World record and champions

Monday 12 January 2015

Cardiff athletes marked up some excellent new year performances at yesterday's indoor Grand Prix and Welsh 3000m championships, held in the NIAC, Cardiff.

The outstanding performance of the day was paralympian Aled Sion Davies' world indoor record of 15.53m in the category F42 shot put.

David Omoregie went to the top of the 2015 UK indoor rankings for the 60m hurdles with 7.87seconds and Jessica Wadey (U15 girls) and Jack Gooch (U20 men) became Welsh indoor champions over 3000m.

Aled already holds the outdoor record of 15.13m and was delighted with his early season progress under new coach Ryan Spencer Jones.

Other 3000m championship results saw silver medals for Rhys Jones (U17 men), Sofia Vella (U15 girls) and Charlotte Gaughan (senior women) and bronze for Rhys Morgan (U15 boys) and Ciaran Lewis (U20 men). Owen Haswell took the silver medal in the senior men's 3000m.

In the open Cardiff Met Grand Prix, Lauren Evans won with 1.60m and is 5th in the UK rankings for under under 17; Becca Chapman won the long jump with 6.06m as well as heat 2 of the final of the 60m. Iori Moore had matched Becca's performance, winning heat 2 of the men's final.

In the men's 1500, heat 1, Tom Marley and Matthew Edwards were second and third respectively while Lucy Griffiths won the senior women's shot put.

The remainder of the Welsh Indoor championships will be held on 24th and 25th January.
