istatsint181125Delegates including Bermuda Olympic Association President Judy Simons and Secretary General Stanley Douglas are beginning to arrive here for an Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) General Assembly which is set to be overshadowed by allegations of forgery against current President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah.
Sheikh Ahmad is due to be re-elected as the head of the umbrella organization during the gathering of the 206 National Olympic Committees in Tokyo Wednesday November 28th and Thursday 29th.

It comes despite the emergence of fresh allegations of wrongdoing against the key Olympic powerbroker, who denies the charges, on the eve of the meeting.
Sheikh Ahmad has stepped aside as a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and as head of the Olympic Solidarity Commission pending the outcome of an Ethics Commission hearing into the accusations.

Swiss newspaper Le Temps claimed prosecutor Stéphane Grodecki has accused Sheikh Ahmad and other defendants of creating fake videos as part of a plot against two Kuwaiti Government officials.

Cricket and the Commonwealth are inextricably linked and almost perfectly aligned with 910 million of cricket’s one billion plus adult fans, says ICC CEO David Richardson.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed it has submitted a bid for the inclusion of T20 Women’s Cricket into the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham 2022.

The bid, which has been made in partnership with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), will see one of the world’s fastest growing women’s team sports apply to become part of the Commonwealth Games family.

BOA 2Hamilton, Bermuda, 17 October 2018: The Bermuda Olympic Association (BOA) today announced that the Bermuda Gymnastics Association (BGA), in its capacity as the National Sports Governing Board for Gymnastics, has been able to purchase a regulation Olympic trampoline and power tumbling track, which have been installed at the BGA’s facility in St. David’s. The purchase of the new equipment was funded through the BOA’s partnership programme with the Pan American Sports Organization (PASO) that makes new equipment available to qualifying national sports federations free of charge.

Trampoline has been an Olympic sport since 2000, but without regulation equipment available, the BGA has, until this point, focused on the development of elite athletes only in the disciplines of men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics and rhythmic gymnastics.  Through this equipment grant, the BGA is on track to recognise two more competitive disciplines by 2020: trampoline and parkour.


Kehinde George, BGA President, said “With the support of the BOA, we were able to acquire world-class trampoline and tumbling equipment that will enable us to expand the range of programmes we offer through our facility in St. David’s.  Not only is trampoline a competitive discipline on its own—and one in which we hope to have athletes competing internationally—but also enhances training for athletes who are focused on artistic and rhythmic gymnastics in the areas of balance, flexibility, spatial awareness and the development of core strength.

“We would like to thank the BOA for their ongoing support of and interest in the BGA and gymnastics in Bermuda.” 

Judy Simons, BOA President said, “The BOA is focused on helping our young athletes from all sports along on their journeys to success.  Being able to assist the BGA in upgrading its training facility with new equipment that will enhance Bermudian gymnasts’ training, as well as broaden the range of disciplines in which our young people can participate and compete is truly gratifying.  We’d like to thank the BGA for the great work they do with our young athletes and in our community.”
