Welsh sprinting sensation Jeremiah Azu’s coach Gareth Walton has another interest in the European Championships on Friday – the fate of the Ukrainian relay squad. Walton, who played a role in preparing individual bronze medal winner Azu as part of the Great Britain 4 x 100m team, has also been sharing his wisdom with another nation. They are the squad from war-torn Ukraine, who have honed their skills at Cardiff Met University in readiness to take their marks in Munich on Friday morning for the heats.
Steve Morison believes Cardiff City have “a swagger” that is helping build an impressive start to their Championship season. The Bluebirds manager was happy with a 0-0 draw away to West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday night, a result that kept his new-look team inside the early play-off positions. Despite a huge turnover of players in the summer – conducted on a shoestring budget – Morison’s team have lost just once in their opening four matches and have collected seven points.
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.
