-We'll follow the Welsh cyclists...
-..competing for the British
-Championship in Bradford last week.
-Not a food chef but a Chef de
-Mission joins me, Gerwyn Owen.
-You will lead the Wales team
-at the Commonwealth Youth Games.
-Sorry for the bad jokes.
-It sounds like an exciting year
-Absolutely, to lead the team
-to the Bahamas...
-..it's a good foundation
-for young athletes.
-We're hoping to take
-around 40 athletes over.
-I'm really looking forward.
-I'm really looking forward.
-Thanks for joining us.
-We start with rugby tonight.
-The Scarlets suffered heartbreak
-Their game with Saracens
-finished in a draw.
-The final score was 22-22.
-That means they're out of
-the European Champions Cup.
-Saracens scored a try in the
-final minute to secure the draw.
-We start with the
-Foster's Challenge Cup on Clwb.
-The pool games come to an end
-It's quite a race to the semi-final.
-A win for Cross Keys at Pandy Park
-would give them the lead in Pool 1.
-The home team got off to the
-perfect start after just 60 seconds.
-Fullback, James McCarthy,
-with the well-timed little kick...
-..and Matthew Powell scoring.
-Bedwas struck back
-within five minutes.
-Good passing by the forwards...
-..leading eventually to a try
-for the centre James S Dixon.
-The home side weren't going
-to be denied though.
-Leon Andrews set up this chance
-for Phil Williams.
-However, four tries for the visitors
-meant they claimed...
-..two bonus points in defeat.
-Despite that victory for Cross Keys,
-Bedwas or Newport will progress.
-That depends on the result of
-the final pool match on Wednesday.
-Llandovery started well with a try
-for Joseff Powell under the posts.
-A win for the home team
-would have seen them progress...
-..but the visitors
-had different ideas.
-Richard Rees set up this chance
-for Jack Price.
-The centre crossed to frustrate
-the hopes of the Quins.
-These two were scrabbling about
-at the bottom of Pool 2...
-..but Will Lewis intercepted and
-scored to give Swansea the lead.
-Llanelli bounced back taking
-advantage of a Swansea mistake.
-Good handling by the backs set up
-Tom Howell for a sprint to the line.
-That gave Llanelli
-the lead at half-time.
-The Scarlets were reduced to 14
-after a yellow card for Nathan Hart.
-Swansea took full advantage.
-A great run by Tudor Hughes
-setting up Jon Bayliss...
-..who offloads to Rhodri Wells
-for the score.
-That ensured a win for the Whites.
-That win for Llandovery means the
-Quins still need to beat Llanelli...
-..to make sure of
-reaching the knock-out rounds.
-Ebbw were the visitors to The Wern
-to take on the leaders in Pool 3.
-Things looked promising for the
-home team when Jake Crockett scored.
-There was a yellow card awarded
-to both sides in this game...
-..but Merthyr won comfortably
-with several tries to their name...
-..including this one for Matt Dwyer.
-Bargoed beat Pontypridd which means
-Merthyr have already won the pool.
-Cardiff's final home fixture
-of the competition...
-..ended in disappointment
-for the Blue and Blacks.
-Scrivens and Murphy combining
-early on to score for Bridgend.
-Cardiff responded with a try
-thanks to the quick thinking...
-..of their debutant
-fly half Oliver Jenkins.
-A quick tap and a try.
-However, Bridgend eventually emerged
-as the victors.
-They also scored the
-best try of the game.
-A searing run
-down the middle by Joe Gatt.
-Matthew Edwards was there to
-give it back to him for the score.
-Neath took the early lead
-The Wizards struck back after a good
-run by Matthew Jenkins on the wing.

-to score under the posts.
-Neath were the next to score.
-Chris Morgans took a quick tap
-and offloaded to Gavin Evans.
-He was held up short of the line.
-Scott Hicks was there to score
-his second try of the game...
-..for the Welsh All Blacks.
-The visitors weren't
-going to be denied.
-A kick by Steff Williams
-found Shaun Pearce.
-The winger sped away
-for his second try.
-That sealed the win for the Wizards.
-It's all to play for in Pool 4.
-One point separates
-the two at the top.
-Lowri Wynn there. The final round
-will be on Clwb next week.
-I'm joined by Gerwyn Owen.
-He is the Chef de Mission
-for the Welsh team...
-..at the Commonwealth Youth Games.
-I remember we showed highlights
-of the Commonwealth Youth Games...
-..from Samoa two years ago on Clwb.
