Island Games Team for Jersey


The Triathlon Team to compete in this year’s Nat West Island Games to be held in Jersey has been announced.


The team of eight, comprising 5 men and 3 women, includes 2 men from Bermuda’s bronze medal winning team of 2013. The rest of the team are all new to Island Games Triathlon.


The team are:


Antony Bell-Scott

Sam Brand

Juan Kinley

Andrew Nash

Joseph Ricciardi


Lynsey Elliott

Hannah Howitt

Karen Shimmin


Juan and Andrew are all previous competitors, with Juan being the senior statesmen holding a wealth of experience at all distances. He has Island Games medals from Badminton as well as Triathlon and is the team manager . Antony is a seasoned campaigner at Ironman as well as the shorter distances. Andrew has the experience of Glasgow 2014 under his belt.

Sam, from Peel is a final year student at Northumbria University and has shown great promise during the qualifying races.

Joseph, at just 18, is quickly making his mark in local and National competition.

The women, all from a swimming backgrounds, are new to Island Games Triathlon.

Lynsey competed in The Faroe Islands in 1989 as a swimmer.

Hannah is studying at York University and has competed as a yachtswoman as well as a swimmer at past Games.

Karen’s triathlon involvement started last year very much at the deep end of the sport when she competed long distance at Ironman Wales. The shorter 1,500m swim, 40km bike and 10km run should not pose a problem to her in Jersey.


The Triathlon will take place on Sunday 28th June at St. Aubin's Bay and will follow the established Jersey Triathlon course.

Isle of Man Triathlon would like to thank Microgaming for their continued support and to TYR who will be providing some sports kit. Trade Distribution has also been very helpful with getting race bikes to and from Jersey.
