Willis gets GB vest


Wrexham's Matthew Willis is one of the country's top young running prospects but his talents go wider than that, as he proved at the Blenheim Youth Sprint Triathlon.

 The 15-year-old finished  fifth overall but was first under 17, qualifying  him for the Great Britain tea m for the European Youth Relay Championships in Banyoles, Spain, on July 25-26.

 It is an outstanding achievement as he is two years younger than most of the other members of the six-strong GB team.

PB for Malone


Deeside teenager Shannon Malone is edging ever closer to the qualifying time for the European U20 championship.

 At Mannheim in Germany she set a new pb of 11.75 in the 100m heat then in the "A" final came second in 11.91 into a -1.4 headwind.

 The 18-year-old is now ranked fifth in the UK under-20 and has her sights set on the qualifying time of 11.65.
