Colwyn Bay Athletes Shine for North Wales in the YDL
This past weekend 29th of May, Colwyn Bay Athletic Club had 8 athletes representing North Wales in the second round of the Upper Youth Development League.
A big well done and a big thank you to James, Jacob, Seren, Ella, Kane, Rocco, Huw and Callum who joined the North Wales team competing in Manchester. Superb performances all round , thank you for your hard work and commitment taking time away from exams, work and (in Huw’s case) a slight little detour on the way to his Torquay holiday!
Congratulations Callum, Kane, Rocco, Huw, James, Jacob and Seren on your well deserved PB’s. One of the many highlights of the day has to be the Under 17’s 4 x 100m relays where Callum, Kane, Rocco and Huw claimed a brilliant win and smashed over a second off the club record with a time of 46.98.
