I found these guys:

Cyprus will field a strong team in Melbourne, including defending Skeet Shooting gold medallist Antonis Nicolaides, and Skeet world No 5 George Achilleos.

They will join a strong Men’s and Women’s Gymnastics team, which includes Irodotus Georgallas, who picked up Cyprus’ first Gymnastics gold for the Men’s Rings, and a world-class Rythmic Gymnastics team.

And the community will also be out in force to support a deep Athletics team, including pole-vaulter Anna Foitodou and veteran sprinter Ioannis Markouliddes.


are there any turkish Cypriots competing?

Cyprus always sends teams to the commonwealth games. Maybe this year our participation will be less because of the worsening of our relations with the UK.

Kyriacos Ioannou, the current Mediterranean Games champion, finished third in a NR 2.30m. The slender 21-year-old will soon turn his attention away from the indoor season to begin preparations for the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne in mid-March.

Cyprus has 4 medals and is ranked 15th- after Kyriacos Ioannou took bronze for high jump.
