Game on, as week-long event officially opened
THE 2018 South West Games were officially opened with a dinner at the Hamilton Golf Club on Friday night.
The annual multi-sport event officially runs this week but some sport clubs have elected to host their events outside of the seven day period.
Former Wannon resident and Australian gymnast Miriana Perkins was the special guest at the dinner, which was attended by about 100 people.
Perkins talked about the commitment it takes to reach the elite level in any sport and how she was grateful she could return to be involved in the 2018 games.
“It is such an honour, I didn’t get to compete in any events but my brother was involved in the soccer event this year,” she said.
