Carmarthen and District Harriers Athletics Club had 2 SIAB (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales) Schools International winners and both athletes won gold medals in the javelin event and both were coached at Carmarthen by the Carmarthen Harriers javelin coach Ralph Siggery.

Josh Madden won in Newport in 2007 and Jon Llewelyn on 18 July 2009 in Antrim N Ireland with a fine throw of 62.32m

Jon Llewelyn a pupil at Tregib secondary school Llandeilo Carmarthenshire joined Carmarthen Harriers as a first year under 15 athlete in 2006. Like many other Carmarthen Harriers members in that period he competed in all the throwing events

However, with Ralph Siggery as a coach he concentrated on the javelin event and had an outstanding career in that event as is shown below

  • 7 Welsh championships gold medals in the javelin event
  • Competed for Welsh Schools in 2 SIAB Schools (England,Ireland,Scotland,Wales) international matches (third in Bedford in 2008 and first in Antrim in 2009)
  • Competed for Welsh Schools in the UK School Games in Bath in 2008

In 2009 Jon was favorite to win the javelin event at the 2009 Celtic Junior Games in Carmarthen on 6 August 2009. However, a month before the event he had an accident on his motorbike and had an operation to remove his spleen

Jon Llewelyn was an excellent Carmarthen Harriers member, Dyfed Schools and West Wales team member. He was always willing and prepared to compete in other throwing events besides his main event the javelin
