Old Boys Headed for Commonwealth Games

Two Newington Old Boys will compete at the XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow – 23 July to 3 August, 2014.

Malek Chamoun (ON 2006) who has been legally blind since age fifteen, will vie for gold in weightlifting, in the able bodied competition. Malek’s inspirational story was recently featured on The Project on Channel Ten.

Josh Ralph (ON 2009) will race on the athletics track in the 400m. Josh has recently emerged as a serious 400m contender. At school he competed in 800m, 1500m and Cross Country. He has the Rio Olympics firmly in his sights.

Raymond Tam (ON 2004), who is currently top of the Badminton Australia men’s doubles rankings and in blistering form, will make his Commonwealth Games debut with his Men’s Doubles partner Glen Wharfe.

We wish them all the very best of luck!
