Kids Give Team NI a Warm Gold Coast Welcome

Northern Ireland’s Commonwealth Games athletes were handed a rousing official welcome on Friday at their pre-Games training camp in Australia by the pupils of Somerset College.

The Gold Coast school has opened the doors of their track to Team NI for a two-week preparation stint before competition begins on Sunday 8 April.

The students were invited to a special open session as the members of the squad ramped up their build-up for the event.

“We want to use the camp to get ready and go into the Games in top shape,” said long jumper Adam McMullen.
