Olympic qualifier for Kevin

Tuesday 29 September 2015

Cardiff member Kevin Seaward (pictured after the race), who runs for his native Ireland, ran his best ever marathon in Berlin on Sunday last, 27th September, to finish in 21st place in 2:14.52, a personal best by four minutes and a time that achieves Ireland's qualifying time of 2:17 for the Rio Olympoic Games next year.

Kevin was the first home of three Irish athletes who all finished under the qualifying time.

His time takes him to second on the Cardiff AAC all time marathon list behind Dennis Fowles and pushes current club President Bernie Plain into third spot.

The final fling of the track and field season saw Casey Grimwade, Bethan Gammon, Jay Morse, Ffion Palmer and Kieran Grimwade travel to Wrexham last weekend in search of good throwing performances with which to end their seasons. And they were not disappointed.

Cassey, Jay and Kieran all returned with personal best performances and Cassey improved her under 13 girls' discus club record with a throw of 28.41m

The full results can be seen on Power of Ten.

A "final final fling" is being organised at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium tomorrow evening.
