Tiffani has Commonwealth Games in her sights

MALLALA’S Tiffani Graham has qualified for the Commonwealth Games trials next month in both the 50m and 100m events after a brilliant Pacific School Games in December.

Graham competed in the annual school games last month, an event that hosts young sporting students from all over the world.

The 18-year-old swam a variety of races and relays.

It was in the 100m breaststroke Tiffani claimed a silver medal with a time of 1:13:08, ensuring her place in the week-long trials in Brisbane.
