Indoor pbs for David Monday 16 January 2017

David Omoregie 2014

David Omoregie's two personal bests were amongst the highlights at yesterday's Cardiff Met indoor GP. After beating GB international Dwain Chambers in his heat of the open 60m in a personal best time of 6.71secs., David was just beaten by Dwain in the final. In the 60m hurdles, he was an easy winner, also in a personal best time of 7.66s.

Other good performances came from Curtis Mathews (a near pb long jump win with 6.90m), Alex Coomber (showing a welcome return to good form with a 800m win in 1:51.87), Lauren Evans (wins in the high jump and long jump) and Megan Hodgson (close to her pb in the pole vault).

Charlotte Arter 2016

Fresh from her record breaking victory in the Nos Galan on new year's eve, Charlotte Arter was the best British athlete in the international women's race in the Great Edinburgh Cross Country today.

After a steady start, Charlotte worked her way through the field to finish an excellent seventh in a high class international race, the first of the British team to finish and ahead of seasoned GB internationals including Steph Twell. The GB team finished in third place, on equal points with the USA, behind the winning Europe team.

Warning!! Wednesday 14 December 2016

Most athletes will be aware that, in 2016, UK Athletics introduced a regulation that, throughout the UK, all athletes have to be registered with their regional associations in order to compete.

In 2017, the rule will be enforced strictly so it is essential that if you want to compete you MUST register.
