Golden futures for trio.
THREE potential sporting champions have been added to the Elite Cymru programme, which is funded by the Sports Council for Wales.
Anglesey teenager Eifion Mon, 14, who became the first Welsh sailor to win yachting's Topper class world championship last summer, is the youngest of the recruits, each of whom will benefit from National Lottery funding and back-up support.
Mon is already regarded as a potential member of Great Britain's Olympic yachting squad.
Also Anglesey-based is weight lifter Andrew Goswell, ranked British No 1 in the 94-kilo category.
The 30-year old, from Holyhead, improved his personal best to achieve a 300 kg lift and he has set his sights on winning a gold medal for Wales at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games next year.
Wrexham teenager Robbie Gallagher has Olympic ambitions in judo. The 18-year old has recently begun a full-time training programme under the tutelage of Wales national coach Valerij Vostrikov.
Gallagher is hoping for medal success in this summer's junior European Championships.
