Ben Twist (lawn bowls) was selected for his first Commonwealth Games team in Birmingham where the St John’s Park bowler won silver in the men triples and was 11th in the men’s fours. Twist, who turned 32 just prior to the Games, began playing lawn bowls in 2003 because his father, mother, grandfather, uncle and aunt were all involved in the sport. Only four years later he claimed the Queensland state triples title. He has almost 100 international appearances to his name after making his Australian debut in 2018 but says his career highlight was winning the Australian Champion of Champions pairs title with his father Jeff in Perth in 2011. Twist is the Pathways Coach for NSW and ACT, identifying talent from his state to progress to the Pathways Jackaroos squad.
