Trevor Taubman says the team are hoping for their best ever performance

The Isle of Man's largest ever Commonwealth Games team is gearing up for next month's competition in Delhi.

The 34 strong team will compete in six sports including archery, badminton, cycling and shooting.

Team manager Trevor Taubman said: "I'd like to think we could win a medal in every sport we represent."

Four years ago in Melbourne the Isle of Man won two medals including a gold for cyclist Mark Cavendish in the 20km scratch race.

The Isle of Man have picked up eight Commonwealth Games medals since their first appearance in 1958.

With 71 nations expected to take part, the Games will open on 3 October.
