GIBRALTAR 2019 NATWEST INTERNATIONAL ISLAND GAMES XVIII

Once every two years, thousands of athletes from across the globe — from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, the North Atlantic to the Caribbean — come together to compete in the NatWest International Island Games.

Months of rigorous training are put to the test over a week of events as competitors swim, shoot, sprint and swing their way to victory. From target and endurance events to team sports such as sailing, basketball and beach volleyball, the NatWest International Island Games holds competitions in a diverse range of sports and is open to competitors as young as 13.
