 SIXTY YEARS AGO

 

 

Athletics events stole the show at Pontypridd Council's Air Show on Whit Monday 1960.  By their conduct and sportmanship the athletes were a credit to Welsh Athletics and the people of Pontypridd were quick to show their appreciation.

FIFTY YEARS AGO

 

Troedyrhiw AC decided in 1970 to hold track events at the Afon Taf track instead of their annual road races.

They were run in complete darkness and the timekeepers had to use cigarette lighters to read

their watches.

 

SEVENTY YEARS AGO

 

In 1950 the Welsh AAA instituted a Plaque of Honour for valued services rendered by members and the first award was made posthumously to the late

Mr E W O'Donnell.

The 76th Welsh Senior XC Champs held at a cold, wet and windy Swansea on

2 Feb 1980 were a bit

of an anti climax.  

Steve Jones and Tony Simmons broke away from the field and decided to

run in together to create the first ever dead heat in the history of the race.

UK Vests

UK Indoor Track and Field Vests

 

An attempt has been made to list all Welsh athletes who have represented the UK at Senior, U23 and U20 level.  Every indoor international match and indoor Championship that the UK has participated in has been listed.  For each athlete information is provided about their performance ie event, finishing position and time/distance.

 

Information is provided by year, alphabetically and by the number of vests.

 

At the end of 2016/2017 season Colin Jackson tops the men's list with 25 vests and Catherine Murphy the women's lists with 13.
