The Bermuda Olympic Association is pleased to announce that Etienne Wolffe has been
selected as the National Olympic Committee (NOC) Assistant to Team Bermuda for the 2024
Paris Olympic Games. Bermuda will be assigned a total of 4 NOC assistants by the Paris
2024 Organizing Committee.
Etienne, a Bermudian, is a first-year student at the University of Ottawa in Canada. A
graduate of Warwick Academy, where he was the Student Leader of the Human rights project,
he is also an avid basketball player and trumpeter.
“Team Bermuda has never had a Bermudian NOC Assistant at a major festival before, so this
is a major coup for us. A unique opportunity for a French-speaking Bermudian to be in the
throes of the most prolific multi-sports event on the planet. The NOC Assistants are very
much a part of the team; they spend time in the village and at venues supporting and assisting
athletes, officials, guests, and support staff wherever they may be required.
Etienne’s fluency in French, familiarity with France, organizational skills, ability to work under pressure, and passion for sport will be an asset to Bermuda’s Olympic team as our athletes shoulder the mammoth task of providing excellent sporting representation for the country in Paris.
We are grateful to have him on board.” says Chef de Mission, Katura Horton-Perinchief.
Etienne posits that while he was hopeful that he may be selected for this position, he was also
realistic. “Because of the sheer volume of applications, when I received the news that I was
selected, I was in a state of shock but also filled with deep gratitude for the opportunity to
serve in this capacity. I look forward to contributing to the success of the Olympic Games, witnessing elite athletes performing their crafts and meeting people from different cultures around the globe.”
There were over 300,000 applications received for 45,000 volunteer positions at the Paris
2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Games will run from July 26 – August 11, 2024.
