Delhi 2010

For some it was over before they left the Island, for others it was over before they competed.

The run up to the 19th Games in the heat and dust of the Indian subcontinent was disrupted by defections from the team at the last moment and by injuries that ruled out participation for two gymnasts on the eve of competition.

But it was far from total doom and gloom and the Island added the ninth and tenth medals to its haul – both bronzes – one for Mark Christian in the 40km cycling points race and the other to double trap clays marksman Tim Kneale.

Three archers made the team for the first time after the sport, last catered for in 1982, reappeared on the programme, and the Island was able to field a team in gymnastics. In the shotgun ranks, Clementine Kermode-Clague became the Island’s first female clays shooter.

Boxing had two representatives since the only previous occasion the sport was represented in 1958, the CGAIoM finally overcoming a reluctance to select representatives of the noble art, fearing the consequences of a bout going disastrously wrong.

Sadly, there was no athletic representation for the first time since Wales in 1958 and the lone swimmer named for the team, Grant Halsall, broke an elbow and was unable to travel.

Of the 31 athletes who made it to Delhi, gymnasts Olivia Curran and Adam Hedges were the last to do so, two days after the team was announced.

However Olivia’s dedication and training all came to nothing when the 19-year-old student, who had represented the IoM at the Youth Games in Australia in 2004, tore her right Alterior Cruciate ligament in a training accident.

Inspired by team-mate Adam Hedges’ exploits in the Melbourne Games, Olivia, who had overcome injuries earlier in the year and had deferred university for 12 months, was left to sit it out with the gymnastics squad’s other unfortunate, Joe Smith, 22, also a competitor in the Youth Games, who tore his right Achilles tendon, also while training the previous day.

Olivia Curran was told she needed one more qualifying score for Delhi the week before the deadline. On the day she was due to be take a recovery week holiday to Spain, she had to fly from Gatwick to Malta and compete in a competition with no coach for the first time.

Said Olivia: 'I fell off the bars then I fell off beam twice with all the nerves and pressure I’d put on myself. I cried for a few minutes and thought about how I now had no chance.

'Then somehow a switch flicked. I had fire in my belly and I told myself there was no way I was going home without the qualifying score. I did the floor routine and vaults of my life! I scraped the qualifying score. It was such a relief and I was very proud of how I’d managed to turn it around so well. You really can achieve what you want if you set your mind to it'!

Both kept the village medics busy, not least the team’s own physician, Frank Vaughan, the first doctor on the squad since Joe Ferguson (1978-1986), who worked hard alongside inexhaustible physios Isla Scott and Ruth Cooil.

The scare stories that abounded in the media about conditions in the accommodation blocks in the Games village were frighteningly accurate and it was only by dint of hard work and resolve that the team’s advance party secured a satisfactory outcome.

While some larger teams threatened not to participate and others looked at accommodating their athletes in hotels, Manx true grit - not to mention rubber gloves and plenty of cleaning materials - equated to a medal winning performance. India was not prepared for such a major sporting occasion, and the organisers’ indifference to the normal healthy requirements of Western nations in particular was very obvious.

With security a major issue, the Games village was virtually locked down permanently, and the worst monsoon in 60-odd years still underway as the early parties arrived, it is little wonder that the bulk of the teams had apprehensions about what they were letting themselves in for.

Sadly, despite being offered the opportunity of travelling to Delhi with the promise of a rapid return home if they found conditions unacceptable, cycling brothers Peter and Tim Kennaugh, 21 and 19 respectively, decided not to travel.

Peter, who had joined new British professional Team Sky at the start of the year, had won the British two-man Madison championship in 2009 with would-be team-mate Mark Christian and went on to win World and Olympic team pursuit golds with GB in 2012. He was awarded the MBE for his exploits.

Both said they didn’t want to risk their health and future careers. Tim, a member of the British Olympic Academy and a talented road and track man, commented: ‘To me the negatives just began to outweigh the positives. It’s just disappointing that we won’t get the chance to compete for a medal, especially coming from the Isle of Man, because medals are such a big thing.’

