‘In­cred­i­ble’ Games for Wil­son

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

NILE Wil­son de­scribed his Com­mon­wealth Games ex­pe­ri­ence as “in­cred­i­ble” af­ter re­turn­ing from Aus­tralia’s Gold Coast with five medals, in­clud­ing three golds.

The 22-year-old from Leeds claimed vic­tory in the high bar, all-around and the men’s team event along­side Do­minick Cunningham, James Hall, Court­ney Tul­loch and Max Whit­lock.

There were also sil­ver medals in the rings and par­al­lel bars for the Olympic bronze medal­list.

“We knew we had a fan­tas­tic chance at the Com­mon­wealth Games in terms of gym­nas­tics, it’s just about go­ing out there and per­form­ing and we cer­tainly did that as a team,” said Wil­son (be­low).

“It has been an in­cred­i­ble Games, def­i­nitely.

“It’s one of the most in­cred­i­ble Games in terms of the en­vi­ron­ment.

“Thanks to UK Sport and the Na­tional Lot­tery we have all the sup­port out there that we need.

“It was in­cred­i­ble, the whole en­vi­ron­ment and be­ing at the Gold Coast, it was a truly in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence the at­mos­phere at that arena.

“It is hon­estly one of the cra­zi­est ex­pe­ri­ences, the best ex­pe­ri­ences I have ever had. I couldn’t be hap­pier.

“Gym­nas­tics, on be­half of my­self, we ab­so­lutely smashed it.

“I loved ev­ery minute of it and I think all of Team Eng­land can be so proud of what we achieved there.”
