Bermuda on track to host CARIFTA
HAMILTON – President of the Bermuda National Athletics Association (BNAA) Donna Raynor says next month’s CARIFTA Games, which are set to attract more than 600 athletes from 27 Caribbean countries, should not be affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that is spreading across the globe.
The virus has reached non-English speaking Caribbean countries, with a few cases in the Dominican Republic, Martinique, St Martin and St Barthélemy.
The 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, slated for July 24 to August 9, are under threat due to the spread of COVID-19 globally.
But as Bermuda prepares to host the 49th CARIFTA Games – the fifth time the island will be the location for the event – Raynor said she did not expect the COVID-19 situation would disrupt the staging. (CMC)