Their late decisions left the cycling squad with no hope of arranging replacements and resulted in the withdrawal of the team’s entry in the team pursuit where, almost certainly, they would have secured at least a bronze medal.

Mark Cavendish, now a seasoned professional with American team HTC, jetted in from Australia, where he had competed in the World road race championship, and promptly sounded off about the situation. ‘The guys who stayed away made a mistake,’ he told a national newspaper. ‘If you look after yourself you won’t catch anything.’

Boxers Dominic Winrow and Krystian Borucki, both claiming to be making their competitive swansongs, had to wait a week to get in the ring after their weigh-in, and both drew tough opposition. Heavyweight Winrow, a teacher born in Jersey and the first local boxer to reach an ABA final where he was beaten by future Olympic champion and World silver medallist Anthony Joshua, came up against British number one Simon Vallily (England) and endured a torrid time, suffering a stoppage 2.44 into the first round.

Polish-born Borucki, 31, a light-heavyweight, who like his team-mate had won a North West England championship, was also unable to further the Island’s cause after a 52-year wait for some action in the ring. Up against GB Development Team member Callum Johnson of Scotland, the amiable Borucki, in his 150th bout, was 0-7 on points after two rounds.

A massive effort in the final round saw him score a punch, but so did the Scot, and it ended 1-8 in the latter’s favour. Both their opponents went on to win gold medals.

2010  Aalin George
Taking aim: Archer Aalin George, the youngest member of the team at 14, won a host of international honours after her appearance in India. Sadly, there was no archery at the 2014 Games

The youngest member of the team at 14, archer Aalin George’s first international competition served as welcome experience for her future career, which has prospered ever since.

After qualifying a lowly 20th in the women’s compound class, albeit with a Manx record score of 670 points, Aalin, later named GB Young Archer of the Year, took her opponent to three ends before losing.

Team-mate Sarah Rigby caught the fifth seed in the knockout stage, gave a good account of herself, but ultimately didn’t make it through to the next round.

In the men’s compound, Adrian Bruce had a hard hill to climb after a poor qualification score and was unable to take advantage of an opponent who also struggled the previous day and didn’t shoot well in the knock-out phase.

With the team event also determining the selection of the finalists for the separate apparatus finals and for the men’s individual all-round event, there was considerable pressure on the gymnasts, especially after the cruel departure of Joe Smith.

With Delhi supposedly his competitive swansong, Alex Hedges, 24, repeated his success of 2006 and made the final 24 for the individual final in 21st place while Makuna Measuria, a student, was 27th and Alex Hedges 29th out of the 48 who took part. Although last of the nine teams, the IoM exceeded their target score of 210 points, managing 213.5.

In the individual final, Alex improved on his team/qualification score to notch 19th place in what manager Haresh Measuria described as a ‘real captain’s innings’.

Mark Cavendish, the world’s fastest sprint finisher, was full of praise for his team-mates after the road race which saw the Manx Missile finish seventh.

‘It was like losing on penalties’, said team coach Mike Doyle. The odds were stacked against the Manx squad but they put in a tremendous effort to try and deliver Cav to the final metres where the 15 times Tour de France stage winner could unleash his deadly power.

But up against the might of full-rime professionals from several big nations, the Manx ‘amateurs’ (Tom Black, Graeme Hatcher, Andrew Roche, Chris Whorrall and Mark Christian) couldn’t pull it off – but boy how they tried. Isolated, Cav tried desperately to reach the front of the race but came in alone, losing contact with the group that fought out the medals with three miles to run.

After a race that he described as being like a European Classic, Cav shook his team-mates hands and said he was sorry at the final outcome. ‘I asked them to give 100 per cent and they did. The Australians are a professional squad, we have a postman and a guy who works for the electricity department.

‘Six lads, from a tiny Island, with a tiny population putting the frighteners on one of the greatest cycling nations in the world. There was no medal, but it was another proud day to be Manx.’

Andrew Roche said the team were brilliant throughout the race. ‘That was the best team performance in all the six Games I’ve done. It’s great for us all to have the opportunity to ride for Cav.’

