South Canterbury Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

South Can­ter­bury has many rea­sons to be proud, with our ath­letes shin­ing at the Com­mon­wealth Games on the Gold Coast.

I’m sure I wasn’t the only res­i­dent who stayed up past their bed­time to see shot put king Tom Walsh throw his way to gold at Car­rara Sta­dium on Mon­day night.

Hav­ing in­ter­viewed Walsh sev­eral times, it’s al­ways nice to see some­one who has such a good na­ture and work ethic be­ing re­warded.

Wai­mate cy­clist Dy­lan Ken­nett won a games bronze medal in the men’s in­di­vid­ual pur­suit on Fri­day, beat­ing Aus­tralian Jor­dan Kerby at the Anna Meares Velo­drome in Bris­bane.

And South Can­ter­bury is still in on the ac­tion with Natalie Rooney com­pet­ing in the trap shoot­ing on Fri­day and Shane Arch­bold in the cy­cling men’s road race on Satur­day.

It’s great to think that a small re­gion like ours can pro­duce such suc­cess­ful ath­letes. Maybe there’s some­thing in the water?
