Island Games 2019

Huge congratulations to all of the Isle of Wight Athletic Club members who represented the Island in Gibraltar this year.

In particular the support team at the Games – who gave up their own time to allow the athletes to perform at their best. Nick Groocock, Paul Simpson, Nicola Canning, Joni Simpson all helped deliver a superb Athletics team – many of whom were at their first International competition.
