Jan MurphyTucker Murphy is set to become a three-times Olympian for Bermuda after qualifying for the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, next month.

The cross-country skier, who represented Bermuda in Vancouver in 2010 and in Sochi, Russia, four years ago, has reached the B standard in the 15-kilometre freestyle.

Murphy, 36, has spent the past few months competing in Kandilli, Turkey, and Seefeld, Austria, in an attempt to reach his third successive Winter Olympics.

He will travel to Pyeongchang with his father, Mike Murphy, the president of the Bermuda Winter Ski Association, who will serve as the island’s chef de mission.

“Tucker got the lowest number of [qualifying] points he’s ever had since he started,” Murphy Sr said. “The lower the points, the better the result.

“He’s doing pretty well and he’s getting towards the first cut-off for the top, top groups, so he’s definitely improved.”