-It looks like a great occasion.
-It's certainly a good foundation
-for the young athletes.
-It teaches them how to cope
-in multi-sport events.
-Usually, they go to some games
-..and it's just their sport.
-To be multi-sport, going to the
-Bahamas helps the trip too.
-The experience they get
-from these games...
-..helps them develop as athletes.
-The names who have competed
-there in the past say it all.
-Geraint Thomas is one.
-It's quite a stage
-for young athletes.
-Certainly, Geraint Thomas
-as you say.
-Elinor Barker, Jazz Carlin,
-Chloe Tutton, I could go on.
-We've competed at these games
-..since the first
-in Edinburgh in 2000.
-is the experience gained...
-..they can then develop
-into experienced athletes.
-That's particularly the case
-on the senior level.
-The people I've just named have all
-been seen at the Olympics too.
-They don't just compete for Wales
-but for Great Britain too.
-You're the Chef de Mission
-so take care of the team.
-What does that mean?
-A little of everything?
-Yes, I'm not Dudley,
-I don't cook for them.
-Chef de Mission means chief of
-the mission or head of delegation.
-You lead the team.
-I ensure they get there safely...
-..compete to their best ability
-and come home safely.
-We ensure that the atmosphere
-and environment is good for them.
-That's how they perform
-at their best.
-We certainly try
-to boost the athletes...
-..to ensure that they represent
-Wales and believe in Wales too.
-That's our hashtag, #creducymru...
-..it's to make sure they go there
-believing in themselves.
-I like that hashtag.
-I'm sure there'll be a chance
-for you to head...
-..to the Bahamas
-to keep an eye on things.
-Someone has to.
-I get that privilege!
-Unfortunately, I have to head out
-at the end of this month.
-It sounds good,
-but I fly in on Sunday night.
-I'm there for two days.
-I come back on Wednesday afternoon.
-I've got two and a half days to make
-sure everything's going to plan.
-I'll need to make connections...
-..and make sure we get the best for
-the team when we're there in July.
-We won nine medals last time.
-Everyone likes to count medals
-in any competition.
-Will Wales have a strong team
-Absolutely, we don't give
-the youngsters a medal target.
-The experience they're gaining
-is the target.
-We took 15 athletes last time,
-we've got 40 this time.
-a Women's Rugby Sevens Team.
-There are requirements for them...
-..to reach a certain standard
-to play for Wales.
-That's before they even
-go out to the Bahamas.
-will be medals coming home.
-40 heading out, that's a big team.
-Thanks very much, we'll have more
-from Gerwyn later on.
-It's time for some ice hockey now.
-It's been going well
-for the Cardiff Devils this season.
-They're in the Elite League.
-Christmas and New Year
-have not been so kind.
-They had a huge game in the capital
-It was 1st vs 2nd,
-Belfast Giants were the visitors.
-It was another big game
-in a packed stadium.
-Belfast got the first chance
-but the Devils held their ground.
-They scored one goal each
-in the first period.
-What a goal! Matthew Myers
-with this wonderful strike.
-It's no surprise
-that they celebrated.
-Myers had just stepped on to the ice
-and made an impression instantly.
-His puck whistled past the keeper,
-The Devils picked up their second in
-the second period.
-finished another slick move.
-All was well in the capital city.
-Things changed with Belfast hauling
-them back within two minutes.
-The visitors kept possession
-for a long time.
-They didn't really
-threaten the Devils.
-With the defence
-dragged to the side...
-..there was space for Chris Higgins
-to get one back.
-Patrick Bordeleau was banned
-for the Devils.
-He's the usual enforcer.
-It was still
-a very competitive fixture.
-The crowd of 3,000 were over the
-moon with Gleason Fourmier here.
-The defender clearly trying
-to stamp his authority on the game.
-I think he succeeded.
-It's incredibly close between
-the two teams in the table.
-That was evident on the ice too.
-Belfast were pressing at the start
-of the final period.
-Anything the Devils could do,
-the Giants could too.
-A shot from distance by Jonathan
-Boxhill tied the game at 2-2.
-A beautiful shot by Boxhill.
-There was no doubt that Belfast
-were in charge by now.
-With the end of the game nearing,
-the Giants really went for it.
-They almost took the victory
-The ice was red hot with the men
-and sticks all over the place.
-Somehow, the puck stayed out.
-It was 2-2 at the end of the game
-which meant overtime.
-The Devils got a chance...
