MBE for John Lister Tuesday 15 June 2010

John Lister

Cardiff AAC’s John Lister has been awarded the MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List. The award comes for his remarkable achievement in athletics as a competitor and administrator at club, Welsh, UK and at European level for over 50 years. John won 12 Welsh athletics titles between 1963 and 1966 as a hurdler, decathlete and high jumper, and also set a Welsh record for the latter.

Welsh Championships - 2 Sunday 13 June 2010

Emma Peters WCH2010

The second day of the 2010 Welsh Championships was thankfully dry but with a gusting wind. Cardiff athletes added to the club's medal haul which included another clean sweep, this time in the men's 800m with Gareth Warburton, Joe Thomas and Gareth Wiltshire taking gold, silver and bronze. Rhys Williams' 49.89 in the 400m Hurdles, leading from the gun and into a strong wind on the home straight, was very impressive, as was Amanda Moss's equally dominating win in the women's 800m. A SELECTION OF PHOTOGRAPHS (by IAN DIXON) OF CARDIFF ATHLETES IS NOW AVAILABLE IN THE GALLERIES SECTION.

Welsh Championships - 1 Saturday 12 June 2010

Sara Barry

On a warm and sunny day, albeit with an unpredictable wind, it was good to see so many Cardiff members challenging for medals at the Welsh Championships, held in Cardiff today, 12 June. Amongst the many medals won by Cardiff athletes, pride of place goes to the 100m senior men, where Cardiff had 6 of the 8 finalists and took all three medals through Christian Malcolm, Liam Duff and Lloyd Reffell. Sara Barry (pictured), coached by former triple jumper Sean Power, took gold in the triple jump and improved her own championship best performance.

Juniors win again Thursday 10 June 2010

Cardiff's Welsh Under 15 League team travelled to Newport last Sunday, 6th June, for the third round of this year's series and enjoyed another very successful day with numerous winners and new league records.

Brilliant start for seniors Sunday 6 June 2010

Rhiannon Yates

Cardiff's British League and UK Women's League teams got the season off to a flying start in Cardiff yesterday, 5th June. With welcome fine weather all day, the women won their match convincingly from Welsh rivals Swansea whilst the men's team, newly promoted to a higher division, finished a clear second, having led the competition for much of the day. Pictured is athlete of the match Rhiannon Yates, winner of the long jump and second in the 100mB.

First test for senior teams Wednesday 2 June 2010

BAL Kingston 22 Aug 2009

The club's British League and UK Women's League teams set out on this season's campaigns on Saturday next, 5th June. As this is a home match in Cardiff, it would be good if as many members as possible came to cheer the senior men and women in this first round of 2010. The first event is at 11am and the last relay is at 5.30pm and fine weather is forecast.

Welsh Junior League team Monday 31 May 2010

Please can any junior boys (under11, under 13 and under 15) who wish to compete in Newport next Sunday, 6th June, please contact Kay Chapman asap on 07749 716151 so they can be selected. This is because boy's team manager Mark Muller will be unavailable for this match. Next Sunday's match will be the third in this year's series and follows a very successful outing to Hereford on 22 May when the team cames first and heads the league.

Sizzling run from Christian Sunday 30 May 2010

 Christian Malcolm

Cardiff star Christian Malcolm was clocked at 10.15 in winning his semi final of the 100m at today's UK Inter Counties championships in Bedford. Unfortunately, the wind speed was over the limit at 6.7 m/sec (yes, 6.7) but this should not detract from his performance. UK Athletics' statistician and athletics expert Ian Hodge, who saw the race, believes that Christian is "80% back to his best form".

Lucozade refreshes? Saturday 29 May 2010


Cardiff AAC has been selected as one of only two Welsh clubs to benefit from a specialist advice programme being funded by Lucozade Sport, one of UK Athletics’ sponsors. Matt Furber, a sports scientist specialising in nutrition and performance analysis, will be running a series of consultations over the next twelve months that can benefit the club’s athletes and coaches.
