OUR Com­mon­wealth Games stars have come away with an in­cred­i­ble medal strike rate, with four Tweed ath­letes bring­ing home medals at the 2018 Games.


■ DY­LAN WOTHER­SPOON: Scor­ing three goals, Wother­spoon led the Kook­abur­ras in at­tack as the side won a sixth con­sec­u­tive Com­mon­wealth Games gold.

■ KEN HAN­SON: Han­son be­came Aus­tralia’s old­est ever Com­mon­wealth Games gold medal­list af­ter he pro­duced the win­ning bowl for the para open triples team.


■ GABRIELLE NANCE, SA­VAN­NAH FITZ­PATRICK: Nance and Fitz­patrick, both 23, won sil­ver with the Hock­ey­roos in a tour­na­ment that could set-up their ca­reers. Both were in­stru­men­tal in the at­tack­ing half for Aus­tralia and should fea­ture for the na­tional side in up­com­ing tour­na­ments.


■ BILL CHAF­FEY: Al­though Chaf­fey has de­scribed the re­sult as “dis­ap­point­ing”, his bronze medal fin­ish in the para-triathlon was re­mark­able.
