Four Botany Downs Secondary College alumni competed at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham which wound up this week.

They were Kirsten Fisher-Marsters [Swimming, Cook Islands], Niu Osika [Sevens, Tonga], Tone Ng Shiu [Sevens, NZ] and Zachary Saunders [Athletics, Jersey].

Meanwhile, para-athlete and Howick College student, Josh Willmer won a gold medal in the Men’s 100m Breaststroke SB8 in Birmingham.

And it is understood the superstar cyclist Aaron Gate, who won his record-breaking fourth gold medal of the Games this week, has his proud Nana cheering him on a Pakuranga Park Village.
