Veteran Isle of Wight athlete Andy Frost ended his Island Games career with silver in the Hammer event. His first ever Island Games was in Gotland.

The Isle of Wight’s men, Matthew Reed and Perron Phipps, won silver in the 50m Free Pistol event.

Today (Monday), the Isle of Wight’s men’s basketball team will be on the court against Gibraltar. The women’s football team is back in action against Gibraltar and there is table tennis action, against the Cayman Islands and Greenland.

After a 3-2 win against Jersey (thanks to a hatrick from Gemma Woodford), the women’s football team is back in action today (Monday). They play Gibraltar later.
