"The VI commonwealth youth games in The Bahamas was such an incredible experience for everyone that was involved and we all met so many new people and made new friendships, from our team and others. The games gave all the athletes a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable experience of an international multi-sport event that helped develop our experience of competing internationally within our sport. The Venue was amazing and all the Bahamian people were immensely helpful and made sure we were okay. The island is such a beautiful place and the weather was remarkable, I am so lucky to have been able to share such an experience with the people I did and have it in such a magnificent place. I would do it again in a heartbeat."
