As the 2013 outdoor season gets underway several WAFEL athletes will be in action this weekend.

At the Flanders Cup Meeting in Kessel-Lo on Saturday (8) middle distance specialist Jan will be looking to improve on his 800m season’s best clocking of 1.47.94.

Multi-event standouts Thomas Van der Plaetsen and Nafi Thiam will be looking for some quality throwing in the discus and javelin and shot put respectively. We will see Thomas line up in the 200m as well.

Also this weekend we will see US hurdler Fred Townsend lining up 110m hurdles against Dutchman Gregory Sedoc in the Gouden Spike in Leiden, The Netherlands.
