Last Saturday 9th (Jan), saw two Harriers up in Edinburgh and five in Cardiff.

Lucy Davies and Abbie Williams were running in the Welsh U17 Women Team in the Celtic Nations X/C International held in Edinburgh. Racing against competitors from Ireland, Ulster, Scotland, Europe and USA, both did extremely well in the muddy conditions. Another well deserved Welsh vest for both of these talented young girls....and not the last Im sure.    Click here for Results

Meanwhile, a bit closer to home, Shaun and Jamie Zygadlo, Wiliam lloyd, Gracie Lawrence and Ella Wintle were competing in the Welsh Junior Open. This was combined with the S.Wales, SE. Wales and SW England Indoor Champs and consequently, there were literally hundreds of athletes an supporters crammed into the National Indoor Arena Cardiff ( NIAC ).

Shaun blasted the U17M 60m Hurdles to win in style with a new pb. The time of 8.41s puts him in the top 10 UK rankings for his age group.

Wiliam set a new pb in the U15B 60m Hurdles coming 4th/15 overall He then ran a new pb in the 800m coming 7th/24 overall. Finally, he carried his tired body over to the Long Jump to finish off the day 14th/25 overall.

Gracie Lawrence raced off blocks for the first time and she set a new pb in the U15G 60m Hurdles coming 5th/30 overall. She then set a new pb in the 60m finishing 36th/51 overall, to round off a good day for her.

Jamie Zygadlo didn't quite manage a pb on the 60m Hurdles but he was the best technically out of all the U13 Boys and finished 3/12 overall. He also competed in the Long Jump and finished 17th/35 overall.

Ella Wintle had a great run in only her second U13G 60m Hurdles race. She knocked off over a second from her pb and came 12th/24 overall. She also had a great run in the 800m, finishing 9th/24 and then finished off the day setting a new pb in the 60m and was 18th/51 overall.
