Jo Randall, of Newport’s Love Running shop, said: “Newport Business Association is proud to support the 2019 Island Games, and wishes every member of Team Isle of Wight a most enjoyable, exhilarating and successful event.”

The donation followed a meeting between business association members and the Isle of Wight’s Island Games chairman, Martin Goodall, last summer.

Martin said: “We are really grateful to Newport Business Association for the donation.

“Competing in the Island Games is the pinnacle for many of our athletes - it’s like a mini  Olympics and a very special event to be involved in.

“We would hate for anyone who has been selected on merit to miss out over money, so any financial support we receive makes a huge difference.”

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.
