

However, for a time it seemed as if the 24-year-old’s dream might remain just that.

A fractured pelvis, torn tendon and nine surgeries over the course of just two years to combat an aneurysmal bone cyst, meant she had to temper her expectations. Not an easy task for someone for whom life without the sport is almost unimaginable.

“I can remember the moment I fell in love with the sport,” Pearson said. “I felt all the athletes in the boat rowing in perfect harmony. It was as if we were gliding weightlessly on top of the water. The moment you’ve experienced that feeling, it’s what you constantly strive toward.”
