Over a busy weekend WGwEL athletes were in action at the Watford BMC Grand Prix, representing GB in a Junior international in Mannheim, the Welsh Open Championships in Cardiff, and in the National Junior League at Eton. Many others had their county schools championships. Whilst the BMC meeting brought some very fine performances, notably a Club Junior record and European Under 20 5000m qualifying time for Ronnie Sparke, a severely depleted NJL team managed to just avoid last spot in the second fixture of the season at Eton. Another U/20 qualifying mark and Club junior record was achieved by Maria Seager at Cardiff with a 4.05 PV clearance. There was also news of a season's best over 400m for Graham Hedman.
WGwEL's Andy Frost (Hammer) and Joice Maduaka (4x100m) have been named in the GB&NI team for the new-look European Team Championships in Leira, Portugal, next weekend.
