Mayho to lead team at Youth Games

Dominique Mayho will lead the local contingent into the fourth Commonwealth Youth Games in the Isle of Man next month, with local athletes competing in four sports at the Games.

Mayho, who is fresh off his gold medal success at the recently completed Junior Caribbran Cycling Championships, will look to add another podium to his collection in the cycing events with Tre’Shun Correia who also competed at the Championships.

Teammates, Bruce DeGrilla jr (long jump), Kyle Webb (100, 200m), Scott Clarke (100, 200m), and Akeila Richardson (triple jump), make up the athletics team primed and ready to hit the track.

Nic Patterson will be the lone swimmer, competing in five events; 50m, 100m, and 200m butterfly, 100 and 200m freestyle, and Sydney Mason, the youngest athlete in the squad, will compete in all individual events in gymnastics.

On hand for the announcement of the team was Sports Minister Glenn Blakeney, and Bermuda Olympic Association (BOA) president Judy Simons.

“Bermuda should be proud of the team of talented athletes who will represent our country at the upcoming Commonwealth Youth Games,” said Simons.

The competition, which starts September 7th and runs to the 13th, will be the country’s third participation, with the country taking part in Bendigo, Australia in 2004, and in Pune, India in 2008.

Accompanying the athletes while at the Games will be Cal Simons, Carola Cooper, and officials Devon Bean, Peter Dunne, Ben Smith, and Duke Nelligan.
