BallymenaToday congratulates two local sports stars who won medals at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014. Northern Ireland placed 15th overall at the games bringing home 2 Gold medals, 3 Silvers and 7 Bronzes.
Ballymena lawn bowler Barbara Cameron won bronze with her teammate Mandy Cunningham beating the Jersey team last week. It was Barbara’s fifth time competing in the games and she was delighted to bring a medal home this year!
Boxer Steven Donnelly is the other Ballymena talent who brought home a bronze medal after a closely fought match in the Welterweight semi final. Steven fought brilliantly and in the end lost out on points. A brilliant result from one of our most exciting and promising sportsmen.
Congratulation to the whole Northern Ireland Team, especially Barbara and Steven, for providing great results at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow!
