Track team stole the show

Congratulations to the Cayman Islands track team that brought back so much glory from the NatWest Island Games.

Of the seven gold medals, four silvers and three bronzes won in Aland, near Finland, most of the medals came from the track stars.

Unlike in previous Island Games, the swimmers did not bring back a fist full of medals.

Eduardo Torres took gold in the men’s tennis and all the other golds came in athletics; Wallace Lyttle (100 metres), Robert Ibeh (200m), men’s 4x100m relay, Junior Hines (400m hurdles), Perry Anglin (high jump) and Ashleigh Nalty (women’s high jump).

The silvers came from Michael Letterlough (hammer), Alexander Terry (women’s discus), Omar Wright (high jump) and the men’s team tennis.

The three bronzes were won by Steven Reid (100m), Samantha Widmer (women’s golf) and sporting team shooting.

The track team returned on Monday and there was a big welcoming party for them at the Owen Roberts International Airport.
