Wales triathlon team announced for Commonwealth Games


The five triathletes who will represent Wales at next month’s Commonwealth Games have been announced, joining paratriathlete Rhys Jones and his guide Rhys James at Birmingham 2022 following the paratriathlon announcement last month.

Olivia Mathias, Issy Morris and Non Stanford have been confirmed as representing Wales in the in women’s race, while Dominic Coy and Iestyn Harrett will compete in the men’s race when the individual triathlon events take place on Friday 29 July.

Mathias, Stanford and Harrett were all part of the Welsh mixed relay team which finished sixth at the 2018 Commonwealth Games four years ago, when Stanford was the country’s sole representative in the individual races, finishing eighth.

For Morris and Coy, Birmingham will be their first time competing at a Commonwealth Games, along with Rhys Jones, who had previously been announced as competing in the men’s PTVI alongside his guide Rhys James.

Today’s announcement is the latest team announcement ahead of Birmingham 2022 where all Home Nations will be represented in both triathlon and paratriathlon when the Commonwealth Games get underway on 28 July.

Beth Potter was the first athlete to be announced for Scotland and it's been confirmed she will be joined in Birmingham by Sophia Green, Cameron Main, Grant Sheldon and paratriathlete Alison Peasgood in Birmingham.

Jonny Brownlee, Sophie Coldwell, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee were the first Team England athletes to be announced at the start of the year and they’ll be joined in Birmingham by Dave Ellis (guided by Luke Pollard), Oscar Kelly (guided by Charlie Harding), Katie Crowhurst and Melissa Reid who have been confirmed in paratriathlon.
