A big congratulations to Sally Peake who, representing Cardiff and Great Britain at the World Student Games in Shenzhen, China, pole vaulted to a personal best of 4m 35cm taking 4th place in the final on the 19th August.
Sally has competed on the international stage before, including a performance at the most recent Commonwealth games in Delhi 2010. Her vault in China this summer was not quite enough for a medal position but has boosted her British ranking to the 4th highest woman pole vaulter of all time!
Thought I'd get a little blog/update topic on the go for the events going on this year.
Well done to those who competed at the Gwent league last weekend in Bridgend; despite being a small turnout for the first race of the year it went well and the sun was out (for a change) making it quite a nice, if not a little hot, start to the season!
Aled and Moses came 15th and 20th in the under 23s category respectively whilst Kathleen finished 3rd in the East Wales competition for the age group and is still working back towards full fitness.
