Birthday Boy Rhys Enoch Aims High For US Open Finale

Wales’ Commonwealth champion and Olympic medallist spoke to Liz Byrne about life after swimming, her hopes, her fears, and her body.

Carlin revealed she would be quitting the pool in February 2019 following a career that encompassed the misery and desolation of missing out on a home Olympics in 2012 through to the joy of double silver in the 400m and 800m freestyle four years later in Rio de Janeiro.

Evans Goes Fourth Into Final Day In Sardinia

While the top three edged out a bit of a gap at the top of the leaderboard, Evans was embroiled in a very close battle with the Norwegian driver. Co-driven by Scott Martin, the Welshman will want to hold onto fourth, as it will give him extra points and put him in pole position to benefit from any mistakes or misfortune that happen ahead of him.
