The Commonwealth's Youngest Competitor

When Anna Hursey made the Welsh team for the Commonwealth Games it created quite a stir in her local community. Grace Dent follows the lead-up to the Games and what happens there.

Anna Hursey has been playing table tennis for as long as she can remember and has managed to combine her school work with extended trips to train in China, where her mother is from and across Europe, where she can challenge herself against the top players.
