  • Mixed gender teams.
  • A compact programme of interchangeable disciplines .
  • Head-to-head competition in the field events with every attempt counting towards the team match score.
  • Team match results remain open and unpredictable until the final competition discipline

Welsh Athletics are excited to announce a strong and competitive team heading up to Glasgow to compete in the DNA event. The selected athletes will be competing against teams from England, Scotland, Ireland, Spain and Turkey as they attempt to become crowned champions!
