Commonwealth Games Final Wrap

Commonwealth Games Final Wrap

The Commonwealth Games has finished, and what a exciting two weeks it has been with many twists and turns. Numerous records were broken, whether that be Commonwealth Games or National Records, with each athlete giving it their all.

The final Stadium program was held on the Saturday with relay finals featuring prominently.  It was exciting for all the Pacific nations to watch Fiji in the final of the Men’s 4 x 400m Relay, finishing a very creditable 5th placing.  On the Sunday, with the last day of the games there were four athletics events out of stadia, with the Women’s and Men’s T54 Marathon Final and the Men’s and Women’s Marathon Final.

The crowds lined the streets to cheer on the marathons and were treated to  Men’s T54 Marathon Australian para athlete Kurt Fearnley winning the gold medal while also beating the Commonwealth Games record in a new time of 1:30:26.

In the Women’s T54 Marathon two Australian athletes crossed the line in podium positions. Athlete Madison de Rozario taking the gold medal, and the silver medal to Eliza Ault-Connell.

In the Women’s Marathon, Australia took silver and bronze with Lisa Weightman and Jessica Trengove respectively. The Men’s Marathon Final saw gold to Australia with Michael Shelly crossing the line in 1st place, in very tough conditions in a time of 2:16:46.
