Hamilton, Bermuda─ 03 July 2017:

The Bermuda Olympic Association (BOA) today announced that two elite Bermudian winter sports athletes have received Olympic Scholarships through the International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Solidarity programme in support of their bids to compete at the XXIII Winter Olympiad in Pyeongchang, Republic of Korea in February 2018. Tucker Murphy (Cross Country Skiing) and Matthew Leseur (Freestyle Skiing) will each receive a monthly grant to support them as they train for the Games, as well as additional funding to cover their transportation costs for participation in Olympic qualification competitions. Olympic Solidarity is the IOC commission responsible for administering and managing the National Olympic Committees’ (NOC) share of the broadcast rights from the Olympic Games. It redistributes these funds through programmes according to the needs and priorities of the NOCs and their Continental Associations. Programmes are divided into four areas: Athletes; Coaches; NOC Management; and Promotion of the Olympic Values. Athletes’ programmes are structured to enable the NOCs to provide technical and financial assistance to athletes at all levels who are preparing for international competitions. BOA President, Judy Simons, said, “To perform at the elite level requires an athlete to commit himself or herself to almost full-time training and coaching, which requires a substantial financial commitment. The BOA is pleased to be able to assist Tucker and Matthew as they train and compete to earn the right to represent Bermuda on the world stage at the Pyeongchang Winter Games.”

olympic day 17

 

The Bermuda Olympic Association marked international Olympic Day on Friday, June 23rd, 2017 with a special swimming event at the Aquatics Facility at the National Sports Centre.

Ben Smith, Aquatics Manager and National Coach of the Bermuda Amateur Swimming Association, hosted 32 young swimmers at the National Pool. They were invited to learn new skills, compete in friendly racing, and showcase their abilities. Julian Fletcher, Olympian and five-time World Championship competitor, was on hand to provide tips, inspiration, and celebrate the spirit of Olympic Day with Bermuda’s young swimmers.

The International Olympic Committee launched Olympic Day in 1987 to promote participation in sport by men, women and children around the world, encouraging them to “Move, Learn and Discover.” National Olympic Committees worldwide host Olympic Day events annually to provide opportunities for the public to be active, learn about Olympic values and discover new sports, as well as provide the opportunity for young people to interact with their countries’ Olympic athletes.

Judy Simons, BOA President said, “We have to place more value on participation in sport among our young people, as it benefits not only the participants, but our entire community. Involvement in sports promotes fitness and a sense of personal achievement, as well as learning about teamwork and good sportsmanship. Olympic Day is great vehicle to showcase those positives, and I would like to thank Ben and Julian for assisting the BOA in organising this year’s events.”
