Jersey gymnast Daniel Lee will carry the island’s flag at Monday night’s Commonwealth Games closing ceremony at the Alexander Stadium. Lee has been among Jersey’s top performers at Birmingham 2022, finishing sixth in the All-Around event, and seventh in the Rings final.
The 23-year-old, who was representing Jersey at his second Commonwealth Games, said: “Birmingham 2022 has been awesome. It has been an absolute privilege to compete for my island on the biggest stage and to perform as well as I did. To achieve multiple personal bests is more than I could’ve asked for and a dream come true. It’s been fantastic to see the whole of Team Jersey embracing the friendly games spirit, I’m sure I’ve made friends for life. I feel immensely proud and truly honoured to be chosen to be flagbearer and represent all the amazing Jersey athletes.”
