Bethan Davies

Cardiff's Bethan Davies secured a BRONZE Medal in the 20km Womens Walk today. Australia Gold Coast Athletics, on Currumbin Beach Front was the scene for the first athletic events of the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Bethan's last race before going to Australia was in Lugano, Switzerland finishing 3rd in very cold weather. 

Todays race was held in hot and humid conditions. Bethan was in 4th place for much of the race, but the race leader Claire Tallent (Australia) already on 2 (RED) cards, in making her final effort to win race, was (RED) carded for third time, and disqualified, 2km from finish.                                  

After the race, Bethan said, she was aware that walkers in front had a few (RED) cards, and kept to her pace, just doing her own thing, and hoped someone in front came unstuck, and they did.
