Sally Peake is heading to her third Commonwealth Games having been selected among a strong 21-man team to represent Wales at the Gold Coast 2018 Games in Australia.

Hammer thrower [Carys Parry] is set for her fourth Games and will take on the role of both athlete and coach in Australia as she also guides newly-crowned Welsh men’s hammer record-holder Osian Jones.

The 2010 400m hurdles champion Dai Greene has also been selected, provided he achieves a Commonwealth Games A standard before the team’s departure in March.

Long jumper Rebecca Chapman will head to her first Games as the proud holder of the Welsh record having added 2cm to Gill Regan’s 35-year-old mark with 6.54m last summer.

David Omoregie and Caryl Granville will compete in hurdles events, while Seren Bundy-Davies, like Greene, is chasing a qualifying mark prior to the Games to confirm her selection over 400m.

Six para-athletes were announced as part of Team Wales in November and include Paralympic and world javelin gold medallist Hollie Arnold and long jump world champion Olivia Breen.
