Welcome to Wales' Premier Athletic Club
together we are one

A busy weekend

Sunday 8 November 2015

Cardiff athletes were out in force this weekend with competitions indoors and out. The second round of the Gwent League was held in Cardiff's Llandaff Fields whilst the multi-event athletes were competing for titles at the NIAC in Cardiff. And, on Saturday, a group of Cardiff cross country runners had travelled to Milton Keynes for the British Cross Challenge.

And successes came thick and fast.

In Milton Keynes, rivals Abi Fisher and Kiara Frizelle were 5th and 8th respectively in the under 15 girls' race and Jon Hopkins was 8th in the senior men's race. Ryan Edwards was 21st in the under 13 boys' race.

The joint Welsh Athletics and Welsh Schools combined events championships at NIAC saw medals coming to Cardiff athletes who were also representing their schools.

Gold medals went to Lauren Evans (under 18 girls), Harry Hillman (under 18 boys) and Tom Britt (under 16 boys). Jordan Fender took the silver medal in the under 16 boys' event and Saffron Maurice took silver in the under 14 girls' event; whilst Evie Wong was 4th in the under 13 girls, Ben Hillman also 4th in the under 14 boys and Sofia Vella was 6th in the under 16 girls'event.

The combined events results can be seen HERE and a selection of photographs can be seen HERE.

A report of the Gwent League will follow.
