Oh Jeremiah: Defending Champ Azu In Dramatic Dead-Heat Finish

Jeremiah Azu was involved in a dramatic 60m final at the England Athletics age group championships in Sheffield at the weekend. The Cardiff teenager got off to a relatively slow start, but soon got into his stride to challenge Liverpool’s Henry Nwoke for the title with a late dip for the line in a desperately close finish. The commentators initially called Azu as the winner, but it soon became evident no-one could be certain whether the Welshman had retained his title or if Nwoke had just held on to earn the crown.

Taulupe Faletau Insists Wales Cannot Be Judged By England Yardstick

Defeats against Ireland and France have left hopes of a successful title defence in tatters for Wales, who play England on March 7.

Pointless Wales Are Given A Harsh Lesson by France, But Geraint Lewis Insists Better Times Lie Ahead

Wales were ruthlessly “nilled” in their third Women’s Six Nations game of the tournament – going down 50-0 to a France team in a class above at Cardiff Arms Park.

Magnificent Melissa Wins First British Senior Title

Melissa Courtney-Bryant claimed her first ever senior British title with a perfectly judged tactical run in the British Athletics Indoor 3,000m final in Glasgow. The Welsh Commonwealth Games 1500m bronze medallist showed great patience during the earlier stages of the race which were run at an almost pedestrian pace. When Rosie Clarke upped the pace with just under 1,000m to go, Courtney-Bryant was one of three athletes who went with her.

James Hunt and Melanie Wilkins overcame strong fields and even stronger winds to claim the senior Welsh Cross Country Championship titles at Pembrey Country Park on Saturday. Hundreds of athletes from primary school age to over 70s travelled from all over the country to brave the elements on the exposed coastal course.
