Flags bearers and water carrier confirmed for Island Games

Riley, Baxter and Worthington selected

It's been confirmed the Isle of Man will have two flag bearers at the upcoming Island Games in Gotland.

Athlete Hannah Riley will carry it at the opening ceremony, while cyclist Elliot Baxter will have the honour at the closing ceremony.

Both of them competed at their first Island Games in 1999, when they were last held in Gotland.

Hannah has won a total of 18 individual and relay medals at the seven games she has competed at.

Elliot has picked up 22 individual and team medals in his six games.

Traditionally the youngest member of the team is chosen to carry the Isle of Man water in the opening ceremony.

This time it is 13-year-old Lucy Worthington, a gymnast.
