Special meeting at Aberdare track despite cancellation of WMAL T&F Championships...


Report from Roger Garland - Welsh Masters at Aberdare: A very special “meeting” took place at The Ron Jones Stadium in Aberdare last summer.


The Welsh Masters T&F Championships should have been held there on Saturday 29 July, but due to a shortage of officials/helpers the event was cancelled.


However, as Mel and I had already booked hotel accommodation near Aberdare, we decided to go along anyway, for a training session at the Aberdare track.


When we were joined by a few other people, we realised we had assembled a small group that comprised several of the most successful Welsh Masters female athletes of all time!


Collectively, these ladies have amassed over 200 (yes, over two hundred!) Welsh Masters, British Masters, European Masters and World Masters medals.


Roger Garland.
