James Thie in AW

Former Cardiff AAC club captain, and now successful coach, James Thie was featured in this weekend's edition of Athletics Weekly in a two page spread.


A former successful athlete himself (he was fourth in the 2004 world indoor championships over 1500m), James has built an enviable reputation as a coach with a group of talented athletes that include numerous Cardiff AAC members. Steve Morris represented great Britain in the recent Rio Paralympic Games and was sixth in the T20 1500m.

Cardiff's Rachel Matthews returned from the British Masters championships, held at Birmingham's Alexander Stadium on Saturday and Sunday last, with silver and bronze medals as well as a fourth placing.

On Saturday, Rachel took third place in the W40 category 400m and fourth in the 1500m. She returned on Sunday to take 2nd place in the W40 800m in a season's best 2:27.48.

Treasurer needed

The club urgently needs someone to take over as treasurer from Steve Davies.

Steve has been an excellent treasurer for the past two years but has been forced reluctantly to step down because of pressure in his day job. 

If you are interested to help the club in this way (or can suggest someone who is) please contact chairman Bernie Plain (07976 368 543) as soon as possible. You can be assured of plenty of help in what is an important role.
