Special talents

Wednesday 11 June 2014

Did you know that five of Cardiff's young athletes are the best in Britain - not in athletics, though, but in singing.

Yes, Cesia Lewis, Sara Jones, Carwyn Hastings, Megan Hastings and Luned Jones are all members of the Ysgol Iolo Morgannwg, Cowbridge, school choir that won this year's BBC Songs of Praise junior choir of the year competition.

The school had never entered the competition before but sent a tape of the choir singing Sing Hosanna to the BBC and this was accepted as one of the six best in Britain to take part in the semi final in Birmingham. Three choirs went forward to the final that was broadcast live on Songs of Praise and Ysgol Iolo Morgannwg came home with the winner's trophy. In the final, they sang Cadwyn Ddwylo (Holding Hands).

Megan and Carwyn Hastings competed in the Welsh Junior League match at Newport last weekend with Megan winning her 75m race.

Let's hope that all five do as well in athletics as they have in singing.

Well done.
