Manchester will be Norfolk Island’s fifth Games – they have been at every one since 1986.

Their only medal so far has come in 1994 when Carmen Anderson took bronze in the ladies singles lawn bowls.

That is by far their strongest discipline although their team of 21, which went to the 1998 Games, took part in a wide variety of events.

Did you know?
Angela Keogh competed in the 20km walk for Norfolk Island in the 2001 World Championships in Edmonton.

The 39-year-old finished so far back that they had time to run the hurdles before clearing the track for her arrival in the Commonwealth Stadium to a standing ovation.
