Olympic gold medallist Dani Rowe hopes to compete for Wales at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, having previously represented England.

As Dani King, she won team pursuit gold at London 2012 but has focused on the road since 2014.

The 27-year-old married Welshman Matthew Rowe, brother of Team Sky rider Luke, in October.

“I’m hoping to be considered for selection for Team Wales for the 2018 Commonwealth Games,” Rowe tweeted.

“Wales is a country that has produced so many incredible cyclists and, if selected, I hope I can continue to do the country proud.”

Rowe, a three-time world champion on the track, will be riding for the Woawdeals Pro Cycling team, formerly known as WM3 Pro Cycling, for the 2018 season.

It is possible that Rowe could double up on track and road for Wales at the Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast, which start on 4 April.

“My connections with Wales and Welsh Cycling go back to 2009 when I started to be coached by Courtney Rowe – the father of my husband Matt,” Rowe said.

“I have therefore had a strong affinity and love for the country where I now live and call home, for the whole of my professional cycling career.”
