"It's what we have been training for and preparing for a long time, so it’s both nerve-wracking and exciting.” Those are the words of Welsh rhythmic gymnast Gemma Frizelle as she and her team-mates prepare for a massive next three weeks. First up is the Rhythmic Gymnastics British Championships in Telford this weekend, followed a fortnight later by the Welsh Championships in Cardiff.
Tesni Evans faces the biggest task in women’s squash on Tuesday night when takes on world No.1 Nouran Gohar at the World Championships. Welsh No.1 Evans – who is seeded 13 at the tournament in Cairo – has shown good form so far in overcoming Poland’s Karina Tyma and Coline Aumard of France in reaching the last 16. But she will have to produce the form of her life to unseat Gohar in front of her home Egyptian fans at the Club S Allegria.
Matthew Maynard insists Glamorgan are still reaping the rewards of a positive approach to their County Championship campaign despite their latest defeat. The Welsh county lost by 58 runs to Durham in a match they looked well placed to win at the start of the final day. Instead, they were bowled out for just 137 with England Test hopeful Matty Potts taking 7-40, to leave Glamorgan in third place in Division Two with two wins, two defeats and two draws from their opening six matches.
It’s coming. D-day for Wales in their bid to make the World Cup finals. But few things are certain about this fixture, including the eventual full starting team that manager Robert Page will plump for. Daniel Parker reckons nine are nailed on, but two more will keep us guessing . . . and arguing. Sunday 5th June – it’s getting a bit close for comfort now, isn’t it? We’re less than three weeks away from Wales men’s golden opportunity to end 64 years of hurt by qualifying for a World Cup, and there remain a host of Rusmfeldian “known unknowns” in play.
