Cardiff second in final

Monday 1 August 2016

Cardiff athletes travelled to Swansea yesterday for the final of the Welsh Athletics League and were rewarded with second place behind local rivals Swansea Harriers, scoring 900 points to Swansea's 1189 with Brecon AC third.

Elsewhere over the weekend, David Omeregie won the UK Inter-Counties 110m hurdles title in 13.37, his second best ever time but which, unfortunately, was wind assisted. David had won his heat in a legal 13.53. James Griffiths achieved a big personal best in the 100m with a legal heat time of 10.44; his previous legal best was 10.64.

Cardiff's event winners at the Welsh League final were:

Men: Joshua Brown (100m heat 1); Kris Jones (200m heat 1); Marklan Jackson (200m heat 2); Matthew Collins (200m heat 3); 4x100m; 4x400m.

Women: Rebecca Kennett (200m heat 1); Rachel Donnison (400m); Lucy Marland (3000m); Jessica Wadey (1500m steeplechase); Lois Hillman (pole vault); Catrin Lord (long jump); Eleni Zembashi (discus); Ffion Palmer (hammer); Ellie Stonehewer (triple jump); 4x400m.
