George Miller, 75 years and eights months old, on Friday became the oldest player to win a medal at the Commonwealth Games when he bagged the mixed pairs gold in lawn bowls for Scotland.
The team -- lead Melanie Innes, her director Miller and skip director Sarah Jane -- scripted Scotland's 16-9 victory over Wales to win gold in the para mixed pairs B2/B3 at Victoria Park in Birmingham.
"I think Rosemary is quite pleased," said Miller, while replacing teammate Rosemary Lenton as the oldest gold medal winner in Commonwealth Games history:
On his message to older people who might want to get involved in the sport, he said: "Bowls is quite easy for older people but any sport, walking, football, rugby, you name it, get out there, exercise, play games. Competing is brilliant whatever age you are."
