Lee to take charge of Pan Am Games team

Carlos Lee has been appointed chef de mission of the Bermuda team for the Pan American Games in Toronto from July 10 to 26.

In his role Lee will be the lead representative of Bermuda, supporting and mentoring the athletes and serving as spokesperson and liaison with Games officials and organisers.

Lee has served as Treasurer on the Bermuda Olympic Association's Executive Board since 2008.

He represented Bermuda at the 1987 Pan American Games in field hockey. He also played football in the First Division for Southampton Rangers SC, in the Commercial League for Forties FC and Fire Service FC and continues to play cricket in the Twenty20 Evening League for PwC Byes.

“I congratulate Carlos on his well-deserved appointment as chef de mission for Toronto 2015,” Judy Simons, BOA president, said. “We're assembling a great team for the Pan Am Games, and I know they will represent Bermuda well under Carlos's leadership.”

Established in 1951, the Pan American Games are the world's third largest international multi-sport festival after the Olympics and Asian Games. The Pan Am and Parapan Am Games are held every four years. Athletes from the 41 member nations of the Pan American Sports Organisation (“PASO”) compete.

To date, six Bermuda athletes have qualified for the Games in equestrian, gymnastics, sailing, and cycling. The BOA will name the Bermuda Pan Am team in the coming weeks.
