WALES won a bronze medal on the final day of the Commonwealth Games with an impressive win over table tennis powerhouse Singapore.

Charlotte Carey and Anna Hursey took bronze in the women’s doubles as they secured a 3-1 win over their opponents from Singapore.

Hursey said: “We could easily have lost the first two sets, but we got through it. We both played absolutely amazing. We were both nervous but we got through it in the end."

The Cardiff teenager, who was selected for the 2018 Gold Coast games aged just 11, added: “We trained for it and we deserved to win that medal. I was so happy at the end. I was in tears, too.”

They are the first Welsh women to win a medal in the sport for Wales at the Commonwealth Games and had narrowly missed out on a medal in the team event.

At the games Wales won a total of 28 medals, with eight golds, six silver and 14 bronze. That is eight fewer overall than the record 36 medal haul at the 2018 Games in Australia.

Six of the medals came in the boxing ring, making it the nation's most successful boxing campaign since Cardiff hosted the Games in 1958.

Gold medal boxer Rosie Eccles will carry the Welsh flag at tonight's closing ceremony.
