Notes:
1. Result as per thecgf.com except that Alf Oddie was listed as 6058 hours instead of points, Steve Partington was omitted from 2002 and Brenda Walker was listed in
1990 as a nonstarter in the 10,000 metres (excluded from the list as I am certain that other athletes have also been entered for events that they have not started).
2. No attempt (at this stage) to research better performances attained in earlier rounds – the thecgf.com site only seems to show the result from last round of competition.
3. Position column is the position in a final. Walkers, 3,000, 10,000 metres and marathon runners competed in straight finals as did Alf Oddie in the decathlon. Martin Aram is the only athlete to qualify for a final.
4. Ian Hodgkinson also represented Australia and David McCutcheon represented Scotland.
5. 100 yards and 220 yards were officially listed as 100 yard dash and 220 yard dash.
6. Brenda Walker was selected for the 1994 Commonwealth Games but withdrew due to injury and did not travel. Stephanie Quirk was selected and travelled to the 1986 Commonwealth Games but withdrew due an injury sustained in Edinburgh. Were there any other athletes selected who did not compete?
7. 26 of the 63 performances have been in race walking events including five dnf’s and two dq’s. 6 athletes have competed in the 100 metres (plus 2 in the 100 yards). 5 athletes have started the marathon (all finishing).
8 The 7 women who have represented the Isle of Man are 2 sprinters, 2 middle distance runners, 2 walkers and a marathon runner. No female field event athlete has ever competed.
9. Danaa Myhill competed in 1986 and also in 1994 under her married name of Callow.
10. Alf and Maureen Oddie are brother and sister. Steve and Cal Partington are husband and wife.
Background to research: Its always surprised me that there is no definite list of Manx performances in the Commonwealth Games, or if there is one I have wasted my time! cga.im/games_history.asp states
that 70 competitors have represented the Isle of Man which only leaves 34 for all the other sports who have competed up to 2006 – this is surely too low. There is, however, a useful reference of all Isle of Man medal winners on that page.