-..but goalkeeper Whistle
-struck the right note.
-After that, it was a race between
-Fourmier and Chris Higgins.
-Despite the Devils man looking
-..Higgins got to the puck
-and Belfast took the game.
-Despite us not wanting
-to see the Devils lose...
-..who doesn't enjoy
-seeing a moon walk?
-The defence was criminal,
-just not smooth enough.
-In the end, this thriller
-was bad for the Devils.
-Sorry about the puns.
-Despite the loss,
-the Devils remain top.
-Next up is cyclo-cross.
-It's had quite a bit of attention
-here on Clwb and S4C recently.
-The races happen
-on a cross-country course.
-There was excitement
-in Abergavenny last year.
-You might remember that
-the UK Series started in Wales.
-Wales was represented in Bradford
-at last week's British Championship.
-The Championships took place
-in the Pennines.
-There were races across two days
-to challenge the old and the young.
-The first Welsh rider to venture
-into the mud was Eluned King.
-The Queen of Towy Riders won silver
-in the Girls Under 16 Championship.
-It was good, better than I expected.
-I thought maybe if I was lucky,
-I could get top five.
-This course is quite technical.
-I'm not a technical rider but
-I have been working on my skills.
-It was only with half a lap to go
-that I realised I had half a chance.
-Second place in the race
-for Towy Riders is Eluned King!
-The race I did here last year
-was a complete mudbath.
-When I saw that the National
-Championships were in Bradford...
-..I thought "Oh, God, not Bradford
-again with all that mud".
-But it was a good course this year.
-Maddie Osborn from
-the Abergavenny Road Club...
-in the Girls U14 race.
-However, she is only 12 and seen
-as a future star of the sport.
-I did really well. I felt like
-I had a really good race today.
-My cleats were loose, I couldn't get
-clipped in and they kept slipping.
-After that, I felt that
-it went really well.
-I'm only first year...
-..so it's good to get the experience
-for my second year of U14s.
-One of the founders of the
-Abergavenny Club is Graham Edwards.
-He has mentored some big names
-including Rachel and Becky James.
-He was competing too, in
-the Men's Veteran 50+ Championship.
-National Championships are always
-good, wherever they're held.
-People from all over
-come together over two days.
-It's an amazing atmosphere
-and to ride in it is incredible.
-You'd never believe how
-tough it is out there today.
-To see Maddie do so well is amazing.
-She is only 12 years of age.
-A stunning ride.
-From the old to the young and
-to another Abergavenny rider...
-..Tom Crapper, who is 13.
-He loves riding his bike and
-obviously loves competing too.
-It was my kind of course because
-I'm a technical kind of person.
-We've got a lot of terrain by us.
-I've competed in roughly eight now
-and I'm really enjoying them.
-The Holy Spirit wasn't in the mud
-but the Son followed the Father.
-Paul Crapper won
-Community Coach of the Year...
-..at the 2016 Wales Sport Awards.
-Two of his pupils were here too.
-Two more from the James Dynasty,
-Megan and Ffion.
-It does suit me. I like the hills
-and I like technical, muddy races.
-It's pretty much
-the perfect course for me.
-I don't want to say too much
-It suits Meg as well.
-She is really good technically.
-I think it's a great course
-but I'm not sure if it suits me.
-There's a couple too many hills.
-I'm just going to do what I can.
-Talking of the James family, doing
-the dirty work behind the scenes...
-..and clearing up the mud
-was the father, David.
-If anything happens to our bikes,
-he'll be there to change it.
-If it gets wetter overnight
-and gets muddier...
-..we'll have to change our bikes
-every couple of laps.
-He'll be in the pits
-helping us out at all times.
-The World Championships are
-in Luxembourg later this month.
-A lot of it goes
-on how we do tomorrow.
-If we get a really good result,
-we've a chance of being selected.
-That's the aim.
-The women are ready
-for the U23 race.
-This Bradford course, according
-to the men who raced earlier...
-..is a very technical one.
-Ffion and Megan James, the two
-sisters in the red of Abergavenny...
-..are at the front
-early in this race.
-so much can change so quickly.
-Evie Richards has Ffion James
-right on her back wheel.
-Evie gets off her bike
-to go up the hill.
-She gets back on much quicker
-That shows the strength
-of Evie Richards...
-..who is wearing the rainbow colours
-of a world champion.
-She is starting to open up a gap.
-Here's a chance to see Megan James.
-Oh, she's fallen
-at the bottom of the hill.
