Leanda Cave has confirmed that she is preparing to help form a Welsh team for 2014 Commonwealth Games. The Ironman and Ironman 70.3 World Champion is hoping to team up with Helen Jenkins and Non Stanford for the Games, which will be held in Glasgow in 2014.
Cave has already competed at two Commonwealth Games, winning a silver in 2002.
“I race about four Olympic distance triathlons a year and am confident I can make the Commonwealth Games team,” she told Wales Online.
“I want to race in Glasgow and it would be great to be back on home soil and race with Helen and Non, we could have a really good team.”
Cave has also refused to rule out having a go at qualifying for the 2016 Olympics. Describing Olympic qualification as a “dream”, she admits that there are a few barriers to her earning a spot on the 2016 team heading to Rio.
“I have ticked a lot of other boxes but have always wanted to go to a Games and that would complete things.
“Potentially I could make it but whether I am too old is the big question.”
