Excellent news. Mandy is entered for the Germany 25K in the week of 20th August, albeit down at 189th in the alt list, and Rotterdam 15K where she is 26th alt. Edit: I missed the Swiss 15K where she is 4th alt

In fact Braunschweig is now her only entry for this week, as Mandy has wd from the 2 15ks. That can be interpreted in different ways in respect of her readiness for returning, but if she says in the list I would have thought she may find her way into qualifying.

Amanda will have a rare chance to play for her home territory on home soil in July when she represents Team Gibraltar in the Natwest International Island Games between 6 and 12 July.

Never short of determination, she's bounced back, looking stronger than ever and in the form of her life... so what can we expect from her at the Games?
"Gold - we're hoping she can take us all the way" Team Manager Jeremy Poggio says with a cautious undertone.

Just to note Amanda is into the gold medal match at the island games. As top seed she has yet to be challenged (and hasnt dropped a game yet), though I dont recognise any of the names of her opponents so that perhaps isnt a shock. Shes also in the womens doubles final and has already won gold in the womens team event. It seems she opted not to compete in the mixed doubles which is fair enough.

Amanda kept her unblemished record defeating Tzvetelina Hevren of Gotland in the final 6-0 6-0 to win gold. Onwards to the 25k in Imola I guess but no doubt a special moment witnessed by friends and family.

I should have known some people on here would already be onto this before I tweeted it biggrin

Even the player she beat in the final (the no. 3 seed) doesn't seem to have a record on ITF but I think a 48-game winning streak is pretty impressive whatever the opposition (unless that opposition is me, in which case 8 golden sets would be more like it LOL) It must be all too easy to lose one game in 48.

 

Amanda and partner won the doubles final too, so she ended up with 3 golds altogether

 

Edit: I was hoping that embedding the tweets would show the associated pics too but it looks like you'll have to click the links to get those, unfortunately.
