Barrie Lester

Barrie Lester (lawn bowls) is a three-time Commonwealth Games medallist and was part of the record-breaking Jackaroos squad at the Gold Coast 2018 Games. Making his Commonwealth Games debut as a 24-year-old at the Melbourne 2006 Games, Lester paired with Nathan Rice to win bronze in the men’s pairs event. Missing selection for the Delhi 2010 and Glasgow 2014 Games, provided the motivation for Lester to continue to work on his craft which saw him make the team for the Gold Coast 2018 Games. At the 2018 Games, he helped Australia win silver in the men’s triples and fours events, as part of the best haul for an Australian squad at any Commonwealth Games. A three-time world championship medallist, Barrie Lester has targeted the upcoming Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games to breakthrough for a gold medal. Lester’s personal motto is ‘BLEST’, which stands for bowls, leadership, excellence, skills and training. Away from the greens, Lester has started his own wine label called BLEST wines.
