The island’s Commonwealth Games Association has announced the team which will represent the Isle of Man at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
The games run from July 28 to August 8.
CGA President Basil Bielich has said: ‘The CGA would like to congratulate all the athletes selected to represent the Isle of Man.
‘Our sporting community has risen to the challenges presented by covid and the restrictions on participation in sport over the last two years, and we believe we have been able to select a very strong team to represent the Island.
‘For these Games, we implemented a new process of selection which was designed to enable athletes to plan their preparation and training programmes with more certainty and confidence. We have also been extremely grateful for the support that Isle of Man Sport has given us. We are working closely together to give our athletes as much support as possible.
‘Our plans for our participation in Birmingham and supporting activities are well underway. The Queen’s Baton Relay visits the Isle of Man on June 15-16, and our CGA fundraiser dinner at the Villa Marina on June 16 offers everyone the chance to support Team Isle of Man before they head to Birmingham.’
