A former Rydal Penrhos pupil has been selected to the Wales squad for the upcoming Commonwealth Games.

Helen Phillips, Chair of the Commonwealth Games Wales Board, said: “We are very excited about today’s announcement. This marks a major step towards completing the full Team Wales squad for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

“Being selected for Team Wales is a huge honour for these elite athletes, and is a result of all the hard work and dedication that they have already put into training and competing at the highest level of their sport.

“We thank all the coaches and support staff, national governing bodies, Sport Wales – as well as the athletes’ friends and family – who have been instrumental in helping them along the way, and who’ll continue to give their support throughout their journey to, and during the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

“The Team includes some well-established Welsh sporting champions, as well as highly promising budding talent which reflects the success and progress of sport here in Wales. The standard of athletes across the sports bodes well for a successful games and a continuation of Wales’s presence on the podium for many years to come.”
