IoM Commonwealth Games team announced

 The Isle of Man's team for the Commonwealth Games has been revealed.


The 46 competitors were named at a launch at Mylchreest's garage in Douglas.


They'll be competing in nine sports and disciplines; athletics, badminton, boxing, cycling, gymnastics, lawn bowls, shooting, swimming and triathlon.


The sports the Isle of Man are traditionally best in - cycling and shooting - have the largest numbers of competitors, and also our best medal hopes.


The men's road racing team looks particularly strong, with stars Mark Cavendish and Peter Kennaugh joined by Mark Christian, Joe Kelly and Andrew Roche.


There's also a welcome return for Johnny Bellis, who'll be competing on the track with Christian, Kennaugh and both Joe and Jake Kelly.


The shooters include Tim Kneale, who picked up a bronze medal in the double trap clay shooting at the 2010 games in Delhi.
