Twenty medals for Team Isle of Wight

July 11th, 2019 by

Team Isle of Wight has 20 Island Games medals after four days of competition in Gibraltar.

In judo, Dan Blinkhorn continued the team’s medal streak with gold in the men’s open category on Wednesday.

Dan Eckersley added to his steeplechase gold by taking bronze in the 5000m and Imogen Moss also won bronze in the 25m air pistol shooting.

In squash, Amelie Haworth and ladies’ doubles partner Fleur Orchard won bronze in their event.

Team Isle of Wight chairman Martin Goodall said: “We’re having an amazing Island Games.

“Medals are wonderful but we’ve also had so many competitors gaining personal bests.

“Across the board it has been a great success and hopefully we have some more to come.

“Our team is giving their best and that’s all I can ask for.

“We’ve had great support from back home, it means a huge amount, so thank you to everyone for getting behind us.”

In basketball, Team Isle of Wight signed off with a hard-fought 46-44 win against the Faroe Islands.
