Serene Luxury Retirement Living was proud to cheer on one of their residents – Nancy Welch, as an official Baton Bearer for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games as part of the Queen’s Baton Relay.
A group of Serene Living residents joined in the fun to cheer Nancy on from the sidelines bright and early on Tuesday morning in true Aussie fashion.
Nancy is a former Olympian known as “one of the best Australian swimmers of all time” – winning silver at the 1948 London Olympics (200m Breaststroke) – only half a second behind the record-holder and gold medallist!
Some of Nancy’s other achievements include:
- Silver – 1950 British Empire Games
- Gold – 1950 British Empire Games
- Competed – 1952 Helsinki Olympics
Congratulations Nancy! We are so proud to share this experience with you!
The Serene Living crew in full support!
Nancy – fighting fit!
