Pair selected for Comm Games

Two badminton players have been selected to represent New Zealand at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games in July.

Oliver Leydon-Davis (32) will attend his fourth games and will team up with debutant Anona Pak (28) in the mixed doubles.

The duo are New Zealand's No1 mixed doubles pairing, having been competing together domestically and internationally for three years.

They secured their Commonwealth Games spots following a successful return to international competition in 2022, with results including a second placing in the recent Oceania Championships.
