Think race walking is for slow coaches? Think again. Try keeping up with Welsh No.1 Bethan Davies who can walk 5k in 21 minutes (her current British record). Owen Morgan met up with her as she strides towards April’s Commonwealth Games in Australia. With the Commonwealth Games now a shade under six months away, Welsh race walker Bethan Davies has just taken the first steps on the long journey towards her Gold Coast dream. As well as aiming for a medal winning performance when she gets there, she’s hoping to raise the profile of her sport along the way.
The threat to Rhys Webb’s international future is self-defeating and was entirely avoidable, says Robin Davey. If the new national selection policy was well-intended, it has been poorly targeted at a player who deserved better.

Chaz Davies is gunning for more success in Jerez this weekend in his bid to finish runner-up in the World Superbikes championship. The Knighton0born rider claimed a memorable double triumph there last year and has three wins in all for Ducati on the Spanish track.
Wales have a new kit. It’s red. So, that’s the fashionistas sorted. And young traditionalists don’t need to worry, either, because it’s still got a great big sponsors’ logo on the chest. Dai Sport reckons it looks okay – like a Wales rugby jersey should look. We don’t begin to understand the marketing guff (something about hills on your shoulders) but we’ve patriotically reproduced the WRU press release, anyway, for anyone who can work it out. Oh, and the replica is 65 quid. The new Wales kit for the next two seasons of international rugby was revealed for the first time today by global sports performance and innovation brand Under Armour. Inspired by the Welsh national anthem ‘Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau’ (Land of my Fathers), Under Armour’s new design is intrinsically linked to the Welsh landscape, using the topography of unique areas around the country mapped out on the shoulders with subtle stitching.
