Wednesday 8th June and Monday 13th June saw the Dyfed Schools Athletics Championships return to the refurbished Carmarthen Leisure Centre Athletics Track in Johnstown for the first time in three years.
It saw approximately 300 athletes in year 7 to sixth form compete from more than 20 schools and colleges in the Pembrokeshire, Brianne, Llanelli and Ceredigion areas.
The top two finishers in each event from the four area championships last month at Carmarthen qualified to represent their area at the two-day weekday event (along with athletes in the other disciplines).
The action got underway last Wednesday daytime as the majority of events were held over a five-hour timetable - 100m/200m/300m/400m sprints, sprint hurdles, 800m and 1500m, long jump, triple jump, high jump, shot, javelin and discus.
The other six disciplines were completed five days later on Monday evening of this week, including the 300m hurdles, 1000m Walk, 1500m steeplechase and 3000m along with the hammer and pole vault.
Dyfed Schools Championships records were broken in the following events, congratulations to:
