Harriers success at Welsh Indoor Championships

Impressive facilities: Competitors enjoyed a world class venue

ON THE WEEKEND, over 500 of the best young athletes across the whole of Wales competed at the 40th Welsh Indoor Championships. 

The two-day event on Saturday and Sunday – January 16-17 took place once again at the National Indoor Athletics Centre in Cardiff where athletes enjoyed the warmth indoors instead of the winter conditions outside. Different to 2015, all 4 of the junior section events were held on the same day along with the U17/20 age groups instead of on separate days.

It proved to be another action-packed weekend and attracted a large vocal crowd on both days – so full at times it was standing room only.

Athletes from across west Wales entered and made the journey to the capital in their numbers, and between them brought back a haul of medals back down the M4 and beyond.

Throughout the weekend the west representatives kept making the podium for presentations. In total, West Wales won 24 gold, 24 silver and 14 bronze medals. From Carmarthen Harriers’ point of view, the club contributed by winning 5 medals thanks to Frank Morgan 1500m 5.07.93, Lili Church high jump 1.50m, Amelia Davey high jump 1.50m, Dwayne Griffiths 1500m 4.44.19 and Carys Jones in the Pole vault 3.44m. The other athletes who competed were Ben Thomas, Charles Griffiths, Ashraf Liles, Rhun Edwards, Zak Daly, Iestyn Williams and Callum Lovatt.
