Jacob jumped 6.01m to earn himself a bronze medal in the u20's long jump.
Kane took part in the 200m and won his heat to qualify for the final. In the final which was held at the end of the day. Kane won gold in a very high quality and close race setting a personal best of 23.38s and in the process breaking the club record for 200m indoors which had stood since 1986.
Callum who ran for Prestatyn but who trains with the sprinters group also took part in the 200m and set a PB of 25.85s.
Sacha ran in the 200m and in a very high quality standard managed to get through to the semi finals but just missed out on a place in the finals.
On day 2 we had Jacob, Callum and Cari take part in the 60m event. Jacob ran 7.83 in a very high quality race with the overall champion coming from his race. Callum ran 7.93 in a very close race.
Cari, who is 11 and runs in the U13 age group took part in her very first national competition and did excellent in her event. In her heat she ran a very impressive 8.85s to romp home and qualify for the final. In the final Cari managed to improve on her time and ran 8.81s and just missed out on finishing on the podium by 100th of a second.
Well done to all that took part and thank you to the parents who took the athletes down to Cardiff.
