NETBALLER TO CARRY FLAG AT OPENING CEREMONY
2 October 2010

Netballer Sharelle McMahon will become the first netballer to carry the Australian flag at a Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.

McMahon, who has won 2 gold and 1 silver at the previous three Commonwealth Games was a worthy choice by chef de mission Steve Moneghetti who would have also considered 7 time Commonwealth Games gold medal winner and Nunawading Swimming Club member Leisel Jones.

Leisel would now be a favourite to hold the flag at the closing ceremony, especially if she can win three gold medals during the games and equal the record of 10 gold medals held by Susie O’Neill and Ian Thorpe.

The resurgent Canadian swim team, which has been buoyed by a strong performance at the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships in Irvine, California, is aiming to build on that success.

"We won one gold medal in 2006," said head coach Randy Bennett. "We expect to do better than one gold and better our medal count in 2006 by a significant number." Their medal count in 2006 was 16.

Gandy burst onto the International stage when she smashed the 200m butterfly European record as a 17-year old at the 2009 British Championships.
