The country’s best athletes are ready to perform in Sheffield for the British Athletics Indoor Team Trials at the EIS on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 February.
The event will feature many of the stars of the sport as they battle it out for a place on the British Athletics Team at the European Indoor Championships in Belgrade at the start of March, as well as the honour of being crowned British champion.
Cardiff AAC athelete David Omoregie (coach: Benke Blomkvist) will be looking to make his mark at the Championships. Omoregie has been in great form during the indoor season, setting a personal best of 6.71.
Omoregie said: “I really can’t wait, I’m feeling really good. I’ve done this event for the last three years and always medalled so I’ll try and do the same tomorrow; enjoy the experience and execute a good race. It’s a stepping stone towards the European Indoors.”
He will be up agaisnt training partner Andrew Pozzi (Blomkvist), the fastest 60m hurdler in the world in 2017 with a time of 7.44.
A limited number of tickets are available at www.britishathletics.org.uk. The British Athletics Indoor Team Trials will be streamed live on the BBC Sport website.
We wish Omoregie and all the Welsh Athletes competing this weekend the very best of luck - pob lwc!
