National medals won

Monday 27 February 2017

Nineteen Cardiff AAC athletes travelled to Sheffield over the weekend for the England Athletics Under 15/17/20 championships and to experience important competition against the best in Britain.

Pride of place goes to Kiara Frizelle who took the gold medal in the under 17 women's 1500m by a big margin and in a personal best time of 4:35.00. Perhaps the busiest athlete was Ben Hillman who contested the under 15 boys' 300m, taking the silver medal, as well as the long jump (for 5th) and the 60m hurdles (6th). Amelia Reynolds was the silver medallist in the under 20 women's 200m and Megan Hodgson took the bronze in the under 17 women's pole vault.

Athletes reaching their respective finals were Iwan Robinson-Booth (6th in the under 17 boys' 60m), Seth Kelly (5th in the under 17 men's 400m), James Vincent (8th in the under 20 men's 1500m), Harri Wheeler-Sexton (7th in the Under 17 men's 60m hurdles and 6th in the long jump), Naomi Reid (8th in the under 20 women's 800m), Lauren Evans (7th in the under 20 women's long jump and 9th in the high jump) and Iwan Jones (8th in the under 15 boys' 60m hurdles).

Others in Sheffield were Matthew Register, Isabel Breeden, Emmanuella Kone, Sadie Graham-Mulvaney, Issie Tustin, Catrin Lord and Harvey Reynolds.

Numerous personal best performances were achieved.

It is very important for Welsh athletes to experience this level of competition as this is the way progress can be measured and new targets set.

Well done to all.
