Emma Keane and Dage Minors chosen as flag bearers for Commonwealth Games opening ceremony
Squash player Emma Keane and middle-distance runner Dage Minors will be joint flag bearers for Bermuda at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England.
The announcement was made this afternoon by chef de mission Donna Raynor, who said: “We considered a few things. Emma Keane is our first female squash player to represent Bermuda for the Commonwealth Games. We have all been watching and seeing Dage compete in various races and he has broken Bermuda’s 1,500 metres record. I thought these two were the best choice to be flag bearers for Bermuda.”
The opening ceremony will be held tomorrow and the Bermuda team will see their first on Friday in swimming, squash and notably in triathlon where Dame Flora Duffy will defend the title she won in Gold Coast, Australia, four years ago.
