Don Sherman (lawn bowls) created history at the Brisbane 1982 Commonwealth Games as part of the historic men’s fours team of Herbert Sharp, Robbie Dobbins and Keith Poole that was Australia’s first ever Commonwealth Games gold medal winning bowls team. Sherman enjoyed a reasonably short but illustrious career that spanned 58 international appearances from 1982 to 1985, competing in all of the sport’s major marquee events, including the Commonwealth Games, two Trans Tasman Test Series, a World Bowls Championships and an Asia Pacific Championships. Following his retirement, Sherman remained involved in the sport before taking the reins as the National Coach/Manager from 1996 to 1999. Sherman passed in 2017, aged 82.
