Commonwealth Games 2002: Swimming: Wales' miracle hopes sunk.

THE miracle Wales were hoping for in the women's 4x200m freestyle relay failed to happen after they predictably missed out on a medal in the final.

The team of Bethan Coole, Catrin Davies, Mackenzie Howe and Rebecca Jason finished fourth in the final by a clear gap behind Canada, Australia and Games record-breakers England. Davies clocked the fastest Welsh leg of 2mins 4.57 secs.

Newport's Coole was also in action in the 100m fly where she finished seventh in her semifinal, just behind emerging Bridgend talent Gemma Howells, still only 14, who missed out on a place in the final by less than a second.

Meanwhile Steven Evans clocked 52.89 in his 100m freestyle semi-final.

But it wasn't enough to reach the final.