Manager Gary Hinds also paid tribute to the team: ‘The whole team rode above themselves and I’m proud of the passion, pride and commitment they showed. They devoted themselves to making sure Cav was in the shake-up for the closing miles. One by one they mixed it with the Aussies, Kiwis and South Africans.

‘The bigger nations just had greater strength in depth and that’s what eventually outgunned the valiant Mark.’

Andrew Roche, 39, wanted a top 10 finish but had to be satisfied with a top-class 12th place in the 40km (25-mile) individual time trial won by Tour de France stage winner David Millar of Scotland on a soulless out and home dual carriageway course.

Cav, much to the astonishment of his fellow professionals, teams personnel and watching media, returned some favours from the road race and acted as driver of Roche’s service car, toweling down his good friend and early mentor at the end of a tough ride, displaying his delight at being ‘one of the boys’.

Triple gold medallist Cameron Meyer of Australia was in a class of his own on the track, the junior world champion blowing the 20km scratch race apart with Mark Christian, the points race bronze medallist, and team-mate Chris Whorrall among those who were posted as non-finishers.

Tim Kneale doubled the team’s medal haul with a plucky performance in the individual double trap clays, bouncing back from the disappointment of fifth place out of 10 in the pairs event with Jake Keeling, who ended the individual contest in a creditable eighth place.

Keeling was disappointed not to have matched his high scoring from the pairs, where he hit 91 ex 100, the same as Kneale.

Dave Walton was joined by Neil Parsons this time round in the Olympic Trap events. In the pairs they finished eighth on 185 ex 200, Parsons bagging a personal best with 95 (including a maximum 25) and Walton 90. Walton, bronze medal winner in the same event in 2006 commented: ‘With Trevor Boyles we shot 183. We’ve beaten that by two clays and we were eighth, the standard of shooting is unbelievable.’

Parsons, with a sequence of 23, 25, 22, 24, 25, was oh so close to making the final of the individual event, notching a new Manx record with 119 ex 125 – a mere one clay away from a shoot-off to make the top six for a further 25 targets. A count back left him in 11th, just one shot behind Olympic champion Ossie McLean of Scotland.

Walton also started with a 25 but slipped to 21, 22, 24, 23 to leave him on 115, one of his best scores and enough for 20th place.

In the women’s event, Clementine Kermode-Clague, taking part in her first major international, suffered from nerves and lost her concentration. The daughter of regular Games Skeet shooter David Clague, Clementine, 21, a sports science student, was disappointed to finish on 56 ex 75 and 20th out of 21 entrants.

Skeet prospect Dan Shacklock, 16, a farmer, needed a couple of maximums on the second day after opening with 68 ex 75. However he dipped to an 18 but then rallied with a 24 to finish on 110 for 20th place out of 29 starters.

In the men’s 50m small-bore prone pairs, David Moore and Harry Creevy missed a bronze medal by five points, finishing seventh of 17, Moore finishing with a ‘ton’ for 585, but Creevy was not as consistent but just two behind his partner.

Moore was unable to replicate his silver medal winning shooting of 12 years ago in the individual, but then that’s hardly surprising considering his physical problems.

On form with 595 ex 600 at the International Shooting Championships in Germany where he was the best of the British with seventh place, he also posted some tremendous scores in the run up to the Games, topping it off with 598 ex 600, well above the selection requirement of 590.

But disaster was to follow at home just two weeks before departure when he fell on some stairs, striking his right (trigger) hand on a stair edge. The hand was further damaged on the journey to Delhi and the affable policeman was unable to achieve his ambition of becoming the first Manx competitor to win two medals.

Creevy, who represented GB at the World Championships at 300m in August (a distance he took to in the mid-noughties - he shot 598 and 600 at the opening of the European Cup in Denmark earlier in the year), was much better in the individual event and carded 589 for 12th – just one point away from a shoot-off that could have landed him his fourth final in five Games. Moore was the only competitor to shoot a maximum on the final ‘card’ and his 583 left him in 22nd place out of 35 entrants.

In the women’s 50m small-bore prone pairs, neither Lara Ward nor newcomer Gemma Kermode shot to their potential and finished last of the 10 teams.

