Adam Peaty won a gold and silver in the swimming at the Commonwealth Games. 

Niamh Emerson from Shirland got bronze in the Heptathlon which is pretty good considering her age and inexperience. One to watch for the future. 

Niamh's my cousin 🙂Really down to earth girl. Used to have a season ticket at Derby but her dad's a Man Utd fan so she may still need some swaying!


She won the under 20s European Championships Heptathlon in Finland last month and I'm now saving my pennies in the hopes of going to Tokyo in 2020 😄
