Commonwealth beach volleyball bronze for O'Dea brothers

Commonwealth beach volleyball bronze for O'Dea brothers”

The third seeds struggled to beat Ben and Sam O'Dea's defence at the net, falling behind early in the first set and failing to recover.

Andrew Schacht and Joshua Slack were the last Australian pair to make a Games in 2008, Schumann saying that success at the Olympic qualifiers beginning later this year was their next goal.

"That's going to start in September with Olympic qualifying so we'll have a rest after this and throw the kitchen sink at the next challenge".

And in the Diving at Optus Aquatic Centre, Melissa Wu wowed the crowd with a Gold medal performance in the Women's 10m Platform, before James Connor took home the Bronze in the Men's 3m Springboard final.

"I think we did a really good job of getting over that semi-final loss real quick", Ben said.

"It was the hardest we've seen them fight in this tournament so far", he said.

It was a Gold medal double for Australia at the Lawn Bowls today, with our Open B6/B7/B8 Triples team beating New Zealand 14-13.

England's Chris Gregory and Jake Sheaf failed in their bid for beach volleyball bronze as they lost 2-0 to New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games.
