Welsh Athletics Junior Open Meeting

Welsh Athletics held the 2 day of the Junior Indoor Championships, that included the Welsh Regions, and the South West of England Region. Cardiff athletes competing won in Track events 9 Gold, 8 Silver and 4 Bronze medals. In Field events they won 2 Gold, 2 Silver and 1 Bronze medals.

When one considers that our track was out of use from mid July to the first week in November, when the new track was available for training, except it has no line markings. At moment, a provisional date has been set for track line marking to take place at the end of March. Our Middle Distance runners won 21 medals, and Field eventers 5 medals. Field events have been more effected by the track closure. Only in the Long Jump and Pole Vault events, did Cardiff athletes compete and gain medals. Track events covered 60m, 60mH, 800m and 1500m. In the U17M 800m, Cardiff runners won all Podium medals.

A new womens Parkrun UK record time of 15.50 was achieved by Cardiff's Charlotte Arter in finishing 2nd overall, only beaten by 1 second to a SM, 903 finished the race. Went to watch race to support runner am coaching, and give a support shout to other Cardiff and runners seen passing me in race. Due to numbers in race it was difficult to spot Cardiff runners who wore all sorts of tops.

A leading group of men and Charlotte shot past me by the weir about 1km from start, they were really going fast, with Charlotte tucked in with them. Following my support at weir, once field thinned out, walked to point, just before 400m from finish. Got a good view of runners running past house up towards me. Charlotte breathing hard was running alongside 1 man, watched they passed 400m point, just before they got out of sight around a bend, could see Charlotte opening up a short lead.
