Rhys Lightning gets into the swing of things

By Lindy McDowell

Well done to 18-year-old gymnastics star, Rhys McClenaghan, who won gold this week at the Commonwealth Games in Australia.

We will be hearing a lot more in future from Rhys, or Rhys Lightning as his fans call him. Not only is he a champion in his sport, he's also a winner when it comes to personality.

Chatting to a reporter, he did the entire interview upside down, standing on his hands. And with some understatement he told another reporter that winning gold was "not too shabby".

A new sporting star is born.
