Daniel Halksworth has been British Ironman champion and won gold at the Commonwealth Youth Games in swimming

Daniel Halksworth will compete in his fourth sport at an Island Games after being selected as part of Jersey's road race cycling team for Gotland 2017.

The former professional Ironman racer has already been selected to defend the triathlon gold he won in 2015.

He also competed in the 10,000m at the last Island Games.

He won eight Island Games gold medals as a swimmer and represented Jersey at that sport, and in triathlon, at the 2006 and 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Jersey's women's team will be without Kim Ashton - who won gold in every event she entered in 2015 - after she announced in October that she would not be going to Gotland.
