Commonwealth Games

Former #UVATF standout Iona Lake is competing in the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia, finishing eighth yesterday in the 3,000m steeplechase. Lake, who was the 2015 ACC Champion in the steeplechase, is the British champion in the event. The Commonwealth Games are an international event held every four years featuring athletes from 71 nations and territories that once were or currently are part of the British Empire.

And, because we are a sucker for animal pics, here is a bonus image of her meeting a joey before the games began.
