Saint Kitts and Nevis competed in the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Games held in the British Crown Dependency of Isle of Man from 7 to 13 September 2011. Their participation marked their second Commonwealth Youth Games appearance.[1][2] Saint Kitts and Nevis sent a delegation consisting of three athletes (two men and one woman) who participated in three athletic events. This was a decrease in the number of participating athletes from the nation's last appearance at the Games when six athletes were sent to Pune.[3] Adrian Williams earned a bronze medal in the javelin throw, with a best throw of 63.02 m. Williams was the only medalist for Saint Kitts and Nevis, and helped his nation to manage a place in the medal table. Saint Kitts and Nevis ranked last (at 22nd spot) with nine other Commonwealth Games Associations.[4] This was also the first medal for Saint Kitts and Nevis in the history of the Games.[5]

Athletics[edit]

All the athletes sent by Saint Kitts and Nevis participated in track and field events. Both the male athletes, Adrian Williams and J’Anthon Silliday, competed in the javelin throw; while the sole female athlete, Noah Herbert, represented Saint Kitts and Nevis in the sprint races (100 and 200 m).[6]

Men

Adrian Williams succeeded in winning a bronze medal at the javelin event, with a best throw of 63.02 m. J’Anthon Silliday managed only a best throw of 52.53 m, ranking him eighth in the final standings.[7]
