Representing England, representing Hexham

I would like to congratulate David Cumberlidge from Hexham who has won a silver medal at the Commonwealth Games as part of the men's 4x100m freestyle relay team. David swam the first leg, helping the team to finish second behind hosts Australia. David also competed in the men's 50m freestyle, but unfortunately just missed out on a medal, finishing in 4th place. Swimmer Emily Large from Ponteland is also enjoying success at the Games, competing in the 100m butterfly semi final and the 200m butterfly final.

It is great to see local athletes competing at the Commonwealth Games, and I wish the best of luck to all athletes for the rest of the Games.
