Shooters on target too at Island Games

The Cayman Islands team had another big haul of medals at the NatWest Island Games in Jersey on Thursday. 

And it wasn’t just the track and field athletes and swimmers grabbing glory.  

Sprinter Tyrell Cuffy won the 100 meters in 10.72 seconds to add to the gold he won in the 200m earlier in the week. Lacee Barnes added discus gold to go with her shot put gold from earlier in the week and Alex Pascal won gold in the javelin with a throw of 65.03 meters.  

In beach volleyball, Stefania Gandolfi and Jessica Wolfenden got gold and the men’s pairing of Richard Campbell and Kirk Shervin Rankin took bronze.  

The shooters were on form too. Andrew McBean earned gold in the IPSC standard division and silver in the open division of the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) category. 

McBean also won bronze when he partnered Chanda Glidden in the IPSC Open Division team event.  

Lara Butler captured her third swimming medal, this time a silver, in the women’s 200m butterfly. Predictably, Olympic swimming brothers Shaune and Brett Fraser have the most medals in the Cayman team in any sport.  

So far Shaune will bring home three golds, two silvers and a bronze and his younger sibling has two golds and one apiece in silver and bronze.  

Friday is the last day of competition at the Games and so far Cayman has won 31 medals.  

Brett and Shaune Fraser are excelling at the Island Games.
