A $13,500 operation later - where her damaged knee tendon was replaced with an Achilles tendon from a cadaver - Stridsman immediately turned her attention to the Commonwealth Games. "To have gone through all that, I've proven so much to myself", she said.

At the athletics stadium, Tasmanian Hamish Peacock snared men's javelin silver and teammate Nicola McDermott took women's high jump bronze.

It capped a mixed day for Australia's doubles teams.

Fearnley will race alongside compatriot Jake Lappin, while Australian para-marathoners Eliza Ault-Connell and Madison de Rozario chase gold in the women's equivalent.
