Results Round Up From Gold Coast Australia, Swansea, Manchester, Lampeter & More

The main highlight without doubt has been Senior Women club captain Caryl Granville making her Commonwealth Games debut in the 400m Hurdles on Tuesday 10th April running a really good time of (59.28) placing 8th in her heat. We look forward to seeing her in action again in the 100m Hurdles later this week, along with our other mega stars Jonathan Hopkins, Joshua Griffiths, Elinor Kirk and Caryl Jones who we can’t wait to see how they get on!
 
Sunday 8th April was the Swansea Harriers open meeting, firstly we’d like to thank the organisers and all the volunteers from all the clubs, who made the successful day possible. There is an awful lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to host such a large event, not least rounding up all the qualified officials and other volunteers, thank you to everyone who helped out!
