Double win for Ieuan

Tuesday 6 March 2012

Cardiff's Ieuan Thomas (pictured) took both the senior and under 23 titles in the Welsh 5k road championship held in Bute Park, Cardiff, last Sunday 4th March. Lying second approaching the finish line, Ieuan produced a storming finish to overtake leader Marc Hobbs for a clear win. Cardiff's James Thie was third in the senior race and Adam Bitchell finished fourth but took the under 23 silver medal. Rebecca Evans won the under 17 women's gold medal. Paul Bevan took second place in the VM50 category and Catherine Hayes matched this in the VW40 age group.

James Thie's bronze medal place followed his gold medal performance in the 1500m at the British Universities indoor championships held in Sheffield on 25/26 February. At the same championships, Charlotte Arter won gold in the women's 1500m and Zara George won the women's 60m.
