In this podcast Russell Todd, Sporting Heritage CIC’s podcaster-in-residence, chats to his next door neighbour in Cardiff, Colin Morgan, about memories of sport at Aberystwyth University, where they both studied Geography – Colin in the 1950s, Russell in the 1990s.

As part of the #yoursportingstory campaign, Colin recalls his memories of competing for the University’s Athletics team against other Welsh universities and colleges; the inter-team banter with the rugby boys; and the home remedies they used to treat injuries and soothe aching muscles.

Yn y podlediad hwn, mae Russell Todd, podledwr preswyl Sporting Heritage CIC, yn trafod â’i gymydog drws nesaf yng Nghaerdydd, Colin Morgan, am atgofion o chwaraeon ym Mhrifysgol Aberystwyth, lle astudiai’r ddau Ddaearyddiaeth – Colin yn y 1950au, Russell yn y 1990au.

Fel rhan o’r ymgyrch #YourSportingStory, mae Colin yn adalwad ei atgofion o gystadlu i dîm Athletau’r Brifysgol yn erbyn prifysgolion a cholegau Cymru eraill; y cyfleusterau a fyddai ar gael i fyfyrwyr yna; a’r dewis o chwaraeon ar gynnig yn y dyddiau hynny.
