Medi Harris believes she is growing into her status as a medal-winning international swimmer after backing up her Commonwealth Games bronze medal with a silver at the European Aquatics Championships in Rome. The rising Welsh star combined with Freya Colbert, Lucy Hope, and Freya Anderson to get Britain on the medal table on the opening night in Italy with second place in the women's 4x200m freestyle relay final In their second swim together as a quartet, Colbert, Hope, Harris and Anderson kept themselves in contention for the European title from lane one throughout a thrilling race, before ultimately touching for silver behind the Netherlands. The silver medal follows Harris’s bronze in Birmingham last week in the final of the women’s 100m backstroke.
Cardiff City boss Steve Morison believes his young striker Isaak Davies was hung out to dry in the recent transfer stalemate with Burnley. A fee of £2.5m was allegedly offered by last season’s Premier League fall guys to Cardiff for the 20-year-old earlier this week and was immediately turned down by the Bluebirds. But Morison believes the way in which the deal was aired in public has left the player with a burden to carry when he returns to action after recovering from a knee injury.

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.
