Commonwealth Games: Zoe Ballantyne

As you may know the Commonwealth games has began and and this year the event is being held in Glasgow. Being that New Zealand is part of the Commonwealth, I have chosen one of the athletes; Zoe Ballantyne to follow during the Commonwealth.

This year, Zoe Ballantyne is currently participating in the 4x400m Women’s relay with her first Commonwealth relay on the first of August at Hampden Park Stadium. Although this is her first Commonwealth Games, Zoe has been an Oceania Championship medalist in 2010, 2011 and in 2012. Not only that but she is New Zealand’s top 400m hurdler winning three years in a row in the New Zealand National Championship.

Hopefully, Zoe will win some medals for New Zealand and beat her current personal best (53.92) during the games. She is definitely already a great athlete and won’t disappoint.
