The following is an excellent report from Carmarthen Harriers' Nathan Jones.....

The August Bank Holiday Weekend (26-27th) again saw the Welsh Inter-Regionals Athletics Championships take place for the 19th time for under 15, under 17 and under 20/senior age groups, this year returning to Brecon due to logistical reasons. It concluded another action-packed summer of track and field athletics season.

Fe wnaeth benwythnos Gwyl Y Banc unwaith eto weld Pencampwriaeth Athletau Rhanbarthol Cymru yn dychwelyd i Aberhonddu dros y penwythnos ar gyfer plant dan 15, dan 17 ac o dan 20 oed ac uwch. Roedd wedi cloi tymor haf trac a maes athletau prysur arall.

Following a cold start to the morning, the sun finally came out early on and turned out to be a stunning day for an athletics competition on a rather warm Saturday afternoon watched on by a decent crowd.

Despite a few last minute drop outs in the days leading up to the weekend, this did not affect too much as a strong determined squad of 120 West Wales travelled up to Mid Wales to compete in the red and black vest. West Wales had won the overall team trophy every year since 1999 except in 2016 (South) and 2011 when the North Region won when it was held in Deeside. The success continued in 2017.

West Wales: athletes from Pembrokeshire Harriers, Carmarthen Harriers, Llanelli AC, Swansea Harriers, Neath Harriers and Run4All Neath.

Throughout the six hour programme it was a very close battle between the West and South at the start, however a string of fine performances saw the West pull away early on and this was kept up for the remainder of the afternoon, winning with a big margin of over 200 points. There was several great performances which is too many to mention, finished off by top three results in the sprint relays.

1 West Wales 1047.5; 2 South Wales 837.5; 3 North Wales 815.5; 4 East Wales 720

1 Gorllewin Cymru 1047.5; 2 De Cymru 837.5; 3 Gogledd Cymru 815.5; 4 Dwyrain Cymru 720The Overall winning team trophy was presented to the two West Wales region captains Aled Price (Carmarthen Harriers) and Caryl Granville (Swansea Harriers) at the end of competition, which took place at 7pm as darkness started to arrive. Due to the late finish and delay in presentations, only some of the team were left at the end for the team photograph. In addition, The West region also collected the overall male and female trophies along with the Under 15s and Under 17s individual age groups. These were collected by Harry Davies (Neath Harriers), Lili Church (Carmarthen Harriers), Owain Lloyd-Hughes (Neath Harriers) & Danielle Jones (Carmarthen Harriers)

Altogether in 2017, the region broke the 100 barrier and won a total of 105 medals during the championships (39 gold, 29 silver and 37 bronze!)

Medals were awarded to the top three finishers in each age group and event with the presentation area being very busy all day, with supporters eager to get a photograph of their medalist on the podium.

At Penlan Arena, Brecon there was an excellent team spirit in the West Wales team. The six team managers (and our thanks to them for all their hard work, along with Andrew Jenkins - Swansea) Hedydd Davies, Peter Walton, Dai Dix, Jo Salmon, Jonathan Phillips and Dai Jones, thanked all the West Wales athletes on their superb performances, commitment and their willingness to represent West Wales this year.

"West is Best!!" Well done/Da iawn to all athletes, coaches, officials and managers on another successful day for the region. Hard work at training now over the winter and we'll see you again next year in summer 2018 during the YDL/LA/Inter Regionals!

It was another long day for many of our Welsh Athletics officials/staff and volunteers with a few having been all day in Brecon for nearly 12 hours, many thanks to them too for their continued support to the events! West Wales were not only contributing on the competition stage but also judging the events on the track and field disciplines to ensure that everyone had run smoothly and on time.
