Cardiff Met athletes Joe Brier and Piers Copeland have dreams to race at the Olympic Games – but admit it is more likely to be at Paris in 2024 than this year in Tokyo. The students both underlined their growing stature on the track with impressive performances at last week’s British Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow. Brier finished second in the 400m and Brier was third in the 800m after indoor seasons that have been disrupted following the postponement of the World Indoor Championships in China – scheduled for next month - because of the spread of coronavirus.

Some might describe it as plain daft especially as no matter what controversial decisions there may have been by the referee, France were clearly the better side.
