New club record for Rhys

Sunday 19 May 2013

Cardiff's Rhys Williams looks to be heading for his best ever season as he set a new personal best time of 48.90 for the 400m hurdles at the Loughbrough International today. Once again, fellow Olympian Jack Green failed to finish.

In winning his speciality event, Rhys consolidated his position at the top of the UK and European rankings and improved his previous best of 48.96 (set in the 2010 European Championships) by 0.06 second.

Cardiff's Tom Marshall set a new personal best in winning the 1500m in 3:44.84. Gareth Warburton clocked 3:46.53 in the same race.

Other Loughborough performances by Cardiff athletes were:

Paul Bennett (53.26 400mH);  Dewi Hammond (10.91 100m);  Elliot Slade (1:50.47 800m);  Matthew Field (16.05m shot put);  Francis Baker (14.83 110mH & 6.81 long jump);  Larmarl Freckleton (21.72 200m);  Emily Brown (10:45.16 3000m steeplechase);  Ffion Price (4:26.15 a500m); Rhiannon Linnington-Payne (56.42 400m);  Ffion Bodilly (1.64m high jump);  Mica Moore (24.54 200m & 12.07 100m);  Ryan Cooper (57.35 400mH).

Congratulations also to David Omoregie who produced a personal best of 13.68 in an U20 men’s 110m hurdles guest race to achieve the European Junior qualification time at the age of just 17.
