Commonwealth Games: Wales Set New Overseas Medal Record – congratulations we are proudšŸ‘

A silver for rhythmic gymnast Laura Halford in the hoop gave Wales a 26th medal on the Gold Coast.Ā  This beats their previous Commonwealth Games overseas record set in Auckland in 1990.

She chose the trackĀ  ‘Ave Maria’.Ā  Perfect for her stylish routine in this competition.

An amazing achievement. Wales is a strong competitor in the Gold Coast Games.

Wales finished day nine on 29 medals with three more guaranteed in boxing.

Laura: I am just so, so happy.Ā  I was tiny bit disappointed with the result. It was so close at the end.Ā  I was a tiny bit upset. But now I am just so happy.Ā  I really wanted to come here and enjoy every second of it.

I definitely put a lot of pressure on myself. Not really from anyone else.Ā  Just myself.Ā  Sometimes it’s been a bit of a nightmare in the gym. But I think now this medal definitely really, all worth it.Ā 

What do you think of Laura’s performance?Ā  Isn’t she brilliant? Now she can relax and even eat pizza!
