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.
