Locals get a shot at Games

Former Lismore swimmer Adam Pine (pictured) and Kyogle long jumper Kerrie Taurima will both compete at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne after impressive performances at recent selection trials.

Adam secured his place in the Australian swim team after taking out the 100m butterfly at the National Championships last week. The selection gives 29-year-old Adam a shot at picking up his fourth Commonwealth Games medal in the butterfly before he retires, having already accumulated two bronze medals and one silver from his last three Commonwealth Games appearances.

Meanwhile, Kerrie will join the 100-strong Australian athletics squad after jumping a qualifying distance of 6.70m in Canberra during the national selection trials last Friday. The 26-year-old has suffered a string of injuries in recent years but is now in fine form for her first appearance in the senior Australian team.
