Ava grabs second place

Sunday 17 January 2010

Cardiff AAC's Irish international Ava Hutchinson (pictured) ran an excellent race to finish second in the senior ladies' race at today's Cardiff Cross Challenge. British international Hattie Dean was a convincing winner as Ava ran strongly for second ahead of previous winners Andrea Whitcombe and Tara Krzwicki.

Earlier in the day, Ava had watched her partner Alex Hains narrowly miss out on the medals, finishing fourth in the senior men's race.

Further success for Cardiff athletes came in the Under 17 inter schools race where the winning team representing Cardiff & Vale Schools contained no less than four Cardiff members; Elliott Slade, Rory Hyslop, Mike Ward and Rhys George.

After the snow and rain of the past days, the Blackweir course was in excellent condition and well prepared for these annual races.
