Bermuda

Bermuda is an overseas UK territory and lies in the North Atlantic, east of the United States. The islands and islets of Bermuda lie along the southern rim of the summit of a submarine volcanic mountain.

The Bermudas made their debut in the 1930 Games in Hamilton and have only missed four editions of the Games. Their first medal came in Kingston in 1966 with a silver medal for John Morbey in the men's long jump final. The 1990 Games in Auckland produced the first gold for Bermuda when Clarence Saunders took gold in the men's high jump. Bermuda also medaled at the 1994 and 1998 Games.

Bermuda has a long and distinguished involvement in international sport, having been recognised as a National Olympic Committee (NOC) in 1936. This NOC is responsible for organising Bermuda's participation in the Commonwealth Games and Commonwealth Youth Games.
