BETHANY MOULE TARGETING WELSH SENIOR RECORD AFTER NEW PERSONAL BEST
24 Nov 2020

Skewen javelin star Bethany Moule was blown away by a massive personal best at the British Championships and hopes she can complete the set of Welsh records next year. The 18-year-old threw the pole 51.27 metres in the third round in Manchester to break the Welsh Under-20s record and win bronze, her maiden national medal. Bethany holds Under-15s, Under-17s and Under-20s records, and now has her sights set on the senior mark.

HOLLY MANDERS: "REACHING THE ENGLAND TEAM IS WHAT YOU DREAM OF"
19 Nov 2020

England Under-19s footballer Holly Manders is hoping her switch to Sunderland will pay off having opted to increase her chances of first-team action. Midfielder Holly previously plied her trade with FA Women’s Championship side Durham but dropped down a division to feature for the Black Cats in the 2020-21 season. The 19-year-old is hoping their youth-first mantra will pay off in the FA Women’s National League and gain them promotion from the second tier.

ANNABEL CARTHY ON OLYMPIC INSPIRATIONS AND CHANGING EQUESTRIAN PERCEPTIONS
18 Nov 2020

Annabel Carthy wants to banish the perception of equestrian as an upper-class sport. The Wilmslow star is currently on an intensive 12-week training course with former world champion Andrew Nicholson in Marlborough, having enjoyed searing success on the international stage since 2018. Equestrian is a sport many perceive to be laced with elitism and confined to a specific demographic – but Annabel has a message for aspiring young riders everywhere.

With the help of SportsAid, I did my thing. I didn’t come from a wealthy family, and there were times when I thought ‘I need a job’ but I stuck to my swimming. Thankfully it did pay off. It's about gambling and making sacrifices. I put a high risk in myself and invested the time in what was going to make the difference to my swimming.
