TWO Wrexham athletes have become national champions.

A quintet of Wrexham AAC members travelled to Cardiff to compete in the Welsh U15 and senior track and field championships.

Talented Lucy Jones, competing in the U15 girls' section, took part in four different disciplines - and she triumphed in one of them.

A hop, skip and leap of 9.39 metres saw her crowned as Welsh champion in the triple jump.

Adding to this, a personal best effort of 4.86 metres saw Lucy as the runner-up in the long jump, while she achieved another personal best (27.10 seconds) in the 200 metres.

Lucy also took to the start line for the 300 metres, where she finished fourth in 44.04.

Ella Davis was also a part of the field in the U15 girls' category, achieving a personal best of 11-29.69 for seventh in the 3000m, a position she emulated in the 800m (2-27.30).

Wrexham's other Welsh champion is Thomas Williams, who won the U15 boys' hammer with a terrific effort of 55.67 metres.

Two club members were in action in the senior men's events.

Thomas Walley continued his recent success by finishing third in the pole vault.

He managed to clear 4.80 metres on the day.

Meanwhile, Oliver Edwards clocked a time of 52.08 seconds in his heat for the 400-metres.

A hat-trick of podium positions went the way of Amanda Broadhurst at the British Masters track and field championships in Derby.

She was the runner-up in the 80-metre hurdles with a time of 15.01 seconds, while Amanda came third in two other disciplines.

These were the shot putt (9.65 metres) and javelin (24.66 metres).

A bit closer to home and two Wrexham AAC vests were on show at the Port Sunlight 10k.

Andrew Jones crossed the line as the first M45 - and 17th overall - in 38.18, with David Millington stopping the watch on 43.30 for 54th spot.
