The island’s highly successful Island Games team was honoured at a special reception hosted by the Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood.
A team of around 100 made the trip out to Bermuda for the games in July and came away with an impressive medal haul of 36 gold, 36 silver and 25 bronze, topping the medal table by a significant margin.
General team manager Jill Gillings said around 100 athletes had made the trip to Bermuda and of those about 60 had been able to attend the reception.
‘It was a good turn-out and some of the medal winners took their medals along with them too,’ she said.
‘There was a buffet provided and it was lovely to see the team honoured in that way.’
Mr Wood made a short speech at the reception and congratulted the athletes on their success and on the medals they had won.
Certificates from the International Island Games Association were awarded to those athletes who had achieved a new games record during this year’s event, though only swimmer Laura Kinley was able to attend the evening to collect hers in person.
