Nancy Baton Bearer

Cheering On Serene Living Resident Nancy at 2018 Commonwealth Games

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!

Congratulations Nancy

The Serene Living crew in full support!

Nancy - fighting fit

Nancy – fighting fit!
