Derby athletes triumph at 2018 Commonwealth Games

Derby Arena athletes have achieved unprecedented success alongside City of Derby swimmers at this year’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. Several gold, silver and bronze medals have been won, and Team England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have all benefited from the achievements of Derbyshire athletes.

Off the track and the road, Derby athletes have seen great success during the 2018 Commonwealth Games. In the pool City of Derby swimmer Sarah Vasey won a gold medal in the 50m breaststroke. Three silver medals were scooped up for Derby in the pool, with Abbie Wood in the 400m Freestyle, Lewis White gaining silver in the S9 100m and Molly Renshaw swimming to success in the 200m breaststroke. Adam Peaty, who formerly trained with City of Derby swimming club, gained both a gold in the 100m breaststroke and silver in the 50m breaststroke. Derby Active is proud to have been able to support these athletes on their journey to the top through the provision of swimming and training facilities in the city.

Derby Active is proud to see such a large number of athletes from Derby and Derbyshire competing at such a high level, on the international stage.
