Wales continued to be the destination of choice for Olympic hopefuls to launch their "Road to Rio" campaign as many of the best athletes in the United Kingdom travelled to the National Indoor Athletics Centre in Cardiff to compete in the latest meeting, following on from last weekend's Welsh Senior Indoor Championships

Wales Under 20's took on England Under 20's in the Indoor International which featured several European and Welsh Champions. The strongest possible Welsh team at this level was selected for the match after impressing at previous competitions.

After 26 events and another unmissable day in the Welsh Capital - including a few club relay competitions & Welsh 3000m Championships which were incorporated into the fixture - England won the match with 204 points and Wales in second place with 104 points. The English athletes were dominated throughout, Wales' first positions came from the likes of Hannah Brier in the 60m, Emily Wright in the Long Jump & Wales U20 4x200m Relay team (George Thomas, Rhodri Williams, Ben Paris, Kristian Jones) in a very close race!
