Common Wealth GamesGeoff Huegil Wins Silver in the 50-fly

New Delhi - Common Wealth Games: Jason Dunford of Kenya won gold in the 50-fly hitting the wall in 23.35 besting Geoff Huegill's 23.37 and Roland Schoeman's 23.75.

Geoff Huegill's comeback is complete. Outside of the Paralympics, this is one of the most inspiring swim stories I have ever seen.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

Huegill's silver medal still represents a great achievement for the 31-year-old, who lost 45kg to return to the sport after quitting in 2004.


I sent a letter of congratulations to Geof via his blog. I mentioned that it wasn't so much the silver medal that was inspiring but rather the journey it took to get there.
