Rhys through to final

Friday 22 June 2012

Cardiff's European and Commonwealth medallist Rhys Williams safely qualified today for the final of the 400m hurdles at this weekend's UKA Olympic trials in Birmingham. Rhys qualified by winning heat 2 in 50.54, the second fastest time, to secure his place, and potentially a good lane, in what will be one of most important races of his career. The final is at 17.13 tomorrow, Saturday - don't miss it. Also comfortably through from heat 8 of the 100m, in 10.48, is popular club stalwart Christian Malcolm. Christian will line up tomorrow in semi final two, with the final later in the day.

Also contesting the 100m were Tom Knight (5th in heat one in 10.94) and Mica Moore (6th in heat three in a season's best of 12.15).

Rhiannon Linington Payne took on some of Britain's best in the 400m, finishing 6th in heat 6 (won by Shana Cox) in 55.86. 

Tom Marshall and James Thie contested the 1500m heats but found them too tough to progress to the final.

Tomorrow's events include the 800m where Cardiff's Gareth Warburton will want to build on his recent form which gives him a real chance of making the olympic team.

Let's hope the weather is warmer.
