Three athletes chasing Commonwealth Games standard

Three Welsh athletes line up at the world class Payton Jordan meeting in the early hours of Saturday morning, Dewi Griffiths (Swansea Harriers) is starting in the B race which highlights the calibre of both men’s fields that have been assembled, he is looking to run a personal best en route while securing a Commonwealth Games qualification "A" standard over 10km.

Melissa Courtney (Shaftesbury Barnet) and Eli Kirk (Swansea) are both running in the A race over 5km which again will present a huge opportunity for both girls to challenge the qualification "A" standard of 15:35:00, this would be a personal best performance for both athletes; Eli’s PB currently sits at 15:37.65 with Melissa’s PB sitting at 16:13.45.

10 welsh athletes currently hold a Commonwealth Games standard, so let’s hope we can make it to 13.

We wish all athletes the best of luck.

Pob lwc!
