Marked Man Medals Three Times

with one comment

Tim has been doing a great job of keeping everyone posted on how our son-in-law Geri is doing at the Island Games this year, but he says that I should add my two cents with this tidbit.  I of course googled Geri’s name and came up with this mention in his hometown newspaper Bermuda Sun.  They were concerned that because Geri had won Gold at the Shetland Games that he might be marked as the guy to beat. He probably was, because the top four in his first race all had the same time.  His second race he won the bronze which was the race he won the gold in in 2005.  But then he came back to help his team win a bronze–something that they didn’t do in Shetland.   Doesn’t surprise me.  That is one of the things we love best about him.  He pitches right in and will help with anything, do anything to make things better, and keep us all laughing heartily while we work together.

Gold, Silver, Bronze, all precious metals, but in our book, he is a “gem.”
