The WJC were held in Wrexham last Saturday and Sunday. The weather dry and breezy. Sunday sun, and some rain showers with a strong breeze against runners running into finish line. There was a huge amount of tree pollen being blown off the trees onto the track, making it look like snow it so thick on the grass. The journey from South Wales (by road), to Wrexham is not an easy drive, athletes who stayed over night before their events, had advantage over those who didn't, or could not.

Cardiff Athletics athletes won 40 medals in all age groups i.e. U13/U15/U17/U20 male and female. Analysing where medals were won showed, Endurance 16, Field 14 and Sprints 10.
