Commonwealth Dragons

Carolyn Hitt explores the story of Wales in the Commonwealth Games from the biggest names to the less famous faces who played their part in Welsh success. Broadcast as a curtain raiser to the Commonwealth Games on Australia's Gold Coast, we hear how Wales is one of just six countries to have competed in every Games since 1930. Athletes including Kirsty Wade, Nicole Cooke and Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson recall why competing for Wales is different to wearing the GB vest and we delve deep into the archives to hear stories from eight decades of Welsh success.
