Reigning Island Games champion Dan Halksworth has been included in Jersey's triathlon squad for the 2017 Games in Gotland.

He had "retired" from triathlons to focus on cycling but returned to win the Jersey Triathlon this summer.

Tom Perchard, Demri Mitchell, Michael Charlton and Ollie Turner join Halksworth in the team.

Jo Gorrod, Philippa Worth, Katie Silva, Della Roderick and Mel Messervy make up the women's squad.

Gorrod was Jersey's top female performer at the 2015 Island Games, taking silver on home soil, before clinching the Jersey Triathlon title in July in two hours, 14 minutes, 44 seconds.

The Gotland Island Games run from Saturday, 24 June to Friday, 30 June 2017.