-Maybe that is the end of Megan's
-hopes in the Junior race.
-She is back on and pushing hard...
-..but is it too late
-for a podium place?
-Despite the conditions, Evie
-Richards is showing her experience.
-She leads the way and Ffion James
-is now in third place.
-The blue shirt of Amira Mellor
-disappears around the corner.
-Evie Richards defends her British
-Championship here in Bradford.
-She'll defend the rainbow jersey in
-Luxembourg at the end of the month.
-I wonder if there will be a place
-in the team for Ffion James.
-She finishes third.
-It was a really tough course,
-both physically and technically.
-There was no rest on the descents...
-..because you were concentrating
-so hard to stay on your bike.
-Evie is the U23 World Champion
-and going really fast.
-She ended up getting away so I
-had a battle with Amira Mellor...
-..who ended up getting second.
-I got third so I was relatively
-pleased with that.
-There we go, plenty of excitement
-in the cyclo-cross.
-Ffion James mentioned hoping
-to be chosen for the British team.
-She has been chosen
-for the World Championship team.
-She'll be competing in Luxembourg
-at the end of the month.
-Good luck to her.
-I'm joined by Gerwyn Owen.
-He is in charge of the Wales team
-at the Commonwealth Youth Games.
-Gerwyn, we saw some cycling there.
-is one of Wales' stars.
-Disappointing news that next year...
-..he won't be competing at the
-Commonwealth Games due to a clash.
-No, it's a disappointment
-for the team.
-The good thing is that Welsh cycling
-has some good depth.
-What happened over the weekend
-I think it will be the women's turn
-on the Gold Coast.
-Elinor Barker and Becky James in
-particular will be going for medals.
-It's a shame but, I think
-there's strength in Welsh Cycling.
-I think we'll still make the podium
-at the Gold Coast games.
-You will be there too. Bahamas
-this year, Gold Coast next year.
-How close are the two competitions?
-You work on one and go
-to the other too...
-..how much help is that
-in your role?
-What we try to do with the Wales
-team is ensure that the image...
-..atmosphere and environment
-are good for the team.
-We're hoping whoever goes
-to the Bahamas...
-..and maybe break through
-to the Gold Coast...
-..can get the same support
-and atmosphere from Team Wales...
-..to ensure they perform
-at their best.
-We're trying to carry that image on.
-Our main aim is the Commonwealth
-Games on the Gold Coast.
-But every games is a stepping stone.
-But every games is a stepping stone.
-We're looking forward to that.
-We're off on the ocean waves now
-and the Vendee Globe sailing race.
-We've followed it since they set off
-around the world in November.
-Welshman Alex Thomson
-is hoping to create history...
-..as the first British sailor
-to win the race.
-In the Vendee Globe...
-..it's still a battle between
-Armel Le Cleac'h and Alex Thomson.
-crossed the Equator first...
-..but the Welshman was closing in.
-Champagne day at the moment,
-we're going pretty fast.
-It's a bit patchy
-but still going pretty good.
-Still working on the foil.
-You can see that down here.
-The routing is saying it's about 11
-or 12 days into the Sables d'Olonne.
-Hopefully, there will be
-an opportunity to catch up.
-Hopefully, Armel will be
-slowing down shortly...
-..and I will be still going strong.
-Keep your fingers crossed.
-I'm working hard. See what happens.
-Alex wasn't the only one
-in good spirits.
-Jeremie Beyon, in third place...
-..had cut 500 miles on the top two
-in three days...
-..before the weather
-slowed him down.
-It was a tough night.
-I watched the clouds gather above me
-and in time...
-..I was at a standstill
-for many hours.
-No wind at all.
-It wasn't an easy journey.
-Armel and Alex now
-have to conquer the Doldrums.
-It's another physical
-and mental challenge.
-Not all plain sailing at the moment.
-Had a terrible night last night.
-I did one or two knots for most of
-the night and into this morning.
-Today's not been too bad.
-There's been some wind.
-Hopefully, the next 24 hours won't
-be as painful as the model suggests.
-With Alex Thomson's Hugo Boss within
-64 miles of Banque Populaire...
-..Armel Le Cleac'h
-is getting worried.
-Nothing is easy. It's an unusual
-situation which is also worrying.
-I am at my wits' end as far as the
-weather forecasts are concerned.
-If things went Alex's way,
-it would be hard to take, mentally.
-But that's the way it is.
-Despite the fierce racing,
-Alex takes a moment...
-..to watch his new friend
-showing off his skills.
