Adam earns S-W Gold Medal in Cardiff Open!

On Saturday, Jan 19th, at the Cardiff Met, GP2 Non-Thomas Open Meeting, Adam Booth ran in two events. These meetings stage multiple heats which are often mixed age-groups.

In the M400m, Adam won Heat 5 in 54.73 which is not far from his best indoor performance.   In the U20M 60m Hurdles Heat 1, he placed third in a new PB of 8.52, an improvement of 0.11 secs, which in such a short race is huge!

In so doing, he was also the best u20M from the South-West and thus earned a gold medal.  As when he does multi-events, it proves again that determination and committed, hard work mostly brings improvement and success. Well done, him! And the driver!


  1. We hope to finish the programme on Jan. 27th. by 3.00 pm.
  2. Athletics 365 is a certificated scheme in which the athlete has to reach the standard in a series of tests. The idea is that they will have shown a basic ability for running, jumping, throwing, hurdles and relay. Any of our u11s and u13s are capable of achieving these standards and thus gaining a certificate and wristband! It is the foundation of what we then go onto outdoors from March 2nd. It will need two full sessions.
  3. The Regional Final at Paignton, Torbay, is on Sat, March 9th.
