Virgin Islands 2016 Summer Olympics ScheduleThe 2016 Summer Games are underway in Rio and the USVI (ISV) has 7 incredible athletes representing our little island territory. Having a smaller pool of athletes vying for positions on the National Team means that our top local athletes have a better chance of getting to the Olympics. But don’t let that fool you, they still have to qualify in their sport to compete – so these are some stellar athletes who are clearly tops in their sport.

  • Caylee Watson (St Croix) Swimming: Women’s 100m Backstroke
  • Cy Thompson (St Thomas) Sailing: Laser Men
  • Clayton Laurent Jr. (St Thomas)  Boxing: Men’s Super Heavy
  • Eddie Lovett Athletics: Men’s 110m Hurdles
  • Rex Tullius Swimming: Men’s 200m Backstroke
  • LaVerne Janet Jones-Ferrette (St Croix) Athletics: Women’s 200m
  • Muhammad Halim (St Croix) Athletics: Men’s Triple Jump

Because the Olympics use the classic Latin version of a countries name to create their 3-letter designation – The Virgin Islands Olympic Team wears ISV or Isla Virgenes. You can find team information on the official Team ISV Rio Olympics page and be sure to follow the VI Olympics Committee on Facebook for updates and behind the scenes coverage!
