More honour for Jake

Thursday 8 December 2016

Cardiff's Jake Heyward has enjoyed the best season of his career so far and, for his achievements, he was named the Carwyn James Young Sportsman of the Year at Monday night’s Wales Sport Awards.

The pinnacle of his season was representing Great Britain & Northern Ireland at the European Youth (Under 18) Championships in Tiblisi, Georgia, where he won the 1500 metres gold medal. In addition he retained his Welsh Senior 800m championship title and won the UK Under 20 championship at 1500m.

Congratulations Jake - well deserved.

Jake is ranked sixth Under 20 (1500m) in the UK despite being only 17 and is also ranked tenth in the UK over 800m in the Under 20 category.
