Minister congratulates Island Games team

Minister for Sport, Fabian Vinet, has congratulated Gibraltar’s participants at last week’s Island Games in Shetland.

He has issued the following statement to coincide with their return to Gibraltar:

“Each and every one of the sportsmen and sportswomen who represented Gibraltar deserves to be congratulated, not just for their magnificent performances, but also for the level of commitment, sportsmanship and team spirit displayed.

The months of preparation were amply rewarded and our athletes, coaches and officials were formidable ambassadors for the Rock among the friendly people of Shetland and among fellow Island Games participants.”

It was a privilege and an honour to be part of the Gibraltar delegation during the latter half of the Games.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate Freddie Chappory (President of the Gibraltar Island Games Association), Secretary and General Team Manager Linda Alvarez and other officials who contributed towards the excellent organisation.

I am confident that our improved sporting facilities and Government’s continued commitment to supporting sporting needs will help ensure Gibraltar’s continued development of local sports and even greater success at international competitions.”
