Aboriginal activists protest at the 'Stolenwealth' Games opening ceremony

Aboriginal activists protest at the 'Stolenwealth' Games opening ceremony

Wales had a day to remember when Anna Hursey, the Games' youngest competitor at just 11, won a doubles table tennis match in the women's team event against India, together with partner Charlotte Carey.

Queensland locals Georgia Godwin and Georgia-Rose Brown will be chasing medals in Saturday evening's all-around gymnastics finals at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

"To be able to participate at the Games is fantastic", the British-born world number 477 said at Gold Coast, where he will compete in singles and doubles. However, even before that, the hosts have been assured of a medal in the women 51kg category, where boxer Taylah Robertson has gotten a bye to the semi-final.

"It's the first time I think I've heard the crowd while I'm swimming", she added.

Sisters Bronte and Cate Campbell, Emma McKeon and Shayna Jack clocked a time of 3 minutes, 30.5 seconds at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre.




"I've said it for a while, I'd prefer the first Steph Morton and Kaarle McCulloch (as opposed to the next Anna Meares), we're the fastest team sprint Australia has ever had and we can only look forward to Tokyo, we're both in really good form".

"Can't complain with a casual Aussie record but we're stoked, that's what we came here for - to smash our own record and we got it convincingly so it's pretty exciting with three days to go", Morton said.

"It's a failing on the team's part, it's a failing on my part as the director of the programme and I can guarantee you that no other bike is going to go onto the track with a set-up that's not confirmed to the regulations".

"I guess the comp's (only one day away) so we don't have a lot of time to fix it".

The mixed team triathlon makes its Games debut, with Australian Ryan Birtwhistle gunning to go one better than his silver-medal finish in the men's individual race on Thursday.
