First Medals For Isle Of Wight's Island Games Team

26 Juin 2017

Hammer thrower and Island Games stalwart Andy Frost won the team's third medal by taking another silver, although it ended his unbeaten run, having won gold at every games since he first competed at Gotland in 1999.

The early charge was led by Jersey's triathletes, who, between them, secured all four gold medals on offer. His first ever Island Games was in Gotland.

In the men's race, Dan Halksworth added to his staggering list of sporting achievements by retaining men's individual gold, while 18-year-old Ollie Turner and Demri Mitchell helped secure team gold.

Dozens of firefighters were involved in the effort to reduce the flames, with multiple departments responding. A 3 alarm fire sent plumes of black smoke into the skies that could been seen from the Garden State Parkway.

Last night saw the opening ceremony take place.

Island pride also shone through at the Gutavallen athletics track, where reigning Island Games champion Jason Fox added another medal to his collection - a bronze in the men's high jump. The women's football team is back in action against Gibraltar and there is table tennis action, against the Cayman Islands and Greenland. The Isle of Wight's badminton team had a mixed start, with a 5-0 win over the Falkland Islands following defeats against Greenland and the Isle of Man.
