BNAA Tribute to Mike Sharpe

The Bermuda National Athletics Association would like to take this opportunity to formally extend our condolences to the family and friends of Mike Sharpe. We were shocked and saddened to learn of his passing and this is a devastating blow to the track and field community. Mr. Sharpe has been a staple in the track and field community since he was a part of the Bermuda Carifta Team in the 1970s as a seven time medalist.

Mike excelled as a Jumper and Sprinter and went on to attend University of Florida on an athletic scholarship becoming SEC Champion in both the Long Jump and the Triple Jump events. He would go on to compete in the 1976 Montreal Olympics as part of the 4x100m team.

Following his collegiate athletic career, Mike could not get away from sport and became a well respected sports journalist in Bermuda and maintain a keen interest in the sport of track and field. He always made sure to highlight the BNAA program as well as up and coming track and field athletes in Bermuda. He created an outstanding legacy and the BNAA would like to take this opportunity to honour him.

Professionally as well as personally, Mike was engaging pleasant man who supported all sports and their athletes. His voice, his support and his energy will be missed.
