Netball skipper McMahon to be Oz CWG flag bearer

There was no shortage of motivation for the Australian netball team ahead of the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games.


New Delhi, Oct. 2 : There was no shortage of motivation for the Australian netball team ahead of the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games.

The appointment of team captain Sharelle McMahon as Australia's flag bearer for Sunday's opening ceremony has given the Diamonds an extra spring in their step in India, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Two-time gold medallists Australia are gunning for revenge after falling five goals short of the Kiwis in the Games netball final four years ago, robbing them of a fairytale finish in Melbourne.

McMahon's historic appointment would only further motivate the Aussies after emerging recent 2-1 series victors over old foe New Zealand.

McMahon is the first netballer to carry the Australian flag at a Commonwealth Games opening ceremony when she leads the team out onto Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

"She's a great chick, a great ambassador for netball and I am glad that she has been acknowledged for the effort that she has put in," Gerard said of McMahon.

McMahon, 32, is the only member of the netball side to have played at all three previous Games, winning two gold medals.
