Mitchell ready for Gold Coast Games

Victoria Mitchell after winning last year's women's 10K

Commonwealth Games athlete Victoria Mitchell spoke to us about her path to this year's Games and her love of Mini-Mos.

1. Firstly, congratulations on being selected in the Australian Commonwealth Games team. How did you find out?

I knew when I crossed the finish line first at the National Championships/Commonwealth Trials that I had secured automatic nomination for Commonwealth Games. I had made the team.

2. How did you feel when you were told? Did you do anything to celebrate?

I felt relieved that I had performed under pressure. Also satisfied and happy. I didn’t do anything to celebrate apart from having the next day off training.

3. You will compete in the 3000m steeplechase, for those who don’t know, can you explain what this race is exactly?
