Great team spirit Monday 18 July 2016

Scarlett Russell 2016

Cardiff's UK Youth Development League (lower age group) team travelled to Cheltenham on Saturday last, 16th July, for the fourth and final round of this year's campaign.

Team Managers Jen Stone and Annie Hillman thought that the team, weakened through absences, would struggle but a great team spirit throughout the day saw the squad come through to finish an excellent second behind league leaders Swansea, who go on to the national final. Cardiff has an outside chance of joining them, depending on a paper comparison of all the runners up.

Sarah was one of only two Welsh event winners, taking the girls shot put, while Tom's second place in the shot put with a personal best 16.20m earned for him the Most Meritorious Performance by a Welsh boy.

Euro gold for Jake Sunday 17 July 2016

Jake Heyward 2016

Athlete of the month in June, Jake Heyward has staked his claim for the award again in July by taking the gold medal at the European under 18 championships in Tbilisi, Georgia yesterday, 16th July.

After winning his heat, despite being tripped, Jake went into the final as the fastest European on display and the clear favourite. Despite slight illness in the days leading up to the final, Jake won a relatively slow, tactical race in 4:00.64 and is European champion.

No Rio for Rhys Saturday 16 July 2016

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's Rhys Williams has had his appeal against non-selection for the Olympic Games turned down by UK Athletics.

Automatic qualification required that an athlete come in the first two at the UK trials and have at least two qualifying times. A third place was available at the discretion of the selectors. Rhys came third at the trials and achieved his second qualifying time at the European Championships last week where he came fifth in the final and was the best British performer in his event, the 400m hurdles. He was omitted from the Olympic team and appealed. His appeal was supported by Welsh Athletics.

After finishing a creditable fifth in the first round match of this year's UK Women's Athletics League, Cardiff's senior ladies slipped to seventh place last Sunday, 3rd July, at the Lee Valley stadium in London.

Cardiff finished the day on a good note by winning the final event, the 4x400m relay but now need an improved performance in the third and final round on 7th August in Manchester in order to retain its place in this division.
