GIGA: Bidding to host the Island Games.
THE Gibraltar Island Games Association (GIGA) is to submit a bid to host the 2019 Island Games, with the support of the Gibraltar government.
A government statement said GIGA “has commenced preliminary consultations and is currently in discussion with sports that could potentially form part of the 2019 programme.”
The move comes in the wake of the Rock’s athletes’ excellent performance at the 2015 games in Jersey, lifting three golds in shooting and three in athletics.
