BBC Sport - Jake Heyward: Welsh 1500m runner through to European Junior final

Wales's Heyward through to European Junior final

Cardiff's Jake Heyward is through to the 1500m final at the European Junior Athletics Championships in Grosseto, Italy.

The 18-year-old crossed the line in fourth in his heat to secure a spot in Saturday's medal race.

Heyward - who broke a 33-year-old Welsh junior record to qualify for the Championships - led for most of the race, but eased off when he knew he was guaranteed a top-four finish.

The Cardiff AAC runner won gold at the European Youth Championships last summer.
