New focus for Team Griffith athletes

Day 7 update:

After Team Griffith’s great success in the swimming pool, attention is now firmly focused on track and field and other sports at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Hannah Joye has made her way through to the women’s high jump final after making the qualifying height of 1.85m.

Kelsey Cottrell is also a step closer to the medals as the Australian women’s triples lawn bowls team prepares for the semi-finals.

Griffith alumnus Nik Bojic finished twelfth in the men’s high jump final. While Nik jumped 2.21m, registering the same height as the fifth placegetter, the countback system put him back several places.

Another Griffith graduate, Deborah Ascon, placed fourth in the +75kg weightlifting, just one kilogram shy of the bronze medal position.
