British best for Jake

Monday 5 February 2018

Cardiff's Jake Heyward, the current European under 20 1500m champion, broke Ian Stewart's under 20 3000m indoor record at NIAC yesterday.

Jake's time, rounded down to the official 8:00.93, shaved Ian's previous record of 8:01.4 set in 1968.

Ian Stewart went on to become one of Britain's most successful middle distance runners and, with the world junior championships taking place in Finland in July, Jake could not have got 2018 off to a better start.

In the 1000m, Tom Marshall set a Welsh record of 2:21.25, the fastest indoors in the UK this year and also good preparation for the Commonwealth Games.

The women's Welsh championship 3000m was won by Kiara Frizelle with Emily Brown second.
