Osian Perrin stormed to an incredible win in the men’s 5,000m at the athletics stadium. The pack started slow, and after a few laps Osian decided to put his foot on the gas and stretched out to a huge lead. His pace increased as the race went on and the gold was his, and along with the Island Games Record with it in a time of 14:11.85. Also on the track Ffion Roberts added to her 400m gold with a silver in the women’s 200m. She clocked a PB with a time of 24.54. Finishing a hugely impressive 4th in the women’s 200m, 17 year old Eli Jones also bagged a PB of 25.15.
Men Shoot For Bronze
In the shooting two of our male shooters picked up a fantastic bronze medal. Frederick Roberts shot at 88 out of 100 and David Taverner picked up an 89 of 100 giving a combined total of 177. That was enough to pick up third in the English skeet team. A fantastic achievement from the guys.
Dom-inating Day On The Water
At the Guernsey Yacht Club, Dominic Breen-Turner has had a fantastic day winning both of his races in the ILCA 6 category. He is now positioned in second place and is in a good position ahead of tomorrow’s final two races. In the ILCA 7 category, Josh Metcalfe is still in medical condition sitting in 6th with two races to go. These two guys, combined with Ryan Seddon and Michael Thorne’s results, see Ynys Môn sitting in 3rd position in the Team Event.
Sports Round Up
Adrienne Edwards and Nia Roberts picked up the indoor bowls team first victory of the week with a terrific Pairs victory over the Falklands by 16-13. Great work ladies! Gwenno Hughes raced in the women’s cycling road race. A field of 19 took to the streets but a breakaway of Guernsey and Jersey riders stayed out in front for most of the race, taking the medals. It was still a solid ride for Gwenno, finishing 7th. The golfers continue to plug away on a challenging course; Jack Carter sits in 14th with the team moving up to 8th. A couple of solid rounds over the next couple of days and they could still challenge for a medal. Hywyn Jones continues to have a good meet in the pool, clocking a PB of 29.69 in the men’s 50m breaststroke AND another PB in the 100m individual medley with a time of 01:08.29. Our other swimmer, Elliot McCarrick, got himself a PB of 32.84 in the 50m breaststroke.
