BBC Sport - Commonwealth call-up delights visually impaired bowler Julie Thomas

'On a scale of 1 to 10, I'm somewhere near 15!'

Visually-impaired bowler Julie Thomas tells BBC Sport Wales she can't believe her call-up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Thomas, from Cardiff, was a headteacher until she suddenly lost her sight ten years ago.

In 2014 she took up bowls and has since won Welsh and British titles - as well as competing in a fully sighted county bowls league.

She says after her traumatic loss of sight, the sport of bowls has 'transformed her life'.
