St Vincent and the Grenadines first participated in the Commonwealth Games, then called Empire Games, in 1958, in Cardiff Wales. Elton Anderson, who contested the 100yds and 200yds respectively, is the lone survivor of the team to Cardiff. The other members were Godfrey Roberts who compete din the Long and High Jump and Sap Coombs, the Manager.

In 1970, we won our first medal at these Games when in 1970, in Edinburgh, Scotland; George Manners copped bronze in the Weightlifting (90Kg Combined).

Four years later, 1974, Frankie Lucas of New Montrose, won a gold medal by the knockout route in Boxing in Christchurch, New Zealand (75Kg). It took another 20 years before St Vincent and the Grenadines mounted the top spot on the podium when Natasha Mayers won the 100m in controversial circumstances in Delhi, India.
