In a close-knit community like Bermuda, fewer things are more unifying than sport. Our athletes are our heroes, and since we so often know them personally, this makes their respective journeys and hardships all the more satisfying for us when they’re victorious. Bermuda’s impressive history of producing world-class athletes began in 1936 when the first Olympic team competed in Berlin. Since then, over 150 young men and women from Bermuda have sought the same hard-won goal:  winning an Olympic medal.
