Results Round Up
This week we have results to round up for you from Budapest Hungary & Swansea.
Joseph was selected in the mixed 4 x 400m as he did last years World Championships at Eugene Oregan USA. Josephs championships got off to the perfect start on Saturday 19th August in the heats where the team ran a British record for the mixed relay by 0.76 finishing in 3.11.19!!!! The final was the same day where unfortunately Joseph was unable to run, due to an injury received during the heat, but still kept going! Congratulations to the quartet of Lewis Davey, Laviai Neilson, Rio Mitcham & Yemi Mary John who went on to win SILVER in a dramatic final in another national record of 3:11.06! The great news is that Joseph will get a SILVER too as part of the squad! He was the first Welsh male athlete to win a medal at the World Championships since our very own David Greene who won gold in 2011 over the 400m Hurdles!
Sunday 20th August saw the club hosted the third and final fixture of the Welsh U11 U13 & U15 Inter Club Challenge. First are foremost thank you to all the volunteers from all six clubs who made the day possible, it is a huge undertaking to find enough volunteers to make events like these happen.
