The 2019 NatWest International Island Games are currently underway over in Gibraltar. The first Island Games were in 1985, bringing athletes together from different islands to compete and create links internationally. The Isle of Man has a team taking part, as usual, and there is daily coverage of events in our local media.
The Games are hosted by a different island each time. I think everyone wanted to go to the Bermuda games!
An interesting summary of the background to the games can be found on their website, an extract is reproduced here...
So far, on Day 1, the Isle of Man is in 3rd place with 4 Gold, 2 Silver and 7 Bronze - behind Jersey and Guernsey.
It looked to be quite warm over there for the 10K race.
