European U18 Athletics Championships, Jerusalem

Ophelia Pye (Malborough) came into the championships with a personal best of 59.74s over the 400m hurdles and left as European U18 Champion and with a new personal best of 58.09s. Running significantly faster through the heats (58.91s), semis (58.53s) and in the final, Ophelia timed these championships exceptionally. Her time was also fast enough to equal the Welsh U20 400m hurdle record, which is currently held by Lauren Williams (Swansea).

In the boys Medley relay, Callum Webb (Cardiff Archers) and Jac Patterson (Cardiff Archers) helped secured the GBR team a place in the final, where they went on to win a bronze medal.
