Commonwealth Games Day 2

Commonwealth Games Day 2

Day 2 of the Games certainly delivered excitement, with a huge crowd to watch some amazing performances.  Athletes from Oceania countries again featured prominently in many events.

Australia’s Celia Sullohearn showed a “never give up attitude” in the Women’s 10,000m and won the hearts of the crowd in the process.  She finished 6th and in a Personal Best of 31.50.75, and fought right to the line.

New Zealand’s Tomas Walsh again showed what a superstar he is.  Walsh was the favourite and didn’t disappoint, winning the gold medal after setting a new Games record in the heats.

Our Para athletes shone again with Evan O’Hanlon taking the gold medal for Australia in the Mens T38 100m.  Holly Robinson of New Zealand won the silver in the Women’s F46 Javelin and Friana Kwevira won Vanuatu’s first ever medal when she won the bronze in the same event.

The Men’s 110m Hurdles saw Nick Hough progress to the finals for Australia, and Kolone Alefosio of Samoa, set a new Personal Best of 15.10 in his heat.  Australian Steve Solomon is in the final of the Men’s 400m.
