The Bermuda Olympic Association
only sent 6 athletes to Beijing and they are all safely back on the island disappointed but probably not totally surprised that they didn't bring a medal back through customs. Bermuda's biggest hope was 24-year old swimmer Kiera Aitken, who smashed her own national record in the 100m backstroke but that still wasn't good enough to get out of her heat.
Both long jumpers Tyrone Smith and Arantxa King missed out on the final by inches, Tyrone at one point looked like he might join the elite but missed qualifying by just 3 centimetres but still managed 15th overall. In Hong Kong show jumper Jill Teceira flew through a qualifying round and looked set for a third but her horse Chaka III refused twice in the 2nd qualifier.
Swimmer Roy Burch will be disappointed with a poor race in the 100m freestyle heat, finishing a long way off his national record and young Flora Duffy
suffered a similar fate in the triathlon failing to even finish all of the three events.
