Representatives from The Bahamas Gymnastics Federation are to take part in the Pan American Games being held in Toronto, Canada in 2015. It is the first time that The Bahamas has been invited in Gymnastics to the high-level regional competition and comes after Gymnastics was among the smaller Olympic sports in The Bahamas selected by The Bahamas Olympic Committee (BOC) to participate in the Pan American Sports Festival.

BOC Secretary General Romell Knowles said that “the invitation to Pan Am Games for gymnastics is a dividend return from Bahamas Olympics' decision to invest in some of the country’s smaller sporting Federations by sending them to the Pan American Sports Festival.” The Festival is a multi-sport event organized by the Pan American Sports Organization (PASO) for athletes from the Americas as a development and training event to aid countries with their preparations for the larger Games competitions.

Part of the Bahamas Gymnastics squad who visited the Festival are pictured with BOC officials: from left are BOC Secretary General Romell Knowles, gymnast Simone Hall, gymnastics coach Trevor Ramsey, Bahamas Gymnastics Federation President Barbara Thompson and BOC President Wellington Miller.

Among other smaller Bahamian sports Federations and Associations who were singled out for this type of advancement by the BOC were archery, handball, rowing, athletics, cycling, judo, basketball, soccer, volleyball, boxing, equestrian, bowling and swimming.
