Cayman’s four Olympic heroes returned home to accolades from all their admirers.
Track aces Ronald Forbes, Cydonie Mothersill and the swimming Fraser brothers Shaune and Brett made sure they were in Grand Cayman for a dinner in their honour at the Ritz-Carlton on Friday.
Only a select few were invited but the Olympians had a great time and thoroughly appreciated the tribute.
Mothersill said: ‘That dinner was an A-class event. It was such a nice feeling for us four to come home and for the government to show how much they appreciate what we do.
‘It was such a nice feeling that everybody acknowledged that we did something special.
‘While we did not bring home a medal each of us performed well in our own right. It was amazing what the government did.
‘It was the first time that had been done and much appreciated. I had a blast. It was a nice feeling that Kurt Tibbetts, Alden McLaughlin and all the MLAs took time out of their busy schedules to acknowledge what we did.’
