NSW athletes go for gold
Nearly half of the NSW athletes will be making their Commonwealth Games debut, with nine representing Australia in international competition for the first time.
Ninety of the athletes competing are supported by the NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS).
The NSWIS athletes will compete in athletics, swimming, hockey, shooting, diving, cycling and triathlon.
NSW Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres wished the NSW athletes the best of luck.
“The number of athletes from NSW not only demonstrates the talent we have in our state but also the world-class facilities and support that we offer to enable them to compete against the world’s best,” Mr Ayres said.
The Commonwealth Games will be held on the Gold Coast from 4 April to 15 April 2018.
