Welcome to Wales' Premier Athletic Club
together we are one

Cardiff 1-2

Friday 16 June 2017

Hot on the heels of their exploits at the Welsh championships last Saturday, Tom Marshall (Welsh silver at 800m) and Rowan Axe (gold at 1500m) travelled to Watford on Wednesday evening, looking for fast times over 1500m. And, wow, did they get them!

Tom won the 1500m A race in a career best time of 3:37.62 with Rowan a close second in a big personal best of 3:38.12. These times take them respectively to third and fifth on the all-time best Welsh lists and to eighth and ninth on the current UK rankings. They are also both within the A standard qualification to be considered for the Welsh team at the Commonwealth Games. 

Tom's time also just misses his coach James Thie's club record of 3:37.06 set in 2004.

Congratulations also to Rhianwedd Price (1500m) and David Omoregie (110m hurdles) on their selections to represent Great Britain at the European Team Championships Super League taking place in Lille from 23-25 June. And triple jumper Saragh Buggy has been selected to represent Ireland in the First League of the Team Championships, being held in Finland.
