The Seychelles have competed in the Games since 1990 and sent a team of 18 to Kuala Lumpur.

They won two silver medals in Malaysia to add to the bronze won in 1994 and all their successes have come in boxing.

Did you know?
The Seychelles hosted the under-17 African Nations Cup last year but, in their three group matches, scored just one goal and conceded a total of 16.

Their performances failed to impress scouts from Manchester United who had been sent to unearth any possible talent at the tournament.
