JASMIN Smith came 5th in her 100m medley prelim this morning, so she will once again compete in the finals tonight.

If she’s successful, it will be her third medal in Guernsey.

The Shetland squad will be back on the football pitch to face Greenland at 2.30pm today.

Despite their triumphant win against the Falklands on Tuesday night, it was not enough to progress them past the group stages.

Footballers’ medal hopes dashed, but plenty more opportunity for blues today

Instead they will play Greenland to determine which team will place 7th and 8th.

It’s also the final day for the sailors after a busy five days of races.

In the ILCA 6 category, Shetlander Willum Leask is currently in 17th place and his team mate Luke Bullough is 21st.

Darren Forrest has managed to break the top ten in the ILCA 7 race, sitting at 9th at the moment whilst James Morris is 14th.


Badminton mixed doubles got going this morning.

In the round of 64, Thomas Calder and Stephanie Keith lost to Isle of Man, whilst Joe Thomas and Ruth Anderson lost to Gibraltar.

Shona Mackay is unfortunately suffering from an injury, so herself and Ramsay Hogg did not play.

Dean Guthrie and Chloe Hitchin however, won 2-0 against northern rivals Orkney.

Soon they’ll go up against the Faroes in the round of 32.

Table tennis men and women’s doubles are also underway.

The men lost all their matches, whilst the women were a little more successful.

Kay Adamson and Joan Smith won against the Isle of Wight players and so they will continue to the round of 16 to also play Faroe.

Tomorrow Team Shetland will compete in the mixed doubles matches.
