The Welsh Athletics Junior Open staged last weekend saw Peter Lane of Cardiff AAC receive his Welsh Athletics Award of Honour.
Peter has been involved in the sport for over 35 years and has an impressive record of coaching athletes across all levels of the sport. He has served his club as Chairman, Team manager, Announcer as well as a number of other duties over an extended period. Previously serving as Chair of the South Wales Regional Athletics Council has also been a Team Manager and Team Coach for many Welsh international teams. Peter continues to be a key figure and actively involved in the sport.
The Welsh Athletics Award of Honour is usually presented to mark a special performance achievement or for service (25 years minimum) at regional, district schools, or at national level for Welsh Schools or Welsh Athletics Ltd. As was the case this year, for the award to be made to an athlete, the individual will normally have either competed for Wales or Great Britain & Northern Ireland in a minimum of six major Games or Championships and gained a medal on at least two occasions.
Others recognised at the 2017 Welsh Athletics AGM to receive the Award of Honour include; Peter Walton (Neath Harriers), Brian Davies (Cardiff & Vale Schools Athletics Association) and top timekeeper, David Llewellyn.
