Athletics

Guernsey sprinter Kylie Robilliard is in confident mood ahead of the Island Games having recently broken the 100m island record.

Robilliard recorded a time of 11.96 in Loughborough last week, comfortably beating the previous record of 12.09.

She told BBC Guernsey: "I'm extremely happy about breaking the 100m record as not only is it a national record, it's also my personal best.

"This 100m time is a by-product of my training for the 100m hurdles."

She added: "I'm very excited to dip under the 12 second barrier because I'm actually contending with some of the specialist sprinters within the UK now."
