Two decades on from her first Commonwealth Games appearance and 12 years since her last, Amy Pharaoh is back for more as she seeks to add to her glittering medal collection.
Pharaoh, from Grimsby, took bronze in Manchester and Melbourne before upgrading to gold in Delhi in 2010, teaming up with Ellen Falkner to earn victory in the women’s pairs.
Family commitments meant missing trips to Glasgow and the Gold Coast but Pharaoh will be relishing performing on home turf this summer having come through a competitive selection process.
A world champion both indoors and outdoors, the Lincolnshire bowler, who represents Cleethorpes BC, inspires the next generation in her day job as a PE teacher at the same school she attended as a youngster, Tollbar Academy.
