The Games will be held in Guadalajara, Mexico from October 14 to 30.

Judy Simons, president of the BOA said: “Once again, Bermuda has assembled a strong team for the Pan American Games — our twelfth Pan Am Games — and we are looking forward to the competition. We know Bermuda's athletes will do our country proud.

“We are pleased that the BOA has been able to play a part in helping prepare and fund our athletes’ participation in such an important and high profile international sporting festival. It is gratifying for all of us at the BOA to be able to play a part in these athletes' ongoing journeys to success.”

Philip Guishard will travel with the squad as Chef-de-Mission.

Bermuda first competed in the Pan American Games in 1967 at Winnipeg, Canada and has participated in all subsequent Pan American Games, winning a total of eight medals.

Thousands of athletes from 42 countries, including 275 from the United States, will compete in 36 sports during the Games, the world’s second-largest sporting event after the Olympics.
