On playing in her third Commonwealth Games:

“I’m pinching myself that I’m one night away from my third Commonwealth Games.

“My first Commonwealth Games was pre-social media so it’s completely different in terms of access.

“I am the oldest in the team (at 34). I am the veteran but I’m calling it ‘experienced’.”

On her return to the Australian team after being overlooked during the past four years:

“Two years ago I didn’t think I’d have a chance at this. For me to be back here gives me goosebumps.

“I didn’t give up on that dream.”
