St Lucia competed at the Games for the first time in 1978 and sent six athletes to Malaysia last time around.

They have competent athletes at a variety of sports but are yet to claim a podium place.

Did you know?
St Lucia recruited a number of British-based players to boost their 1998 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Much-travelled striker Ken Charlery and defender Warren Hackett were among those recruited through their heritage.
