Oh Jeremiah: Defending Champ Azu In Dramatic Dead-Heat Finish

Jeremiah Azu was involved in a dramatic 60m final at the England Athletics age group championships in Sheffield at the weekend. The Cardiff teenager got off to a relatively slow start, but soon got into his stride to challenge Liverpool’s Henry Nwoke for the title with a late dip for the line in a desperately close finish. The commentators initially called Azu as the winner, but it soon became evident no-one could be certain whether the Welshman had retained his title or if Nwoke had just held on to earn the crown.

Taulupe Faletau Insists Wales Cannot Be Judged By England Yardstick

Taulupe Faletau insists a win over England at Twickenham would help but not define Wales’ Six Nations campaign. Defeats against Ireland and France have left hopes of a successful title defence in tatters for Wales, who play England on March 7. Last year’s Grand Slam winners last won a Six Nations game at Twickenham in 2012, but Faletau says they will not be short of motivation.

Jade Jones Vows Knee Injury Is Minor Obstacle To Triple Gold Olympic Glory

Jade Jones has vowed that nothing is going to deter her from making Taekwondo history by winning a third Olympic gold this year despite suffering a knee ligament injury in a competition in Sweden. The reigning World, Olympic and European champion was forced to pull out of the final last week and has her right knee in a brace after suffering a grade 2 tear of her medial ligament. But in typical fashion, the 26-year-old north Walian fired a warning shot to her rivals for gold in Tokyo later in the year by promising to come back even stronger.

John Mulvihill Praises Blues After Turnaround Avoids Benetton Beating

Cardiff Blues survived a scare from Benetton Rugby as they held on to beat the Italians 34-24 in a thrilling encounter at Cardiff Arms Park. The Blues only got their noses in front in the final 10 minutes as tries for Jason Harries, Garyn Smith, Ryan Edwards, Seb Davies and Lewis Jones finally broke the Italians’ spirit. Benetton earned a try bonus point through scores from Ian Keatley, Irne Herbst, and two for Toa Halafihi, while Jason Tovey kicked a crucial nine points for the home side.

Pointless Wales Are Given A Harsh Lesson by France, But Geraint Lewis Insists Better Times Lie Ahead

Wales were ruthlessly “nilled” in their third Women’s Six Nations game of the tournament – going down 50-0 to a France team in a class above at Cardiff Arms Park. The home side came into the fixture looking to put their loss against Ireland behind them and gain a first victory of the campaign. But it France who dominated the contest and their strong, overwhelming performance led to eight unanswered tries. 

Magnificent Melissa Wins First British Senior Title

Melissa Courtney-Bryant claimed her first ever senior British title with a perfectly judged tactical run in the British Athletics Indoor 3,000m final in Glasgow. The Welsh Commonwealth Games 1500m bronze medallist showed great patience during the earlier stages of the race which were run at an almost pedestrian pace. When Rosie Clarke upped the pace with just under 1,000m to go, Courtney-Bryant was one of three athletes who went with her.

James Lasts The Course After Upping His Mileage To Hunt Down Second XC Crown

James Hunt and Melanie Wilkins overcame strong fields and even stronger winds to claim the senior Welsh Cross Country Championship titles at Pembrey Country Park on Saturday. Hundreds of athletes from primary school age to over 70s travelled from all over the country to brave the elements on the exposed coastal course. Despite the rain which had lashed most of the country over the past two weeks, the combination of the drying coastal winds and layer of sand beneath the grass course, meant that conditions were surprisingly good under foot.
