Not only did James get picked for the Welsh Youth Team, he came away with a fantastic Silver Medal !

The report below from our very busy friend from Carmarthen...Nathan Jones.

James competed in the boys discus on Thursday evening (July 20th) After opening round distances of 59.11m and 60.04m, he improved again and threw out beyond 60m to 60.11m and this was good enough to earn him a silver medal in second position. James during the competition also had to contend with an hours delay due to the stormy weather. He was also joined on the podium that evening by Sarah Omoregie (Cardiff) who claimed a silver medal in the U18 shot with a new British record; best of 16.74m. Sarah started her athletics career with Pembrokeshire Harriers before moving to Cardiff.

James is with Pembrokeshire Harriers and regularly trains at the Carmarthen track, a pleasure to see attend and compete at the Carmarthen open throws on the last Thursday of each month, is a very reliable athlete at Dyfed schools and West Wales competitions and trains hard.
