Year 11 student Chelsey Edwards has been selected into the NZ Commonwealth Youth Games team under the swimming division!
The Youth Games are part of the wider Commonwealth Games Federation’s commitment to partner and support peaceful, sustainable and prosperous Commonwealth communities. The Bahamas 2017 will be the second edition of the Youth Games to be held on a Small Island Developing State, following the Samoa 2015 Commonwealth Youth Games in September. It will also be the first Commonwealth Games event to be held in the Caribbean for over 50 years, with Commonwealth athletes last participating in the 1966 Commonwealth Games in Kingston, Jamaica.
The Bahamas Youth Commonwealth Games will host 1300 athletes from around the Commonwealth and take place games 18 – 23 July 2017.
We wish Chelsey all the best in her preparation for this exciting event. #CSJPride
