Bethan ranked No. 1

Friday 29 December 2017

Every year Athletics Weekly publishes the UK senior Merit Rankings, compiled by respected statistician Peter Matthews.

This year, Cardiff AAC has a record thirteen members in the top twelve, with international race walker Bethan Davies taking pride of place as top in her events (10k/20k walks). David Omoregie is ranked No. 2 at 110m hurdles while Ieuan Thomas is No. 3 in the 3,000m steeplechase and Brett Morse is No. 3 in the discus.

Bethan Davies: 10k/20k walk: 1st
