Nathaniel has continued his winning spree of late with a gold medal in the Macarthur Disabled Ten pin Bowling Championships. Winning gold was certaily a thrill as Nathaniel posted some outstanding scores with strikes and spares galore, but the highlight for Nathaniel was meeting up with the athletes and volunteers he has become friends with over the years of competition.
Earlier in the day Nathaniel participated in the Sydney West Regional Tennis Competition where he achieved tied third in the singles. It was certainly a long and tiring day but very satisfying for Nathaniel.
