Terrific trio clinch title

Tuesday 6 August 2013

The new format Welsh League concluded in Colwyn Bay on Sunday last, 4th August, and Cardiff AAC topped the men's and overall tables with Cardiff's women second.

Cardiff's "team" consisted of James Thie, Alex Donald and Sue Hooper; James contesting the 100m, 200m and 400m whilst Alex took part in the 3000m and javelin (!) and Sue the 200m and 400m.

The "thrilling three" scored enough points between them to take second place on the day and the overall series title.

The final positions were:

Men:
1.  Cardiff AAC (61 league points)
2.  Barry & Vale H (53)
3.  Swansea H (44)

Women:
1.  Bridgend AC (60)
2.  Cardiff AAC (57)
3.  Swansea H (41)

Combined:
1.  Cardiff AAC (61)
2.  Bridgend AC (49)
3.  Barry & Vale H (47)

With so few South Wales athletes willing to travel to North Wales, and vice versa, perhaps Welsh Athletics should re-consider the event's format, at least from the geographical point of view.
