"To have the Commonwealth Games in my own backyard, the place I call home, will be a special time," he says.

"It’s a great opportunity to share the experience with my family and friends.

"The Gold Coast is one of the best places in the world to live, train and compete.

"I can’t wait for the next wave of sporting stars from the Commonwealth to experience our Games, the Gold Coast and Australia."
