Support Fund Gets Huge Boost

At the start of planning for the Gotland Games we identified that the cost of attending would be about double that of attending the previous games in Jersey. There was a fear that this would mean that some talented sports people would miss the opportunity to have their games moment not because they lacked skill or talent but because they lacked the funds.

What does it take to be a swimmer for the Isle of Wight in the NatWest Island Games? In short, it takes a lot of hard work and commitment. Megan King gets up early, she is the the pool for training at 6am, 3 times a week, swimming for 1.5 hours before heading to school and then 4 times a week she is back in the pool after school or in the evening for a further 2 hours in the water. Her weekends consist of more early morning training or competitions on the mainland.