-This is my bird friend
-who is a flying fish hunter.
-There he goes,
-he'll dive down to a flying fish.
-Go on. Go on.
-Like a bird of prey.
-Oh, there he goes.
-Almost as remarkable is the fact
-that only about 100 miles...
-..separate Armel and Alex
-after 70 days of racing.
-There is less than
-a week's sailing...
-..before they return
-to Les Sables d'Olonne.
-Only a brave man would predict
-whether the Welsh or the French...
-..will be the first
-to cross the finishing line.
-Good luck to Alex Thomson
-as that race nears its conclusion.
-Gerwyn Owen will be at the Youth
-Commonwealth Games this summer.
-You'll be there as a volunteer but
-your main job is at Plas Menai...
-..as Academy Manager
-for Disability Sport Wales.
-Your officials are always on
-the lookout for talent in Wales...
-..even when shopping
-at the supermarket.
-We've been looking at sailing.
-Stephen Thomas has been
-to the last three Paralympic Games.
-We found him
-whilst shopping at Tesco.
-Someone noticed that he
-had prosthetic legs.
-Here he is out in Rio.
-He was a rugby player before
-he suffered from meningitis.
-He had to have both legs amputated.
-We knew there was potential.
-He was over six feet tall
-and very muscly.
-Sailing was looking for someone
-with Stephen Thomas' profile.
-We went up to him and asked if he
-would like to try sailing.
-He said he'd never even
-been in a boat!
-He didn't like going on the water
-because it made him feel sick.
-We put him in touch with the British
-team and the rest is history.
-It strikes me that they achieve
-so much in the world of sport...
-..but every day is a battle
-for people with disabilities.
-It's a huge leap for them
-to step into the sporting world.
-They have many hurdles to overcome,
-whatever their disability...
-..just to live from day to day.
-When we at Disability Sport Wales
-ask them to take up sport...
-..it can be difficult for them.
-There is so much on the horizon and
-it's great to hear about your work.
-Gerwyn will stay with us and after
-the break, we have some football.
-Clwb Ni is next on the show.
-This week it's
-Deeside Ice Skating Club.
-The club was formed back in 1974.
-The year I was born.
-That's over 40 years ago.
-I started skating at the age of 11.
-Not long after the club started.
-It was started
-by a group of parents.
-We've gone on to do shows.
-I've gone from being in the shows
-to choreographing numbers...
-..and then on to directing
-the show for a number of years.
-It's great for the kids to
-get some experience of skating...
-..in front of audiences
-and getting more confidence.
-It's the first stage
-they'll have ever been on...
-..and it's a big stage to fill.
-When Dancing on Ice was on skaters
-just kept walking through the door.
-Now, it's a lot harder and you have
-to fight for every bit of business.
-We've done a lot of promotion this
-At the end of March we had 36
-skaters going into the new season.
-We've now got 75.
-We started an on-ice cheer-leading
-team for the Dragons hockey team.
-We are definitely the first in Wales
-and as far as we know...
-..the first on-ice cheer-leading
-team in the country.
-We started the synchronised skating
-a couple of months ago.
-Skating together and doing
-the same steps at the same time.
-It's proved quite popular.
-We're hoping to form teams
-and compete later on in the year.
-I saw some skating
-and I just wanted to try it.
-I started when I was eight.
-It's fun because it's totally
-different to everything else.
-You make friends quite quickly.
-I got a little bit nervous
-but then I made lots of friends.
-Then I got really good at ice
-skating and I just loved it.
-It's a getaway from it all.
-If you're getting upset about
-other people from school...
-..it's a nice place
-to get away from that.
-You get to see
-all your true friends.
-When you do comps
-you get cheers from everyone.
-The parents are fabulous.
-They run the committee and
-put in so much time and effort.
-There's aunties, uncles,
-grandmas and grandads.
-They all help out.
-It makes it a nice,
-friendly place to be.
-It's a great community for kids.
-Thanks to the Deeside Ice Skating
-Club for the warm welcome.
-They weren't at all frosty.
-We aren't moving
-very far away either.
-It's off to Wrexham next
-and The Racecourse.
-North Ferriby United
-were the visitors yesterday.
-Hare to Armstrong.
-Oliver is in support.
-Oliver got the ball back.
-He found Bateson in space.
-Bateson beat his man.
-That was an important tackle
-Carrington to McLeod.
-Carrington continues his run.
-He gets the ball back.
-The cross and the header out
-falls to Rooney!
