THE Isle of Wight has now amassed 20 Island Games medals after four days of competition in Gibraltar.

In judo, Dan Blinkhorn was yesterday's hero — continuing the team’s medal streak with gold in the men’s open category.

Dan Eckersley added to his 3,000m steeplechase gold by taking bronze in the 5,000m, while Imogen Moss added another medal to her tally with bronze in the 25m air pistol shooting.

In squash, Amelie Haworth and ladies’ doubles partner Fleur Orchard won bronze in their event.

Amelie, 13, of Godshill, now has two medals in her first Island Games after her bronze in the ladies' singles event.

Team Isle of Wight chairman, Martin Goodall, said: “We’re having an amazing Island Games.

“Medals are wonderful but we’ve also had so many competitors gaining personal bests.

“Across the board it has been a great success and hopefully we have some more to come.

“Our team is giving their best and that’s all I can ask for.

“We’ve had great support from back home, it means a huge amount, so thank you to everyone for getting behind us.”

In basketball, Team Isle of Wight signed off their games with a hard-fought 46-44 win against the Faroe Islands.

Today, day five of the Island Games, and Team Isle of Wight will be hoping to pick up where they left off yesterday (Wednesday).

Bridget Fryer and Ellie Lovett will compete in the women’s discus final, while Abi Lacey and Grace Poynter are among those taking to the swimming pool.

Shooting stars Matt Reed and Perron Phipps are back in pistol action targeting a hat-trick of gold medal in these games.

There are sailing and cycling finals too.
