Carys tops the bill

Saturday 16 January 2016

Cardiff's Carys Bill led from the gun to dominate the under 17 women's 3000m at day one of the Welsh junior age groups indoor championships at the NIAC in Cardiff.

But Carys's was just one of numerous excellent Cardiff performances, with medals and personal bests coming thick and fast.

Kristian Jones set a new pb of 6.91 seconds to win the under 20 men's 60m while James Vincent broke the 2 minute barrier again to win the under 17 men's 800m and set a new overall personal best of 1:58.16. Naomi Reid ran smoothly to take the under 17 women's 800m, Harry Hillman won the under 17 men's 60m hurdles, Ben Vincent won the under 13 boys' long jump and Jacob Reynolds the under 13 boys' 800m. Issie Tustin, wearing her go-faster red shorts, won the under 15 girls' 60m
