Ben Llewellin Says Shooting Silver For Wales Feels Fantastic

Alys Thomas Earns Gold, Records. . . And The Scalp Of Coach Stuart McNarry

Alys Thomas knows exactly what she’s going to do after picking up her shock gold medal in the women’s 200 metre butterfly at Gold Coast – shave the head of her coach Stuart McNarry. That was the deal that was struck before she went into her final if she went faster than 2 min, 6 sec. Not only did she do that, but she smashed the Commonwealth Games record and stripped two seconds off her previous best. The 27-year-old Swansea swimmer, who became only the fourth Welsh women to strike gold in the pool after Pat Beavan (1978), Georgia Davies (2014) and Jazz Carlin (2014), dominated the race from start to finish to lead home the Aussie duo of Laura Taylor (2.07.39) and 100 metre champion Emma McKeon (2.08.05) as she won in 2.05.45.

Hollie Arnold Proves She Is The Stuff Of Champions As She Smashes World Record When It Matters

Hollie Arnold saved her best till last to smash the world record in the F46 javelin to pick up Wales’ second para athletics gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. Hot on the heels of Olivia Breen’s golden leap in the long jump at the Carrara Stadium, the 23-year-old World and Paralympic champion held her nerve to see of New Zealand’s Holly Robinson in an epic battle. The 23-year-old Robinson threw down the gauntlet to the favourite from Wales in her opening round as she went 64 centimetres further than ever before with a world record throw of 43.32 metres. That added 30 centimetres to Arnold’s previous best world mark.

Jason Strange Joins Cardiff Blues And Cuts Wales U20 Tie

The current Wales U20 coach will move to the Arms Park to work as backs coach under new head coach John Mulvihill.

Tesni Evans And Joel Makin Put Wales On The World Squash Map

What a brilliant day for Welsh squash at the Commonwealth Games with both Joel Makin and Tesni Evans winning bronze medals after fantastic scraps in the third/fourth play-off matches. The dynamic Welsh duo battled to 3-2 victories over much higher ranked players than themselves to make up for the bitter disappointments of missing out on a shot at a gold medal. The 23-year-old Makin followed up his 106 minute marathon semi-final against New Zealand’s world ranked No 9 Paul Coll, which saw him surrender a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2, with a 99 minute classic against Scotland’s Alan Clyne to take his place on the medal rostrum.

Latalia Bevan Joins Gareth Bale, Sam Warburton And Geraint Thomas As Whitchurch High School Royalty

So, it is not just the legendary Welsh Sporting Trinity of Gareth Bale, Geraint Thomas and Sam Warburton who keep the flag of Whitchurch High School flying high on the world stage. Less than 24 hours after another old boy, Dan Salmon, struck gold in the Men’s Pairs in the lawn bowls with Marc Wyatt, the 17-year-old Natalia Bevan pulled off the routine of her life on Floor to strike silver in the artistic gymnastics. Bevan had score 13.00 and 13.30 in her two previous floor routines to come into the final as the fourth highest finisher, but with the pressure mounting she was almost faultless when it counted most as she thrilled the packed house with an expressive and complicated performance.
