Adele Nicoll is already an international athlete in two sports, but it would seem a reasonable bet to place on her one day making it a hat-trick. Adele said hello to bobsleigh after first emerging as a talented track and field athlete and she finds trying new sports just as satisfying as winning. The 25-year-old from Welshpool competed for Team Wales at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games in shot put, where her recent rapid progress in the sport enabled her to finish eighth.
Elfyn Evans had admitted to more feelings of frustration after reflecting on finishing fourth at Rally Finland. Evans had been fighting for victory until he clipped a rock on Saturday’s penultimate stage – the impact with an inside wheel breaking a damper on his Toyota GR Yaris Rally1 Hybrid. The 50 seconds that he and co-driver Scott Martin lost limping through the day’s final stage (SS18, Vekkula 2) crushed any hopes that they had of repeating last year’s Rally Finland win.
Newport County assistant manager Carl Serrant believes his team’s notable EFL Cup win at Luton Town underlines the growing depth in the Exiles’ squad. James Waite scored the late winner as League Two County upset Championship side Luton in the Carabao Cup first round, winning 3-2 at Kenilworth Road. Luton went ahead on 30 minutes courtesy of a stunning 35-yard drive into the top corner by Carlos Mendes Gomes, but were pegged back six minutes later as Lewis Collins equalised.
The final medal has been awarded, the last anthem played, and some of the temporary venues are already being dismantled. The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games is over and it's on to Victoria, Australia in four year's time. Owen Morgan reflects on what he has seen. Birmingham, you were absolutely bostin'! From the weather to the welcome . . . with a huge dollop of world class sport in between.
