Australian World Dwarf Games team boosts numbers for double medal effort

The 39-member team is in the midst of training for the August Games, which will be held at Michigan State University in the US.

It is only the second time Australia will send a team to the tournament.

In 2009, Australia won 24 medals, including eight gold, from the event held in Ireland. With almost double the number of competitors this time around, expectations are high to improve on that, according to the team’s oldest member Margherita Coppolino.

“In 2009 we only had a small team of 15 and the only team sport we had was basketball,” the 53-year-old said.
