Estonian middle- and long-distance runner Kaur Kivistik took gold in the 10,000 meters at the XIX Natwest Island Games on Guernsey, the Channel Islands.

Saaremaa is one of the 24 islands competing, hence Kivistik's participation.

He won the 10,000m with a time of 31:10.50, ahead of Corrin Leeming and Alan Corlett (both representing the Isle of Man)

Saaremaa has taken a total of three golds, one silver and one bronze in the games so far, all of them in the athletics category.

Events in golf, basketball and cycling also feature in the games.

A total of 24 islands, mostly either integral parts of a larger country (as in the case of Saaremaa, or the Isle of Wight (England)), or dependencies, protectorates, self-governing autonomous zones etc. (including the Åland/Ahvenanmaa islands). They also range vastly in size, from Sark, in the Channel Islands (5.45 square kilometers), to the somewhat larger Greenland (over 2 million square kilometers in area), as well as in population (Sark again has a population of under 500, Greenland, around 56,000).

The other competing islands, in alphabetical order, are: Alderney (Channel Islands), Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Faroe Islands, Frøya (Norway), Gibraltar, Gotland (Sweden), Gozo (Malta), Greenland, Hitra (Norway), Jersey (Channel Islands), Menorca, Orkney (Scotland), Sark (Channel Islands), Shetland Islands (Scotland), St Helena, Western Isles (Scotland), Ynys Môn/Anglesey (Wales).
