O'Dea brothers named in Commonwealth Games team

Men’s beach volleyball pair Sam and Ben O’Dea have been named to the New Zealand team for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Beach volleyball is making its Commonwealth Games debut at Gold Coast 2018 and the O’Deas will join the women’s pair of Shaunna Polley and Kelsie Wills to complete the New Zealand team.

Ben, the younger of the brothers at 25 years old, is eyeing his first Commonwealth Games experience with confidence.
“We are seeded fourth behind Canada, Australia and England. Canada are our closest competition and we have been back and forth in close games against the Australian teams for the past few years. England are also a solid outfit, but we are aiming for gold.”
