The Caymanians also had a good night on the track, with Cayman Islands twins Carl and Carlos Morgan winning the gold and silver in the long jump, and Cayman’s Alexander Pascal winning the gold in the javelin, with his throw of 70.66 breaking the old Island Games record of 68.80.

An athlete from the Welsh island of Ynys Môn won the gold in the 5000m, and the contingent from Ynys Môn were clearly thrilled, and continued to keep singing their island’s anthem well after the medal ceremony had ended.


Bermuda ended the fourth day of competition with 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.
