Iestyn Edwards is a new addition to the TeamThie family after joining the group in 2019 after impressing as a junior through the age groups on the track and cross country surfaces. Iestyn’s primary focus is the 1500m where he has already achieved some success at junior level, but he has hopes to move over to the steeplechase in the near future. The Cardiff AAC runner placed 3rd at the Welsh Schools 1500m national championships in 2019 in front of a home crowd at the Cardiff International sports stadium. Edwards also won his first regional title when he crossed the line in first place for the under 20 age group at the South Wales 1500m championships in Aberdare. Edwards will be starting his Sport and Exercise Science course at Cardiff Metropolitan University in September, so the young Welsh runner has a bright future ahead of him.
