Alex - for those of you playing at home - was a member of the 2000 Olympics and 2002 Commonwealth Games gymnastics teams (winning a gold and a silver in the latter). She won a silver with synchro partner Melissa Wu at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games and went on to compete at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
If she does get the gold tonight, she will be the first athlete in the history of the Commonwealth Games to win gold medals in two different sports!
ETA: AND SHE DID! Congatulations Alex and Melissa!
"My coach just told me, after the initial results came through, that I’m first person to medal in two different sports, to get the gold medal in both sports,’’ said Croak. ’’I’m extremely honoured and very proud of my achievement and I couldn’t have done without Melissa and without my coach."
