Three swimmers and a cyclist – all teenagers – are the final additions to Jersey’s team for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
Jack Allan, Lily Scott and Australia-based Ollie Brehaut will compete in the pool, while 18-year-old cyclist Zack Hamon will line up in the road race. Hamon has been racing a bicycle since the age of six and competes for Big Maggie’s Racing Team. He plans to race in Belgium in preparation for the Games.
The four additions bring the Jersey team to 28 competitors.
Continuum Pathway performance manager, Paul du Feu, said: “The validation sub committee met this week to review the final tranche of athletes. Both sports’ team managers were delighted to have these extra team members to add strength to the road race squad and open up the possibilities of having relay teams in the pool.
“We’ll head to the Games with seven swimmers in total and seven cyclists amongst the 28-strong team. I congratulate all those who’ve been selected for Birmingham 2022, and thank all those athletes who’ve been on our Continuum Pathway.”
The Commonwealth Games starts on 28 July and runs until 8 August.
