The Western Star - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIAN men’s squash dou­bles pair Zac Alexan­der and David Palmer have won Com­mon­wealth Games gold.

The Glas­gow 2014 ad­ver­saries were the epit­ome of team­work in yes­ter­day’s nerve-rack­ing three-game ti­tle match, out­do­ing Eng­land’s Daryl Selby and Adrian Waller 11-9 3-11 11-6.

Palmer, the for­mer world No.1 who came out of re­tire­ment for a sec­ond time to seek glory on the Gold Coast claimed his third Games gold medal and ninth over­all at the age of 41.

Down 3-0 in the third, the duo mus­tered all their might to claim vic­tory.
