“It’s an honour to be chosen as Bermuda’s flag bearer at the closing ceremony,” Hopkins said. “I am so proud of our country and the athletes we are producing. To be the one holding the flag high for us here at the Commonwealth Games means so much to me.”

Raynor said: “Team Bermuda has performed very well since the start of the Games and we are proud of all our athletes who have competed so far.”

Competition for Bermuda concludes tomorrow with Jah-Nhai Perinchief in the triple jump final, while Hopkins will join Conor White and Nicholas Narraway in the men’s 160-kilometre road race.

Caitlin Conyers took ill and missed the women’s individual time-trial but the Bermuda Olympic Association, which had previously refused comment on her status, has included her in this update as being ready to take the start line for the 112km road race.
