Osian Jones breaks 33 year old Welsh Record

Osian Jones was in action last night at the Belfast International meeting, where the Liverpool Harrier achieved something spectacular throwing 69.20 metres in the men's Hammer. This was a huge personal best and also a Commonwealth B standard for next year's Games on the Gold Coast. What is even more impressive about this performance is that it broke a Welsh national record which had stood for 33 years. The former record holder, Shaun Pickering, took to Twitter after hearing the news, saying: "Congratulations Osian. A long time in coming but I am happy to hand over the title after 33 years!" It's been an impressive year for the Cardiff-based athlete, after winning the Welsh Title last month and setting a new Welsh record last evening.
