North Wales Indoor Championships Results
This past weekend 20th February saw 10 of our athletes head to North Wales Indoor Athletics Centre to take part in the North Wales Regional Championship. We had athletes from the under 11 age group up to the under 20's. In total the athletes came away between them with 17 medals and 17 personal bests too and one new club record too.
We had Zac and Tyler taking part in the multi event competiton for the under 11's which consisted of Long Jump, Shot Put and a 60m sprint. Both athletes did fantastic and set new personal bests and Tyler came 3rd overall just pipping Zac due to a very impressive 60m sprint which he won comfortably.
In the under 13's we had Iwan and Cari representing the club. Cari continued her fine form from the National Indoor Championships and was just pushed into 2nd place whilst setting a new personal best of 8.74. Each race Cari has taken part in this year, she's managed to get a new personal best and been involved in some tight races which photofinish is the only way to seperate the athletes. Iwan took part in Long Jump, Shot Put and 60m sprint and came away with a Gold and PB for shot put and Silver and a PB for long jump. In the 60m, Iwan just missed out on qualifying for the final in a very competitive and high quality field.
In the under 15's we had Lydia (60m Hurdles, 60m and Long Jump) and Eva (High Jump and 60m). Eva came away with a Silver in the high jump and a Bronze in the 60m and setting a new PB in the 60m heats. Lydia got a Bronze in the 60m hurdles setting a new PB at the same time and just missed out on the 60m final in a very high quality race where everyone set a new PB.
In the under 17's we had Meg taking part in the 60m hurdles and 60m, unfortunately Meg didn't manage to get any medals but she did set new PB's in both events. We had Jonathan take part in 60m, triple jump and long jump. Jon came away from the event with 2 gold medals in the triple jump and long jump and a silver medal in the 60m and setting new PB's in the triple jump and 60m. Kane took part in the 60m and won the event by 4 tenths of a second in a time of 7.24s and breaking the club record in the process, continuing his impressive indoor season.
In the under 20's we had Ellie represent the club in 60m and long jump. Ellie won Gold in the long jump with a seasons best distance of 4.16m and came away with a bronze in the 60m with a new PB of 8.18s.
Well done to all athletes that took part and these results show that all the training and hardwork over the winter has paid off and will give all athletes the encouragement moving into the outdoor season and a big thank you to the parents who travel across the country to take the athletes to the various events.
