Eight students and three alumni travelled to Glasgow for the Games, with the 11 athletes participating in either the men’s and women’s hockey or artistic gymnastics.
Curtin students Jane-Anne Claxton, Georgina Parker, Brooke Peris and Emily Smith and alumni Jayde Taylor, Anna Flanagan and Ashleigh Nelson played hockey.
They helped the Hockeyroos win over England from a penalty shootout in the gold-medal match after the Aussies had been within 20 seconds of losing in normal time.
The men’s hockey team, the Kookaburras, claimed a fifth Commonwealth Games title.
Curtin students Daniel Beale, Simon Orchard and Matthew Swann featured in the Kookaburras’ gold medal campaign, playing in the 4-0 win over India.
Gymnast Lauren Mitchell ended her campaign with two silver medals.
Mitchell now has seven Commonwealth Games medals across her decorated career.