Both girls had an inconsistent day in the individual event, Lara ending up 14th and Gemma 16th, the experienced international Lara bagging a ‘ton’ by way of consolation on her way to 579 ex 600.

Gemma also had a tilt at the 10m air rifle and finished 16th out of 17 while Steven Watterson took on the men’s event and end up 15th out of 16.

Badminton summoned together a very strong squad, the best performance coming from university student Josh Green, who won three of his four singles matches in the team event, the most notable scalp being that of top-rated Aussie Jeff Tho, his only loss being to a top World-ranked Malaysian.

The effects of four tough matches in 36 hours took its toll, and although manager Geoff Clague described them as ‘playing well’, the team flagged as the games progressed. They were determined to beat Seychelles, their best chance on paper, but went down and were disappointed with the 3/2 tally.

They also lost 5/0 to gold medallists Malaysia, 4/1 to Nigeria, and by a similar score to Australia.

Green, Matt Wilkinson, Cristen Callow and Kim Clague avoided the seeds in their individual and doubles matches. Green, however, was disappointed to lose to the Nigerian number two having beaten their number one in the team event, while Wilkinson went down to the African’s number one.

Kim Clague went out to the Canadian number two while Callow, who made the second round after beating a Barbadian on the TV court, was ousted by Singapore.

In the mixed doubles, Wilkinson and Clague lost in three to Mauritius while Green and Callow disposed of Falkland Islands and then had a fierce tussle with Northern Ireland who nicked it 2/1.

Sri Lanka saw off Clague and Callow in the women’s doubles while Green and Wilkinson beat the fiery Ghanaians 2/1 but were then outclassed by Singapore.

Cav conjures up some champagne

■ The colours of the contingents from 16 countries – Falkland Islands, St. Lucia, Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, St. Helena, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Gambia, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, Jamaica, Bermuda and Uganda - were hoisted together at the traditional village welcome ceremony.

■ The contingents were welcomed by village mayor, Dalbir Singh, the Games mascot Shera and volunteers. The delegates were presented with a traditional Indian stole (Angavastra).

■ The flags were raised by volunteers from the National Cadet Corps (NCC) while their national anthems were rendered. Replicas of the Queens Baton Relay 2010 were presented to the contingents.

■ The Manx management was forced to issue a clarification making it clear that the team would take part in the opening ceremony. It had been reported that the team would be withdrawn from the ceremony in light of unacceptable demands on the athletes. ‘The Isle of Man team would never ask their athletes to not attend. It is a great honour to represent the Island at this level and our athletes would never be denied this opportunity,’ a statement made clear.

■ On an organised day trip to the famed Taj Mahal, some of the Manx team took the opportunity to pose for pictures in front of the iconic marble palace. After the usual ‘say cheese’ group shots, team members got more creative. Archers posed with imaginary bows, while gymnasts did backflips and handstands.

■ Boxing team manager John Cain called Dominic Winrow over to join in. ‘Everyone is posing for photos showing what they have done at the games, Dom, so lie down on your back and I’ll take your picture,’ said the boss.

■ Team manager Trevor Taubman had been at pains to make sure that team members understood the importance of having their accreditation with them at all times. ‘It’s like a passport to the game village and venues, without it you will be really stuck,’ he emphasised on numerous occasions.’
So no prizes for guessing who was the first person to leave the village without theirs?

■ Mark Cavendish, who had been at odds with the owner of his professional cycling team over the value of his contract, asked, and got permission from the Juliet Holt, the president of the CGA of the IoM, to splash out on bubbly for the team at a reception the Island hosted at the Village ‘hotel’. He even mimed playing a keyboard-style instrument with a group of Indian musicians at the function, much to the amusement of all present.

■ Cycling squad coach Mike Doyle stopped smoking at Heathrow on the outward journey, a move made easier by the regular application of nicotine patches. As the cycling road race headed towards a dramatic conclusion, he gave his upper arm his normal pat to reaffix the patch in the heat and humidity of the IoM team’s pit. It wasn’t there! Panic ensued and for a minute or so the massed ranks of the cycling great and good were employed looking for the missing two-inch square of plaster, before it was found – stuck hard to the road surface right on the racing line.
