Masters' maiden games

A nervous wait has finally come to an end for sprinter Bree Masters, who has been named in her first Commonwealth Games team. 

The 27-year-old, who recently graduated with a Bachelor of Communication (Business) from Bond University, has qualified for two events: 100m and the 4x100m relay. 

Her efforts at the Oceania Championships in Mackay earlier this month secured her ticket to the UK. 

Her 4x100m women’s relay team consisting of Ella Connolly, Monique Quirk and Naa Anang collected gold, beating New Zealand by more than three seconds (44.06). In the 100m, Masters picked up silver (11.34) behind Auckland speedster Zoe Hobbs (11.09).

Masters is part of an 85-member Australian athletics team who will compete in the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games which begin on July 28. Athletics competitions start on August 2.

Masters has enjoyed a meteoric rise over her limited track career having only made the transition from beach sprints two years ago.
