This bronze medal is the first olympic medal that Mauritius brings back home. This is a tremendous win for Mr Julie, his supporters and his coach. The whole country was right to believe Bruno when he promised to bring a medal back. Mauritius is a place where dreams do come true. Welldone Bruno and keep up with the good work!

A believer.
