BronzeMicah Franklin and Noah Browne have won Bermuda’s first medal at the Central American and Caribbean Games for eight years — despite losing to Mexico in the men’s doubles squash semi-finals in Cali, Colombia, today.

The pair, who were guaranteed bronze after beating Trinidad and Tobago 11-8, 11-4 in the quarter-finals on Saturday, won the opening set 11-10 against César and Arturo Martínez Salazar, of Mexico, before losing the next two 11-6, 11-5.

Franklin said he has mixed emotions after threatening to pull off a big upset.

“It was a very tight game and we so easily could have snuck an upset,” said the 25-year-old.

"Team Bermuda's CAC Games competition is off to a strong start. We are cheering on all of our fantastic athletes!"

3. LacrosseThe Bermuda Men’s National Lacrosse team made an excellent showing at the World Lacrosse Championships in Israel, recording five victories — defeating Mexico, Croatia, Peru, Taiwan and Luxembourg — to mark the most successful showing by Bermuda lacrosse in international tournaments in a decade.

The island’s team punched well above its weight, defeating significantly larger nations, with Mexico having a population of 127.5 million, while Peru has 33.1 million, Taiwan has 23.7 million, Croatia has 4.1 million, and Luxembourg has a population 580,000.

Bermuda’s final record was 5-3, which marks the most successful showing by Bermuda lacrosse in international tournaments since the 2008 U-19’s where they finished 3-2.
