Manchester will be Antigua’s sixth Games, but they are still looking for their first medal.

A team of 25 failed to land one in 1998 but the islands have a strong tradition in track and field events.

Did you know?
Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Lester Bryant Bird was an athlete of some repute during the late 1950s and 1960s.

He was a title-winning high-jump star on the American college circuit during that era, and won a bronze medal at the 1959 Pan-American Games.
