Results Round Up From (London, Llanelli & Cardiff)

Saturday 20th April saw round 1 of 4 in the Welsh U17, U20 & Senior League at Cardiff. The main highlight on the day was a new club record in the U17W 200m where Hannah Brier set a time of (24.81) breaking the league record too in the process, well done Hannah, her time of (11.72) in the 100m was aided by a strong tail wind so unfortunately doesn't count as a club record too. Very many thanks to all those who made the effort to travel and support the club. Click here for the full results.
