Rest of Day Three

All the other highlights from Tuesday

Michelle Ryan secured a sliver medal in the hammer with a throw of 40.32m - a great result but that throw still 5 metres of Isle of Wights' Amy Church's new Island Games Record.

In Sailboarding, well done to Michael Millerhas who took silver in the long distance race.

Good news from the sailing with two Jerseymen in medal positions in the Laser Standard Rig. Jeff Speller is 2nd and Joel Lucas third with just 2 races to go of 9. Brett Wright from Bermuda has a seven-point advantage.

Well done to young Mariana Agathangelou, who's reached the womens badminton singles final, where she'll meet Guernsey's Elena Johnson, guaranteeing at least a silver medal, while Kimberley Ashton earned a bronze by reaching the semis, only to go out to Johnson. None of the Jersey men got past the last 16 stage.

Our lady volleyball team lost 3-0 to Sarreema in the top of the table group match, but still finished second to secure a first-ever semi-final place. They meet the Faroe Islands.

For our volleyball men, they too had a crunch game to avoid being bottom of their group - apart from the fact they'd like to whop Guernsey into the bargain. They didn't and lost 3-1.

After the disappointment of finishing a slow as eighth in the team event, our table tennis players are simply excelling in the singles. Trevor Le Febre, Eugene Ellis and Paul Marshall, and Dawn Buckley all won their group, and all won all their matches - a 100 per cent record between them - but sadly only Chris Corfield will not qualify.

The ladies bowls pairing of Myrtle le Marquand and Eileen Vowden are joint top of their group with Guernsey, and the two pairings meet tomorrow for a group decider. Melvyn Birch and Michael Videgrain have also won their first two matches, and meet Ynys Mon to decide the group winner.

Squash, and the Ladies singles reaches the finals part of the competition with unbeaten Ronnie Jubb meeting Alison Strobridge in the last 16, while Kate Cadigan plays Kerry Pottinger of the Shetland islands.

In the mens golf competition, the leading Jersey player is Seb Brown, whose lying in 17th place after shooting an 81, that's 10 shots off the leader Kevin Moore from the Isle of Man. The Jersey team are currently lying ninth overall, with three more days of golf to go.
