Tucker Murphy is gearing up for his third appearance at the Winter Olympics when he competes in the cross-country skiing in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Friday.
Tucker is only the third Bermudian after Simon Payne {luge) and Patrick Singleton (luge and skeleton) to appear at a Winter Olympics.
He finished 88th in Vancouver in 2010 before improving on that display with an 84th-place finish in Sochi.
“[My] chances of medalling are none,” Murphy, who is competing in the 15-kilometre freestyle, told CTV News. “I’m here to ski the best race I can.”

Bermuda’s Chef-de-Mission for the Games is Katura Horton-Perinchief.

The 2018 Commonwealth Games will be held from 4 to 15 April 2018 in Gold Coast Australia and will be the most integrated Games in history, featuring 18 sports and 7 para sports, as well as an equal number of medals for men and women.

Bermuda first competed in the Commonwealth Games in 1930 at Hamilton, Canada and has only missed four editions of the Games. The country’s first medal came in Kingston in 1966 with John Morbey’s silver medal in men's long jump. The 1990 Games in Auckland produced the first gold for Bermuda when Clarence Saunders took gold in the men's high jump.

Jan MurphyTucker Murphy is set to become a three-times Olympian for Bermuda after qualifying for the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, next month.

The cross-country skier, who represented Bermuda in Vancouver in 2010 and in Sochi, Russia, four years ago, has reached the B standard in the 15-kilometre freestyle.

Murphy, 36, has spent the past few months competing in Kandilli, Turkey, and Seefeld, Austria, in an attempt to reach his third successive Winter Olympics.

He will travel to Pyeongchang with his father, Mike Murphy, the president of the Bermuda Winter Ski Association, who will serve as the island’s chef de mission.

“Tucker got the lowest number of [qualifying] points he’s ever had since he started,” Murphy Sr said. “The lower the points, the better the result.

“He’s doing pretty well and he’s getting towards the first cut-off for the top, top groups, so he’s definitely improved.”
