The BNAA are delighted to announce the Carifta Team for 2014, which will consist of 13 athletes.

As you are aware we have increased our standards as this year we are looking for quality and not quantity.  

Therefore, these athletes have worked very hard and committed themselves to reaching the standards that were set.  We are very pleased with this team and watching all of them compete at the just concluded Interschool Sports I am very pleased with their performances and know that they are ready for the Games.  

Unfortunately, we did have three other athletes qualify — Kyle Webb, Bruce DeGrilla and Devwah Whaley — but due to school commitments they are unable to attend the games.  

We are looking for some good performances from these athletes and know that they will represent Bermuda well and give 100 per cent.  I am sure we will return with a few medals.  

Below is the team and the events they will be competing in.  The team departs Bermuda on Wednesday, April 16.

The Games, which are being held in Martinique begin Friday the 18th with the Opening Ceremony and the competition begins Saturday April 19th - Monday April 21st.
