Athletics last night

Thursday 21 July 2016

Whilst the Welsh Athletics International was going on at the Cardiff International Sports Campus, the third round of this year's SSAFA 5k road races was taking place and Cardiff athletes were prominent in both events.

In the SSAFA race, Cardiff filled second, third, fourth, seventh and eighth places through Carwyn Jones, Mike Kallenberg, Ciaran Lewis, James Hunt and Stephen Morris, whilst at Leckwith James Vincent set a personal best in the One Mile and Carys Bill won the Welsh under 17 women's 3000m championship gold medal.

Other winners at Leckwith were Paul Bennett (400m hurdles), Brett Morse (discus) and Aled Davies (shot put).

The under 15 boys' 4x100m A relay team (Ben Hillman, Joseph Franklin, Harvey Reynolds and Carter Staples) just lost out to Swansea in a very tight finish and the B team (Evan Griffiths, Matthew Register, Jack Jones and Louis Thorne) took third place to ensure silver and bronze. The under 15 girls' team (Lily Gaskin, Nia Grundy, Emanualla Kone and Issie Tustin) was also second.
