Ffion Tynon has been selected for Wales at senior women’s golf for the time after making the team to compete at the South American Amateur Championships in Chile in January. The highly promising 16-year-old has been included in the Welsh line-up for the open team event after a string of impressive performances at recent tournaments. Tynon finished seventh at this summer’s English Girls Open Amateur Championship – an event for U18s – tasted victory at the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters and earned third place at the Welsh Ladies Amateur Championship.
Cardiff City are seeking a new manager, the 10th who will have managed the club in some form or other over the past 10 years. But the legacy and impact of Neil Warnock is one that stands alone in a turbulent decade, says Josh Thomas. The Sevenside Derby is almost up and Bristol City are attacking towards the Canton Stand. The ball is slipped through to Kasey Palmer but Leandro Bacuna comes across to clear the danger and send the ball upfield in search for a Cardiff City equaliser. Moments later the final whistle blows and The Robins secure their first away win over the Bluebirds in 17 years. Loud boos are heard from all parts of the stadium, some fans sit down, dejected, while others stand up hurling abuse towards the players and, in particular, manager Neil Warnock.
Hollie Arnold celebrated her fourth consecutive World Para Athletics title on Monday, but instantly turned her attention to re-claiming her world record at next year's Paralympics in Tokyo. The Loughborough-based athlete set a new personal best on her way to the F46 title in Dubai, but fell short of regaining the world record she broke to claim gold for Wales at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, last year. Having pouched her fourth world title, Arnold's focus is now on Paralympic gold and the world record she lost to New Zealand's Holly Robinson in April.
Jackson Page claimed the biggest win of his professional career to progress to the second round of the 19.com Northern Ireland Open. The Ebbw Vale teenager looked to be heading out of the second of four Home Nations events when he trailed veteran Barry Pinches 3-1 in their best-of-seven encounter on Monday night. But breaks of 81 and 71 either side of a scrappy sixth frame booked the 18-year-old’s place in the last 64 – where last weekend’s Champion of Champions winner Neil Robertson potentially lies in wait.
Harri Jenkins marked his first ever World Para Athletics Championships by winning a brilliant bronze medal in Dubai on Sunday night in the T33 100m final.

For Jenkins, the reigning European champion, it was a breakthrough performance on the global stage. The gold went to Ahmad Almutairi, of Kuwait.
As the World Cup reviews, inquests and best XVs begin to fade in the rear view memory, Harri Morgan has an idea for the road ahead. Make the tournament more competitive by changing the rules of eligibility. It works for others, he says. For us fans, the joys and disappointments of Rugby World Cup Japan 2019 can now be shoved neatly into the library of sporting memories. Okay, perhaps Springbok fans can milk it for a while longer.
Aled Davies described his fourth consecutive World Championships shot put gold medal as his most difficult yet and immediately paid tribute to his fiancée and newborn daughter for inspiring him to victory. Davies had to fight every step of the way to retain his title as Luxembourg's Tom Habscheid threw a personal best of 15.10m to lead the Welshman going into the fourth round at the World Para-Athletics Championships in Dubai. But the Cardiff AC athlete, who has been struggling for form this season and went into the competition ranked third, dug deep to produce the F63 competition-winning distance of 15.38m with his fourth attempt and never looked back.
