Amelia Reynolds was on fine form and captured two Welsh U17s titles. She stormed to victory in the 100m with a time of 12.33 seconds, and was nearly half a second ahead of her nearest opponent. She captured the 200m title in emphatic style too with a time of 24.96 seconds, 0.81 ahead of the second placed athlete.
Issy Morris meanwhile powered her way to victory in the 1500m in a Personal Best time of 4.37.82. This was the second fastest time in Wales this year and nearly 8 seconds faster than her record-breaking run at the Christ College Sports Day.
Today (18th June) Issy has been selected to take part in the Great British Relay, known as The People’s Relay, which gives runners the chance to join in a fantastic adventure and, alongside up to 2000+ runners, attempting to break a world record! From town to town, runner to runner, hand to hand, athletes will be carrying a specially designed GPS baton right around the coastline of mainland Britain covering over 7000 kilometres in 594 stages showing just what the running community can achieve. Issy will be running Section 329 – an 11km section from St Mellons near Cardiff along the coast road to central Newport. She will be part of a team of five athletes put together by her former coach and former Welsh International runner, Nikki Haines Jones. Nikki said: “They are a super group of runners who are a credit to the sport!”
