Forty-five athletes will compete in nine of the 17 sports.

The Commonwealth Games is the highest level at which a Manx sportsman or woman can represent the island.

General team manager Trevor Taubman said: "It's been a long journey to get here but all of the athletes and coaches feel very excited and well prepared."
