Whilst most of the weekend's focus was on our six medal haul at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Sopot, or the British Athletics Cross Challenge Final in Birmingham, there was still plenty more action across the country.

Welsh Athletics International, Cardiff, March 8/9

David Omoregie (coach: Mike Guest) continued his fine indoor form to smash his British under-20 record in the 60m hurdles with a time of 7.50 seconds. At the time it was thought to be a World Junior record but later word came through that a French athlete had run two hundredth's quicker just thirty minutes before.

 CIS Track & Field Championships, Edmonton, Canada, March 8

Emma Nuttall (Laurier Primeau) set a personal best with a second time clearance at 1.88m to win the Canadian equivalent of the BUCS Indoor Championships. Her jump also eclipsed the Scottish Indoor record set by Jayne Nisbet (Graham Ravenscroft) just last month at the Sainsbury's British Athletics Indoor Championships and puts her joint second on the Power of Ten rankings.

England Athletics U15 / U17 Combined Events Championships, Sheffield, March 8/9

ESAA Combined Events bronze medallist Harry Sutherland (Ian Grant) won the under-17 heptathlon title by almost 100 points with a score of 4714 which puts him fourth on the indoor all-time lists.

Robert Runciman (Philip Sergeant) went sixth on the under-15 all time lists with his score of 2951 which won by around 400 points.

The under-17 girls title was a much closer affair and won by another ESAA bronze medallist Annabelle Pask (Paul Harrison) by just 14 points.

Scottish champion Holly McArthur (Iain McEwan) won the under-15 title by a healthy margin of 140 points.

Her PB score of 3361 moves her to fourth all time, 10 points of World indoor long jump silver medallist Katarina Johnosn-Thompson (Mike Holmes).

All the winning athletes went top of the Power of Ten rankings in 2014 in their events.
