A student at Howell's School, Llandaff in Cardiff has been selected to represent Wales at the Commonwealth Youth Games later this summer. Sarah Omoregie, 17, who recently broke the British U18 Shot Put record at the Loughborough International Athletics meet, will be competing as part of the 39-strong team travelling to the games in the Bahamas.
Sarah is the younger sister of Welsh 110m hurdler David Omoregie, who is expected to race in the World Championships in London this August. Her brother said: "Sarah has excelled over the last couple of years and I am really proud of her. She is in a good position to get a medal at the Commonwealth Youth Games. If she keeps progressing she can throw really far in the future."
The Games, which are held in the Bahamas, will take place from 18th to 23rd July. The event will feature swimming, athletics, boxing, judo, tennis and women's rugby.
"It's very encouraging to see the calibre of young Welsh athletes coming through," said chair of Commonwealth Games Wales, Helen Phillips.
"Team Wales did particularly well in the 2015 Youth Games in Samoa, bringing home nine medals to Wales and delivering some outstanding performances. I have every confidence that our athletes will do their very best and make us proud once again this summer."
