Cecilia Wollmann took the traditional plunge in the waters of Biscayne Bay after becoming Bermuda’s youngest sailor to qualify for the Olympic Games.

Wollmann, who was racing at the World Cup in Miami, punched her ticket after completing the Gold Fleet in the women’s Laser Radial as the top sailor from North America yet to qualify for the Games in Rio de Janeiro.

It was the final act of what has been a steady performance all week in variable and challenging conditions by Wollmann, who celebrated her eighteenth birthday just a week ago.

“It was such a relief to finish and have qualified,” Wollmann said. “It’s always nice to reach a goal that you have worked really hard for.

Judy Simons, the Bermuda Olympic Association president, believes the Olympic Games in Rio will be a success despite health concerns stemming from the outbreak of the Zika virus and contaminated water in Rio.

“There are several issues within Rio itself,” Simons said. “But I know the International Olympic Committee are working very closely with the organising committee for the Rio team.

“I don’t doubt they are going to be good Olympics and at the end of the day I think our athletes will be fine and will do this country extremely proud.”

New appointment: Singleton has been named to the IOC athletes' commission

Patrick Singleton has been named to an influential commission within the International Olympic Committee.

The Bermuda Olympian will take over as the World Olympians Association representative on the IOC athletes’ commission for an initial term running through to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo when Amadou Dia Ba, who presently holds the post, finishes his term after the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Singleton, a three-time winter Olympian, who represented the island in luge in 1998 and 2002, and in skeleton in 2006, was the sole representative for Bermuda at the Nagano, Japan, Salt Lake City and Torino Olymic Games, and was the first Bermudian to win medals in any winter event.

He also serves as the treasurer on the WOA’s executive committee and credits his successful athletic career for his latest appointment.

“This is a real honour and I would just like to say a big thank you to the IOC president Thomas Bach, and the WOA president Joël Bouzou, and to all the people in Bermuda who have helped support me as an athlete over the years,” Singleton said.

“Without their support to get to the World Championships, to get to the Olympic Games, to be able to compete and win medals at elite competitions I wouldn’t have been able to get to where I am today in sports administration. Now it’s my time to give back to athletes.
