The Isle of Man's young gymnasts have picked up a medal at the NatWest Island Games in Aland. 

The women's team, consisting of Christine Stoddart, Lyndsey Beynon, Rebecca Johnson, Grace Harrison and Rhyanne Hancock, won silver in the floor and vault competition.

Bermuda took the gold, with the bronze going to the Faroe Islands.

At that stage the Isle of Man had one gold medal, two silvers and a bronze.
