The Macphee sisters of South Uist have clinched three more medals for the Western Isles in the international island games.

Kerry won gold for coming first home in the mountain bike race with a time of just under 46 minutes.

Kirsty finished two and a half minutes later with Nùria Pico of Menorca breathing down her neck.

The sisters’ combined efforts means the Western Isles were also awarded first spot for the team prize.

This is the second time this week the siblings pulled off the same feat - they won success in the cycling events on Tuesday.

The Western Isles have now won 12 medals at the games in Sweden - eight gold, three silver and one bronze.
