The 2021 Loughborough International Team

14/05/2021 00:00, In Blog / Track & Field /

It's been a whole 2 years since we were able to see our athletes wear the new Welsh vest and compete in the last Loughborough International, and it has been over 18 months since the Manchester International in August 2019, so you can understand our excitement in that we're pleased to announce the 55 squad member team of Welsh Athletes selected to represent Wales at this year's meet in Loughborough.

The competition is a great opportunity to inspire the talented generation of athletes we have in Wales and to gain further high-level experience. The athletes will be excited to show off how hard they have been working in order to qualify for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

"Da iawn i'r holl athletwyr sydd wedi cael eu dewis i gystadlu, a phob lwc!

"Cymru am byth"

National Coach Chris Jones had this to add:

"Welsh Athletics are delighted and celebrate athletes returning to a high level of competition representing wales at this year’s LIA after such unprecedented difficult times,  I would like to congratulate every athlete and coach on their success at been selected for this year’s event and wish everyone success at this year’s competition.

 

The challenges we have all faced only make the opportunity of coming together as a welsh team very special as we build towards next year’s commonwealth games and future age group championships.

 

We all owe a huge thank you to families and friends that have supported all of us through this very difficult journey.

 

Thank you for  contributing this is  a huge step forward for the sport of athletics in Wales"

Here is a flashback to the 2015 Loughborough International where Hannah Brier ran 23.59 in the 200m!
