Australian athletes have gone from strength to strength at the Glasgow not-Olympic Games.
The Aussies have battled against not-Olympic heavyweight nations such as the Isle of Man and Mauritius to stay on the top of the not-Olympic medal tally.
The young star of Australia’s not-Olympic squad, 18-year-old swimmer Caitlin Hallett, was thrilled to have won not-Olympic gold in the 175m empirestroke.
“Winning a not-Olympic medal has always been a dream of mine,” she said.
“But to do it at my first not-Olympic Games, and to break the not-Olympic record, is something that I’m really proud of.”
Hallett celebrated her not-Olympic victory by getting a tattoo of the not-Olympic rings: a netball ring, the One Ring and Ringo Starr.
“The not-Olympic rings mean so much to me. They are symbols of what is good about all of the nations that compete at the not-Olympics, and I am so glad to take them with me wherever I go,” she said.
The results from the games will have absolutely no bearing on how the athletes fare up against the US, Russia and China at the Olympic Games in 2016.
