Trust Officer off to Gotland for the NatWest Island Games

22 Jun 2017

Trust Officer, Jake Michel will be representing Jersey by playing Basketball in the NatWest Island Games in Gotland.

We've had the opportunity to ask him a few questions about his experience before he heads off.

Age: 23

Job: Trust Officer, Fairway Group

Sport: Basketball

How did you get into Basketball?

By chance really, I started playing at lunch times in secondary school and I've been playing ever since.

How much has the team been training?

We have been training twice a week as a team and I have been doing additional conditioning in between.

Predictions for the games?

We hope to progress to the semi-finals so we have a chance of achieving a medal.

What are you most looking forward to?

I am mostly looking forward to visiting Gotland and playing against some high quality teams.

What do you love about the game?

The unity of the sport. Being part of a close knit team when you win it is a great feeling. However, when your team loses everyone knows how to pick up the pieces and move on again as a unit.

How do you all work together as a team?

The majority of the team are around the same age which means we all get on really well with each other on and off the court. WIth it being such a young team it shows great promise for the future of the squad and everyone is looking forward to seeing how we can all progress together.

Sport hero and why?

I don't tend to have a sporting hero. I admire a wide range of sports and sportsman. To pick one would be tough.
