Gwent League — Brecon

16 Feb

The Club turn out may have been small, but the athletes who competed in Brecon were rewarded with some really good performances.

Top Honours went to young Zak Tobias in the Under 15 boys’ race.

Last months Evening Post ‘young athlete of the month’ made his intensions clear from the start and shot into an early lead. Holding off athletes of the calibre of club mate Luke Jacobs and NSAA Cameron Coetzee, Zak recorded his first win in the league.

Miranda Sadler continued her impressive season with a fine second place in the Under 15 Girls race. Running a well paced race Miranda worked her way through the field finishing around 20 seconds clear second.

There were also three athletes who finished in ‘Bronze’ positions.

Olivia Sadler also recorded her best result in the competition but found Team Baths Imogen Wolsey the Midland Championship Silver medallist just a little too strong on the day.

Luke Jacobs has timed his return to form just right with major championship races approaching. Luke ran a powerful race in the Under 15 boys.

Tim Wallis also recorded a third place in the day’s last event.
