Bahamas receive Olympic bronze 13 years after games

NASSAU, Bahamas,  CMC- The Bahamas Olympic Men’s 4 x 400 metre relay team has been presented with bronze medals from the Sydney Olympic Games of 2000.

The team of Chris Brown, Carl Oliver, Troy McIntosh, Avard Moncur and Tim Munnings received the bronze medals after the USA team, the original bronze medal winner, was disqualified.

“It is for me to say to each of you, as you accept this award, that you really made it possible for younger ones to believe that they could do better and that they could compete at the level of the Olympics and the level of the world,” Prime Minister Perry Christie said to the team receiving their bronze medals during a ceremony at the British Colonial Hilton.
