Olympians for Dominica at the 2012 Summer Games in London, England
Dominica had two athletes competing in 2012 Summer Games, Luan Gabriel and Erison Hurtault.
Luan Gabriel competed in the Women’s 200m sprint. She placed 9th with a time of 24.12 seconds, but did not advance past the first round. What an extraordinary effort for this 16-year-old young lady from Roseau!
Erison Hurtault ran the Men’s 400m race in 46.05 seconds, but did not advance to the second round. Erison also had the honour of being Dominica’s flag bearer for the 2012 Games. This was his second Olympics, having run in the 400m in the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, China.