-Watson with the save.
-Penn to McLeod.
-McLeod's first touch found
-Carrington in space.
-Carrington to White.
-The ball falls for Rutherford.
-Back to McLeod!
-What a wonderful goal.
-That's a great first goal
-for Wrexham by Izale McLeod.
-After thirty minutes,
-the home team are ahead.
-I doubt you'll see a better shot
-than this one this weekend.
-He spreads it to Carrington
-Carrington collects the pass.
-The cross went in to the far post.
-It came out to Rooney!
-That's another outstanding save...
-..from the young goalkeeper
-Penn to Carrington.
-Rooney had more than enough time
-Rooney, he feints
-and almost fools himself!
-The shot was pretty simple
-for Watson in the end.
-Carrington to Barry.
-McLeod offers himself.
-Barry gets the space.
-This is Rooney. Rooney.
-Watson collects it.
-Jennings found White in space.
-Rutherford makes a run,
-the ball rebounds to White.
-It's an outstanding save
-by Rory Watson.
-At the moment, the young goalkeeper
-is the only thing...
-..between North Ferriby
-and a hammering by Wrexham.
-Rooney with the ball forward
-Massanka against Watson.
-Once again, Watson, who's having
-a stormer, makes the save.
-Rooney takes it short.
-He gets the pass back.
-Rooney crosses to Jennings.
-Jennings mistimed his run.
-He almost scored with his chest.
-Hare, that's pretty slack
-from North Ferriby.
-Massanka has a chance to
-run at the defence.
-It's hit the post!
-Dear me, that would have been
-a wonderful goal on his debut.
-His shot goes wide.
-Two more great chances for Wrexham.
-was pushed out to the post.
-Rooney's curled effort
-just missed the target.
-Rooney has bags of room.
-He is enjoying himself
-He goes past the defence.
-The save from Watson.
-He's determined to try for a goal.
-Maybe he should have passed it, he
-did have a free red shirt near by.
-We asked the lads before the game
-for three points and a clean sheet.
-It was a chance to get back-to-back
-wins for the first time this season.
-They've gone and done it.
-If the goal had been scored
-in the Premiership...
-..you'd see it a few times.
-He needs to get match fit and sharp.
-I hope he's scoring goals
-like that on a regular basis...
-..before the end of the season.
-Wrexham are finally closer
-to the play-offs than relegation.
-They have a derby
-in Chester on Saturday.
-That huge derby match will be
-on Clwb 2 next Sunday night.
-Wrexham versus Chester,
-I can't wait.
-Gerwyn Owen has been
-keeping us company on Clwb 2.
-Thank you for sharing
-your valuable time with us.
-You're preparing for that big youth
-event with Wales in the Bahamas.
-The success of athletes
-like Tanni Grey-Thompson...
-..and Aled Sion Davies has
-given the impression that Wales...
-..is a leading light
-in the paralympic world.
-Do you agree with that opinion?
-Our aim is to make
-all sport inclusive.
-The challenge is to
-make it all-inclusive.
-Both at the lowest levels
-and at the very top.
-People like Tanni and Aled
-have been there waving the flag...
-..for people with disabilities.
-You have these
-exciting events coming up now.
-Aled Sion is an inspiration in
-either British or Welsh colours.
-Most athletes who have competed at
-that level tell me that they were...
-..most proud when they
-turned out in Welsh colours.
-I think we all feel
-something a bit special...
-..when we go out there
-and wave the Welsh flag.
-Aled Sion is quite a character.
-Tanni Grey was there first though.
-But you need role models and
-characters like Aled Sion Davies.
-A character is
-the best description of Aled.
-He never forgets his roots.
-He really encourages
-other athletes to excel...
-..and they don't have to be
-paralympic athletes either.
-He conveys a strong character.
-We have to cherish him and because
-of his particular discipline...
-..he could still be out there
-competing for twenty years.
-He's someone to be proud of.
-He certainly one of our current
-stars that children look up to.
-I know there's
-a lot of work still to do...
-..but do you see the landscape
-changing for Paralympic athletes?
-After we came back from Rio,
-everyone was proud of the team.
-The Paralympic team
-and the Olympic team.
-They are athletes
-at the end of the day.
-Thanks very much for joining us.
-Good luck this year and next year.
-It's a busy period for Gerwyn.
-It's a busy period of sport
-for S4C too.
-Sgorio is back tomorrow night
-and next Saturday.
-We'll see you next Sunday on Clwb.
