Honours for Sarah and Tom

Monday 18 July 2016

With numerous Cardiff AAC athletes in the Welsh schools team that competed in the annual SIAB schools international between Wales, Scotland, England and Ireland on Saturday last, it was Sarah Omorehgie and Tom Hanson who came away with the honours.

Sarah was one of only two Welsh event winners, taking the girls shot put, while Tom's second place in the shot put with a personal best 16.20m earned for him the Most Meritorious Performance by a Welsh boy.

Other notable performances by Cardiff athletes included Jay Morse (silver in the discus), James Vincent (bronze in the 1500m), Ffion Palmer (bronze in the hammer) and Naomi Reid (fourth in the 800m). Fifth places came from Kieran Grimwade (hammer), Kiara Frizelle (1500m), Lauren Evans (80m hurdles, where she set a new personal best and club record of 11.77) and Megan Hodgson (pole vault).
