Guyana’s racquet wielders off to Commonwealth Games
The feisty Nigel Bryan and Natalie ‘speedy’ Cummings are also expected to spring a few surprises and could find themselves making the headlines.
Guyana, though, will be without female sensation Chelsea Edghill, who, regrettably had to miss the games because of her academic commitments.
Her absence will mainly hurt the local’s prospects of medaling prospects since she recently displayed fine form, serving her way to championship honours in the women’s singles at the St Joseph Gardens Open Table Tennis Championship a few weeks ago.
Her absence nonetheless, presented an opportunity for the 2017 junior Caribbean bronze medalist, Priscilla Greaves to gain some valuable experience on the big stage.
Coach Idi Lewis is tasked with overseeing the team’s medal hunt in Australia. The team will land in Australia today.
Guyana’s delegation: Christopher Franklin, Shemar Britton, Nigel Bryan, and Joel Alleyne, Trenace Lowe, Natalie Cummings and Priscilla Greaves
