George Miller, 75 years and eight months, on Friday became the oldest player to win a medal at the Commonwealth Games when he won mixed pair gold for Scotland at Lawn Bowles. The team, led by Melanie Innes, her director Miller and Skip director Sarah Jane, scripted Scotland’s 16–9 victory over Wales to win gold in para mixed pair B2/B3 at Victoria Park.

“I think Rosemary is quite happy,” said Miller, replacing teammate Rosemary Lenton as the oldest gold medalist in Commonwealth Games history.


On his message to older people who want to get involved in the sport: “Bowls are easy enough for older people but any sport, walking, football, rugby, you name it, get out there, exercise, play sports.” The competition is great no matter your age,” he said.
