The Christmas Classic, the first indoor competition of this winter took place on Sunday 16 December at NIAC, Cardiff. Several of our club athletes took part, with our U17s competing with the U20s. U17 Will Morris had a very good first time run over 600m and finished with a very respectable 2nd fastest time for an U17 on the day. Another U17 Matt Bark Churchill had an excellent day getting not one but 2 new Personal Best performances in his 60m and Long Jump. Both Matt and Will sportingly then took part in the annual 60m Santa Dash dressed in full Santa outfits. Matt scorched to victory in a time which was just 3/100 off the World Record for this event. The bonus does mean however that he has been awarded the Junior World Record and will definitely be aiming to smash the Senior World Record next year!
Please note that Monday night Circuits has now finished and will restart in 2019 on Monday 14 January. The last Junior session of this year will be Thursday 13 December and will restart in 2019 on Thursday 17 January.
