Classy Naomi and Jake

Wednesday 10 August 2016

Amongst several excellent performances by Cardiff athletes at last Saturday's Celtic Games in Swansea, two stood out. Running in their Welsh vests, Naomi Reid and Jake Heyward each won their under eighteen 800m races comfortably but it was the manner of their races that caught the eye. Jake is, of course, the European champion at 1500m but both he and Naomi have made big steps up this year in their racing abilities.

Jake set a new Celtic Games rcord of 1:50.61 (just outside his personal best) and Naomi was named the Welsh female athletes' performance of the day.

The Welsh male athletes'performance of the day award went to Jay Morse for his win in the under sixteen discus.

Other Cardiff AAC winners were Sarah Omoregie in the under eighteen shot put, with a Games record of 15.10m and Lauren Evans who won the under eighteen high jump with a season's outdoor best equalling 1.66m. Kiara Frizelle won the under sixteen girls' 800m.
