Jake Fehlberg (lawn bowls) teamed up with Helen Boardman in the B2/B3 mixed pairs at his second Commonwealth Games in Birmingham where the pair finished 4th. Four years earlier on the Gold Coast, he triumphed in the event alongside Lynne Seymour. Jake was encouraged to play bowls by his father Grant Fehlberg. Jake’s eyesight started to deteriorate when he was 10, so he had to ask his fellow bowlers to stand at the head to guide him to the jack. After a while, he started using a monocular or binoculars to see the other end of the rink. He claimed gold in the singles and silver in the triples at the 2011 Queensland Multi-Disability Championships aged 17, where he was named best singles bowler of the tournament. In 2020, he was named the Bowler with a Disability of the Year by Bowls Australia. Jake plays out of the Burleigh Heads Bowls Club and has a Bachelor of Business from Griffith University.
