Members of the Isle of Man's Commonwealth Games team have met David Cameron at Downing Street, alongside athletes from all the home nations.
The youngest member of the Manx team in Glasgow, swimmer Niamh Robinson, 14, and captain Alex Hedges were amongst those who attended.
Robinson said: "It was great. When I was invited I jumped at the chance".
The Commonwealth Games is the highest level at which a Manx athlete can represent the island.
Team manager Trevor Taubman said: "The Isle of Man athletes were delighted to be included.
"They delivered some exceptional performances in Glasgow."
Assistant manager Chris Till said: "Mr Cameron was in Glasgow and had watched several of our gymnasts compete.
"He was very interested in their achievements."
Cyclist Peter Kennaugh won the island's only medal in Glasgow, a silver in the men's 40km points race, at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.
Gymnast Mukunda Measuria, shooter Rachel Glover and swimming manager Leonie Cooil also met the UK prime minister.
