The shooting competition has also seen the British Overseas Territory of St. Helena — which has a population of only 4,200 people — make their best ever showing at the NatWest Island Games, capturing two medals in shooting.

Simon Henry and Carlos Yon won a silver medal in the 50-metre Three Position Small Bore Rifle Team event, marking the first Island Games silver for St. Helena. Simon Henry then followed that up with another silver medal in the 50m 3 Position Smallbore Rifle individual event.

The Government of St. Helena issued a press statement about both medal wins, and according to a St. Helena website the shooters medal wins created a “buzz” in St. Helena.

Bermuda ended the fourth day of competition a total of 39 medals. Isle of Man leads the medal table with 55, Jersey follow with 52 medals, while Guernsey has a total of 40 medals.
