Let's not forget Christian Wednesday 13 January 2010

 Christian Malcolm

Whilst delighted that Jamie Baulch is going to receive his gold medal after being promoted from silver at the World Championships in Athens, we should think of club star Christian Malcolm who suffered the disapppointment of losing one of his gold medals. Christian was a member of the winning British 4x100 relay team at the 2002 European Championships in Munich but had to give back his medal as the team was subsequently disqualified when Dwain Chambers admitted to doping offences. Despite this loss Christian still has a fantastic collection of medals.

SNOWBOUND STADIUM Sunday 10 January 2010

Winter 2010

The picture was taken on Saturday, 10th January, and shows the stadium covered in snow. The track will remain closed until the snow has gone and it looks as if this is going to be some time. The other stadium facilities may be open but access into the stadium is difficult. The stadium telephone number is 029 2078 8399 and you are advised to check first.

Jamie collects another gold Friday 8 January 2010

Jamie Baulch

Cardiff AAC life member Jamie Baulch has added another world championship gold medal to his collection - 13 years after the race. Jamie was a member of the 4x400m relay team that was placed second in the 1997 World Championships in Athens. Silver became gold after the winning USA team was disqualified when Antonio Pettigrew confessed to a doping offence. Jamie and the rest of the British team will at long last receive their medals. This is a fitting result for Jamie who has a staggering collection of medals from major championships.

Cardiff helps South Wales Wednesday 16 December 2009

Inter regional XC

The Welsh inter regional cross country championships were held at the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells last Sunday, 13th December. On a rare sunny and dry day many of Cardiff's cross country runners were in action in the South Wales team, which secured the overall title. This was a really tough challenge for the younger runners but they did not disappoint.
