At Yate on Saturday last, 18th April, Cardiff's UKYDL team for the under 20 and under 17 age groups got the season off to a good start, taking third place in the Midlands Premier Division. As the first two teams were composite (made up of more than one club), Cardiff's performance was the best for a single club.
Within the team's performance, Jac Palmer stood out. In his first competition of the year, he broke his own Welsh and club hammer records with a fine throw of 70.88m which is only 00.62m short of the UK qualifying standard for this year's European Junior Championships. It also takes him to second place on the UK under 20 rankings.
