5 athletes from the Harriers travelled to Swansea last Saturday (24th) to compete in the Welsh Schools / Welsh Athletics Combined Events Championships. Once again, only a few athletes compared to some clubs but those few did brilliantly coming away with 5 Silvers and many pb’s

Ella Wintle continues to excel as she had a great competition, winning the U13G Silver medal and just missing out on Gold by just 12 points. Pb’s in Shot (6.91m) ; Long Jump (4.07m) ; 800m (2m 27s)..a huge increase from previous one.

Younger sister, Lucy, competed very well in the same competition and finished 6th out of a total of 19 athletes, many a year older than her. She pb’d in Long Jump (3.39m) and a huge increase in 800m(2m 38s) just like big sister. These Wintle girls love the 800m !

Flavia Jenkins had a great competition in the U15G event. Her first Combined Events Champs and she won a Team Silver for Dyed Schools and finished a very creditable 5th out of 29 athletes in the individual ! She had 3 pb’s. 75mHurdles (12.75m) ; 800m (2m 48s)..massive increase ; High Jump (1.32m)

Dylan Phillips returned to track competition with a fantastic Silver in the U15B Team event and Silver in the individual competition. He achieved 4 pb’s …80m Hurdles (13.36s) ; Shot (11.91m) ; High Jump (1.62m) ; 800m (2m 21s).

Tyree Thompson’s first Combined Events competition saw him win Team Silver with Dylan in the U15 B event and finished 8th out 16 athletes in the individual. Pb’s in every event !  80m Hurdles (12.7s) ; Shot (6.99m) ; High Jump (1.44m ) ; Long Jump (4.82m ) and 800m (2m 33s).

So, in a comparison of athletes from club/medals won ratio, Pembrokeshire Harriers did remarkably well !
