Hi Everyone, Just seen the results of the Indoor Meeting in Cardiff yesterday ( Cardiff Met GP2) and pleased to report that Kane Howitt broke his own Senior Club Record with a time of 6.93 secs in taking 5th place in the Final. This breaks his own record of 6.99 set in 2018. He also recorded 6.94 in his heat. He also won the number one 200m race in a time of 22.07 which was the fastest time recorded at the meet of 13 races. This is a new indoor PB for Kane beating his previous best of 22.35.

Well done Kane.
