Sport / Second medal in Guernsey won by swimmer and third on athletics pitch

JASMIN Smith has secured Shetland’s second medal at this year’s Island Games, and Katie Dinwoodie follows with a third.

She won the bronze medal for women’s 50m breaststroke this evening (Monday).

Smith’s fellow swimmers were not as lucky, with Joe Carter placing 5th in the men’s 200m butterfly.

Magnus Bullough also came 5th in the men’s 200m individual medley.

Finlay Geddes and Cailean Johnson placed 10th and 11th in the men’s 1500m freestyle earlier.

Smith is no stranger to the games however, as she also scored Team Shetland another bronze in Gibraltar back in 2019.

Shetland’s third medal quickly followed with another bronze, this time from Katie Dinwoodie on the athletics pitch.

She placed third tonight in the women’s 100m final in a new Shetland record of 12.16 sec.

Her fellow Shetland team member Sophie Grant finished 7th in the same race in a new personal best of 12.60.
