It is with great delight that we are able to wish Jake Heyward a huge congratulations on being selected to represent Team GB at this year's Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Jake made the big decision of making a big move to the US where he is currently based to concentrate fully on his athletics career which has paid off just as he'd hoped for. The 2017 European Junior 1500m Champion, 2018 England Athletics U20 1500m Champion, and the Welsh Junior 1500m Record holder was able to gain the Welsh Senior record over 1500m this year by running 3:33.99 to secure his qualifying time for the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Da iawn Jake!
