More medals on day 2

Monday 27 January 2014

After the clean sweep of medals by the under 17 men in the 800m on Saturday, Cardiff's under 20 men capped this yesterday in the 1500m by taking the first five places in the six man final. Matthew Edwards was first to finish, followed by Sam Longville, Jacob Preece, Ieuan Handley and Ciaran Lewis.

Several Cardiff athletes completed individual doubles with Issie Tustin adding the  under 13 girls' 200m title to her 60m gold, Sofia Vella the under 13 girls 1500m to her 800m, Harry Hillman winning the under 17 men's pole vault and long jump, Naomi Reid the under 15 girls' 800m and 1500m, James Vincent the under 15 boys' 800m and 1500m, Ryan James the under 17 men's 200m and 400m and Gwenno Waddington the under 17 women's 800m and 1500m.

Other Cardiff individual gold medallists yesterday were: Daniel John (under 13 boys' 200m), Jake Heyward (under 17 men's 1500m), Anax da Silva (senior men's 200m), Adam Williams (senior men's triple jump), Kate Seary (under 20 women's 1500m).

Individual performances that caught the eye yesterday included Jake Heyward's comfortable win in the 1500m, Anax da Silva's determined run in the 200m and the 12 year old sprinters Daniel John and Issie Tustin. Issie won both the 60m and 200m by good margins and is set to emulate her aunt who, as Lisa Denty, still holds a share in Cardiff's 4 x400m club record.
