Feering's Joshua Bain says participating at the Commonwealth Games has been an 'amazing' experience.

The 22-year-old, who has Cerebral Palsy, finished fifth in the men’s F38 shot putt final after competing for Team England, on the Gold Coast.

He said: “I really want to start by saying that the crowd was absolutely amazing.

"The competition went well. The preparation that Mike (McNeil) and I have done has been fantastic.

"He’s been a fantastic coach and the support I’ve had from everybody, from the team at home to my parents who have come out here, has been really wonderful.

"I felt like there was a big throw in there, it’s just unfortunate that I couldn’t really deliver.

"But I’m only 5cm off my PB, so I really can’t go off and say it was a disappointing competition or I didn’t throw my best, because actually it’s an amazing achievement.

"The whole experience has been just amazing.”
