It was once again another busy weekend of athletics as many of our athletes are looking at bringing the 2021 Track and Field season to a close.

We had another Commonwealth Games Nomination Standard throw of 17.17m by Adele Nicoll who is really starting to show off her dominance in the event.

Our multi-eventers battled it out at the European combined events challenge in Manchester where Lauren Evans took 3rd place overall, 5254pts lifetime best score! Read the full report here: European Combined Events Challenge success

In the AAA's (see the full reports here Male Report: AAA U15/U17 Combined-Event Championships & Female Report: AAA U15/U17 Combined-Event Championships) Nia Powell finished 3rd overall place in U15 girls Hexathlon.

There was even more success at the Cardiff 5K (read the full report here) where the parkrun UK Record holder Charlotte Arter crushed the Welsh 5K record on the weekend as she clocked 15.29 as she crossed the line first in the women's race held in front of large crowds on the streets of Whitchurch.
