Cardiff athletes win support

Thursday 24 November 2016

Welsh Athletics has announced its list of athletes to be supported and the list includes ten from Cardiff AAC.

Three athletes have been placed in the Commonwealth Games Podium Support category which means that they are regarded as having the potential to finish in the top six at the next Games. The athletes are Bethan Davies (20k walk), Brett Morse (discus) and Rhys Williams (400m hurdles).

The Commonwealth Games Support category includes Kristian Jones (200m), Tom Marshall (1500m), Jac Palmer (hammer) and Owen Smith (400m).

For younger athletes, the Futures Cymru category includes Jay Morse (discus), Sarah Omoregie (shot put) and Naomi Reid (800m).

All these athletes will receive specialised help with their development including medical assistance, etc.

Following his oustanding performances this year, Jake Heyward has been included in UK Athletics' Futures programme.

Aled Davies and Rhys Williams have been included in the multi-sport athletes' commission that will advise the Commonwelth Games management on matters relating to the athletes.

Congratulations to all.
