CARMARTHEN OPEN THROWS MEETINGS 2019 EVENT TWO OF FOUR - 30th MAY

Throwers of all abilities and ages continued their track and field season at the latest competition in Johnstown on Thursday evening, 30th May at the Carmarthen Open Throws Meeting Fixture 2, in which again saw a haul of personal bests recorded.

The second event of the 2019 season was well attended in all age groups with over thirty individuals altogether at Carmarthen Leisure Centre and saw athletes from ten clubs participate - Swansea Harriers, Pembrokeshire Harriers, Carmarthen Harriers, Pontyclun AC, Cardiff Athletics, Cardiff Archers, Neath Harriers, DSW Para Academy, Yeovil Olympiads and Newport Harriers.

The event was supported by a number of qualified and assistant officials from all over South Wales who ensured that events were run properly and eligible for season rankings.

These throws fixtures have now become a popular annual fixture on the Welsh Athletics calendar and has been going strong for 9 years with familiar faces coming back each month. Arranged by Carmarthen & District Harriers AC, the series in West Wales takes place on the final Thursday of each month in April, May, June and July totalling four midweek meetings.

It continues to be organised by the Harriers club javelin coach Ralph Siggery. The under 13 plus competition gives young and senior athletes from clubs across South Wales and further afield the opportunity to improve on their personal power of 10 best performances.

The likes of Bethany Moule, James Tomlinson, Brett Morse and Aled Sion Davies as well as a few Paralympic athletes are just some big names who have been regular attendees at the throws meetings and continue to be great models for the future generation. They have gone on to represent Wales and Great Britain in top international competitions.

Following a great night of Javelin & Shot throwing at the end of April, Thursday Evening's action in May saw the Javelin and Discus field events focused on this week as well as hammer for for Swansea's duo.
