Our Com­mon­wealth Games heroes

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Big con­grat­u­la­tions to the Aus­tralian ath­letes com­pet­ing in the re­cent Com­mon­wealth Games, es­pe­cially our lo­cal heroes.

The Com­mon­wealth Games is a great rep­re­sen­ta­tion of all the hard work put in by these elite ath­letes dur­ing their months and years of train­ing in their cho­sen sport.

It’s a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment for those se­lected to com­pete and truly amaz­ing for those who bring home a medal like Corowa’s very own Josh Thorn­ton.

There’s no doubt that lo­cal res­i­dents are ex­cited to see Josh when he re­turns to Corowa later this week to cel­e­brate with fam­ily and friends.

Mul­wala shooter James Wil­lett also did us proud by fin­ish­ing 6th in the men’s dou­ble trap event, as did Ruther­glen shooter Gaye Shale who fin­ished sev­enth in the women’s dou­ble trap.
