David Guest in GB Team

Thursday 28 January 2010

David Guest, who competes for Cardiff's British League team as a higher competition athlete (his first claim club is Bridgend AC) has been included in Great Britain's Under 20 team to take part in a Combined Events International in Bombas, France on 6-7 March. Still only 18, David has started his 2010 campaign strongly, setting a new personal best time of 22.36 for 200m at last weekend's Welsh indoor championships.

He joins Ashley Bryant and Sebastian Rodger in a three man  British team.

David made a major breakthrough last year. He competed as one of the youngest competitors in the European Junior championships, finishing the year ranked 7th in Europe. He was ranked second junior decathlete in Britain and 4th overall.

With another year as a junior he will be aiming for the World Junior Championships scheduled for Moncton, Canada, in July not to mention the Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

Hopefully, David will be able to include some of our British League matches in his programme and we wish him every success.
