2020 Multi Disability Championship – Sporting Wheelies

Damien Delgado and Cooper Whitestyles defeated Bernie Wolland and Brett Sellars 20-9 in the gold medal match, while Serena and Tony Bonnell won the bronze medal.

Both Delgado and Whitestyles are playing in the Singles tournament tomorrow and aren’t having too late a night to celebrate. This pairs match is the first time they have played together, as Cooper is in Mackay and Damien Northern NSW so this was literally the first time they had rolled up together as a team. They had, of course, competed against each other, but this time was a first.

“It feels great,” Damien said.

“It’s my first time playing with Cooper and he bowled well.

“There were a few tough moments and a few scares to get through to the gold medal match this afternoon but we got through.

“The weather didn’t really affect us, the greens roll really well.”

“It was great to win with Damien, especially after winning last year and this being the first time Damien and I have competed together,” Cooper said.

“It feels great to win a state championship with him”.
