REMI Adebiyi kept the Welsh 1500m title in Gwent after a commanding display saw him succeed 2018 champion Ieuan Thomas at Cardiff’s National Indoor Athletics Centre.

Newport Harriers ace Adebiyi finished fourth behind Pontypool’s Thomas 12 months ago but surged to Welsh Senior Indoor Championships gold this time around.

He clocked a time of three minutes 57.92 seconds in the capital, just getting the better of Team Bath’s John Howorth, who was less than a second behind.

With Englishman Howorth not eligible for a medal, Matthew Williams, of Pembrokeshire Harriers, took silver and Adebiyi’s Newport clubmate Jackson Mountford claimed bronze in 4:01.89mins.

West Monmouth School teacher Sian Swanson won her 20th Welsh title in the triple jump – and she did it after breaking a toe just 48 hours earlier.

With the toe heavily strapped, Cardiff AAC’s Swanson, previously a high jumper, leapt 11 metres 60 centimetres for yet another senior triumph.

In winning, Swanson retained the crown she won in 2018 and got the better of former Cwmbran Harriers ace Macey Jones, now competing for Swansea Harriers, whose 11.37m gave her silver.

Newport-born Mica Moore, back in athletics as she takes a break from the bobsleigh, was third in a hugely competitive 60m.

Having won her heat in 7.56 seconds, Moore ran 7.54secs in the final, just behind Shannon Malone and Hannah Brier – a photo finish was needed to crown Malone the champion.

Also at senior level, 200m silver and bronze went to ex-Cwmbran sprinter Gabrielle Fakande (Swansea) and Blackwood’s Caitlyn Mapps (Cardiff Archers) respectively.

There were silvers for Newport Harriers Tom Evans (400m) and Daniel Cork (shot put) and Rhymney Valley AC’s Fyn Corcoran (60m hurdles), while Blaenau Gwent AC’s Emilie Davies grabbed bronze in the long jump.

Meanwhile, former Newport star Macey Morris, now representing Swansea Harriers, stormed to gold in the U17 300m, breaking the tape more than two seconds ahead of Antonia Dawes (Newport).

There was a double for Newport in the boys’ and girls’ U15 shot put thanks to Morgan Keen Williams and Amelia Fettis, who won by a staggering 82cms from Rhymney’s Sarie Watkins.

Newport’s Iwan Dark finished second behind Keen Williams.

Other medallists in the younger age group were Lily Hart (Newport), second in the 1500m, William Hawker (Rhymney), second in the 300m, and Leo Stark (Newport), third in the 800m.
