Jeremiah Azu has vowed to show his blazing talent on the world stage next year and avenge the “nonsense” of the ranking system that denied him earlier this summer. The 21-year-old Welsh star produced a brilliant run to claim a bronze medal in the 100m final at the European Athletics Championships in Munich on Tuesday night. Azu clocked a new personal best of 10.13, finishing behind Italy's Olympic Champion Marcel Jacobs and Great Britain team-mate Zharnel Hughes, who was the reigning European champion.
Russell Martin has told Swansea City fans he takes responsibility for the collapse of their two-goal lead against Millwall that cost them two precious Championship points. The Swans head coach insists the collective lack of authority that resulted in two own goals in injury time – and a 2-2 home draw – is down to him. Martin was angered by one of his benched players – understood to be Jamie Paterson – punching the ball back towards the visitors and enabling them to take a quick throw-in, from which they scored their equaliser.
Former Welsh Rugby Union chief executive David Moffett has urged the All Blacks to either sack or back coach Ian Foster. Foster appeared to be on the verge of being dismissed after New Zealand suffered a run of five Test defeats in six matches. But the All Blacks – who play Wales in Cardiff on November 5 – rallied to earn a superb 35-23 victory in South Africa last weekend and since then his bosses have refused to comment on his immediate future.
Osian Pryce maintains his strong challenge for the 2022 British Rally Championship title after finishing runner-up in the Voyonic Grampian Forest Rally. It was the second time in as many years that the Machynlleth-born driver had finished second on the Aberdeenshire forestry event, as he and co-driver Noel O’Sullivan enjoyed another fast and trouble-free run in their Demon Tweeks-backed Melvyn Evans Motorsport-prepared Volkswagen Polo GTI R5. As the highest placed returnee, Pryce started this year’s Grampian Forest Rally first on the road – which turned out to be a disadvantage as he swept the loose gravel off the surface in the fast and flowing Durris, Fetteresso and Drumtochty forests.
Welsh Fencing is celebrating a highly successful Senior Commonwealth Championships in which Wales won four medals, including gold for Gemma Collis.

Leading the way was para fencer Collis, who took gold in the wheelchair women’s foil, category A competition.
