A busy Weekend (2)

Monday 14 November 2016

While his team mates were racing over the country Cardiff's Mike Kallenberg was representing Great Britain on Friday in the world 50k road race championships in the heat of Doha, where he finished an excellent sixth, a placing which improved both his position and time from last year’s 50k championships. Following an assured performance, 25-year-old Mike commented: "That was really tough tonight but I'm happy with my run and delighted that we are coming home with a silver medal."

Meanwhile, back on the country, the Cross Challenge took place on Saturday in Milton Keynes. The best performance came from Ryan Edwards in the under 13 boys' race where he finished an excellent second. The under 13 girls' race saw Eden Williams finish in eighth place while Nia Clatworthy was 14th in the under 15 girls' event.

Six Cardiff girls were on the start line of the under 17 girls' race and pride of place went to Abi Fisher (9th), followed by Naomi Reid (13th), Kiara Frizelle (16th), Carys Bill (25th), Megan Bowen (32nd) and Gracie Wheeler (35th).

And, finally, in a high quality international cross country challenge in Burgos, Spain, yesterday, Charlotte Arter, representing England, was 11th, Ieuan Thomas, representing Wales, was 33rd and Ciaran Lewis was 45th in the junior men's race. Liz Davies was one of the team managers.
