Lauren Price Cruises Into Semi-Final But Her Aim Is For Gold

Lauren Price hammered out a 5-0 warning to her rivals in the 75kg women’s boxing class that she is only at the Gold Coast to win one colour medal this time out – the gold. The first Welsh female boxer to win a Commonwealth Games medal in Glasgow four years ago, when she won bronze, she completely outclassed Rady Gramane of Mozambique in their quarter-final clash. That win - she only lost one of the three rounds on one of the five judges’ cards – has set-up a semi-final clash with Canada’s Tammara Thibeault on 13 April, who won a split decision against Cameroonian Clotilde Essiane.

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.

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.

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.
