Gareth Bale has told Los Angeles FC he will see them soon in a message posted as it was announced the Wales captain is joining the Major League Soccer club. After weeks of speculation – that included the always seemingly unlikely idea that he might move from Real Madrid to play in the Championship for Cardiff City – Bale has opted to play in the United States as he prepares to lead Wales into the World Cup in Qatar later this year. The five-time Champions League winner is soon to be a free agent and is looking for a new club ahead of playing for Wales at the World Cup , which starts in November.
Jeremiah Azu says he wants to change British sprinting forever after winning the Muller UK Athletics Championships 100m title in the fastest time ever run by a Welshman. Cardiff's reigning under-23 champion blasted to a remarkable wind-assisted time of 9.90 to win the final in impressive style.
Glamorgan’s Colin Ingram admitted his team were disappointed at losing a seven-over bash against Somerset which leaves the Welsh county as outsiders to make the T20 Blast knockout stages. Glamorgan were denied a win in their final home match of the season in a hectic, rain-affected fixture. The match was reduced to just seven overs a side, with Glamorgan losing by 16 runs.
Hannah Brier became Wales's fastest woman in history with a blistering 100m run at the Muller UK Athletics Championships in Manchester on Friday night. The Swansea Harrier had previously jointly held the Welsh record of 11.39 with Sallyane Short and Elaine O'Neill.
As the soft, summer rain fell, barely three miles from where Phil Bennett helped Llanelli famously beat New Zealand 9-3 at Stradey Park 50 years ago, family, friends, players past and present, coaches and rugby supporters gathered at Parc y Scarlets to honour his legacy. Bennett was described as “a great gentleman and a great rugby player” as giants of the sport from Wales and beyond united in tribute to him at a remembrance service at the stadium. Bennett, who died earlier this month after a long illness at the age of 73, captained Wales and the British and Irish Lions.
Rhys Jones has described being selected for a third Commonwealth Games as his “gold medal moment”. Anything else he achieves on the Alexander Stadium track in Birmingham this summer will be a bonus, says the para sprinter.
