Cardiff's Adam Bitchell took the silver medal in the under 23 men's 5000m at the England championships held today in Bedford.
Several Cardiff athletes made the trip to Bedford for what are, in effect, the championships of the UK.
Charlotte Arter took 4th place in the final of the under 23 women's 1500m (4:27.00) whilst, in the final of the under 20 men's 100m, Dewi Hammond set a new pb of 10.49 in 5th place and Sam Gordon also ran a pb (10.65) in 7th. The wind speed was, however, just over the limit. Mica Moore equalled her pb of 11.80 in placing 8th in the final of the under 23 women's 100m. Again the wind speed was over the limit.
Elsewhere, in the under 20 age group, Mike Ward qualified for tomorrow's final of the men's 1500m (3:54.40), Elliott Slade did likewise in the men's 800m (1:54.31) as did Ryan Lee in the men's 400m (48.37). Paul Bennett is through to the final of the under 23 men's 400m hurdles (54.03).
