Lawn Bowls Review: Commonwealth Games

Monday, 16 April 2018


VIS’ Carla Krizanic and her Jackaroo bowls team created some history on the Gold Coast winning Australia’s first Commonwealth Games gold medal in more than 12 years.

After victory in the women’s fours, Krizanic then went on to win another gold medal in the women’s triples.

Krizanic admits that the crowd was just as much a part of the victory as anyone else.

“The crowd here was absolutely amazing, I’ve never played in front of a crowd like this, it definitely helped us the whole series,” Kriaznic said.

“We owe them a lot.

“I never imagined how loud the crowd would be here and I think it really helped boost us, we’ve had so many close games along the way and I think they really got us over the line so we have a lot to thank them for.

“We got a good start and they pegged back closer to us but we’ve been in that position in a lot of games so we had faith in each other and confidence that we could get over the line when it counted.

The number…

2/2… Two from two gold medals for VIS lawn bowler Carla Krizanic being a part of the winning Australian women’s triples and fours team.

All results…

Women’s Triples (Carla Krizanic): GOLD  

Women’s Fours (Carla Krizanic): GOLD

Men’s Triples (Barrie Lester): SILVER

Men’s Fours (Barrie Lester): SILVER
