Lighter. Faster. Stronger!

There’s never been a dull moment following the sporting career of Welshpool’s Adele Nicoll who showed that her bid to compete at next year’s Commonwealth Games and the Olympic Winter Games is on track.

The 24-year-old has emerged from the pandemic an incredible two-and-a-half stone lighter thanks to a new training regime as part of Team GB’s bobsleigh team.

But as she continues her efforts to make the 2022 Beijing Winter Games squad, Adele lived up to her word yesterday that she is far from giving up her Athletics career as she won the shot put gold in the Team Wales vest at the ‘Battle of the Nations’ held at Loughborough.

The season curtain raiser showed that she is in great shape to try and bid for a place at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games for Wales, which would complete a unique double of taking part in both major multi-sport events during the same year.

“Yesterday was amazing,” Adele told us this morning. “It was the first time competing as Team Wales since Covid-19.

“My two best throws were 16.10m and 16.14m, which is a big season's best since switching over to bobsleigh.

“My goal now is to chip away at it until I am at my personal best (pre-bobsleigh and 2.5 stone weight loss) which was 16.34m. Then I'll look to push towards 2022 Commonwealth Games qualification.

“There are years of dedication and hard work behind me, with many more to come! I'm extremely excited about this year, I hope to do all of my friends and family proud.”

Adele enjoys considerable local support and would like to thank: Great Fitness, Rikki Lloyds, Dawson Shanahan, Carpenter and Paterson, Pure Sport CBD and Beast & Bulk Nutrition.
