Well done Welsh Athletics

Thursday 4 June 2015

Welsh Athletics' Sprints Open meeting, held at Cardiff International Sports Stadium last night was a great success and must surely be repeated on a regular basis.

The event was blessed with a beautiful summer's evening with a light following wind.

Such was the support from athletes that no fewer than 17 heats of the 100m were needed and 13 for the 200m. A second round of 100m races needed a further ten heats.

The official results can be viewed here and reveal the multiplicity of personal best times that were recorded. Those recorded by Cardiff athletes are as follows.

100m: Keith Mbofana (SM); Iori Moore (U20); Richard Lee (U17); Rebecca Kennett (U17); Catrin Lord (U17); Thomas Britt (U15); Eliza Hill (U15); Lily Gaskin (U15); Maurice Klommite (U15); Carter Staples (U13); Saffron Maurice (U13); Scarlett Russell.

200m: Rhiannan Linington-Payne (SW); Claire Taylor (U20); Richard Lee (U17); Tommy Friel (U17); Rebecca Kennett (U17); Lauren Evans (U17); Thomas Britt (U15); Lily Gaskin (U15); Sofia Vella (U15); Anais Rowland (U15); Maysie Briggs (U15); Ben Vincent (U13); Saffie Maurice (U13).

The next Open meetings will be for Jumps in Swansea on 10th June and for endurance events on 22 July in Newport.
