Jake Heyward 2015

Cardiff's Jake Heyward continued to eat away at his 1500m best last night at the BMC Gold Standard races in Watford with a time of 3:46.5 which took him to fourth place on the UK under 20 rankings (Jake is only 17).

Other near best performances came from Tom amd Kath Marshall, with Tom running 3:40.2 for 1500m and Kath running 2:03.56 for 800m.

Is Aled unbeatable? Wednesday 15 June 2016

Aled Davies 2016

With two gold medals at the IPC European Championships in Grosseto, Italy, including a World, European and Championship record in the discus, Aled Davies is on course to complete the double at the Rio Olympic Games.

Aled's winning throw of 54.14m yesterday in the F42 discus was a huge 4.55m further than his own World and European records of 49.59m. Aled had earlier won the F42 shot put with 16.11m, only two centimetres behind his own World and European records.

We are the champions Sunday 12 June 2016

Jac Palmer 2016

On a day in Cardiff that started off rather grey and cold but ended in warm sunshine, Cardiff athletes took home a sackful of medals from the Welsh Championships yesterday.

The senior men's 100m saw Cardiff take the first three places in both the A and B finals, with club athletes occuping six of the eight qualifiers to the A final. There was a clean sweep also in the senior men's javelin and under 17 women's high jump.

Senior club records are of a very high standard and are rarely broken nowadays but Jac Palmer (still only 20) erased Matthew Richards hammer record (64.17m) with a throw of 64.81m.

Steady start for senior ladies Wednesday 8 June 2016

UKWAL 2016

After a slow start,  Cardiff's UK Women's Athletic League team finished with a flourish to win the final event of the day, the 4x400m relay, at the first round match in Bristol on Sunday last, 5th June.

On a day of hot sunshine, Cardiff's ladies showed great team spirit to fill unaccustomed events and none more so than captain Rhiannon Linington-Payne who competed in the long jump and 400m B race (which she won) before taking the first leg in both the 4x100m and 4x400m relays.

Senior men still lead Wednesday 8 June 2016

With several (too many) absentees, Cardiff's senior men's British Athletics League team had to be content with second place behind Bristol & West at Bedford on Saturday last, 4th June, but still lead the division overall after two rounds, with two to go.

Pride of place goes to captain Brett Morse who contested two events, winning his speciality discus and taking second in the shot put, even though he was scheduled to compete the following day in the Diamond League in Birmingham. Olympian Rhys Williams took maximum points in the 400m hurdles after completing a busy period of competition including achieving the Olympic qualifying time for his event.

So near for Bethan Tuesday 7 June 2016

Bethan Davies 2015

Cardiff's Bethan Davies set new Welsh and club records and established herself as the second best ever UK walker over 20k when she won the British Olympic Trials race in Leeds on Sunday, 5th June. Her winning time of 93.48 was, however, an agonising 48 seconds outside the Olympic qualifying time of 93 minutes. For much of the race, Bethan was right on target to qualify but slipped slightly behind the pace in the later stages.

After the race, Bethan commented that, "I am disappointed to have come so close but this is a massive performance after the disappointment of Rome. I did my first ever 20km in training in this park four years ago and I am now half an hour quicker. This shows how far I have come and I will use this as a stepping stone to qualify for London 2017”.

Juniors win by one point Monday 6 June 2016

Rhianna Satterly 2016

Despite lacking several of its points scorers, Cardiff's Welsh Under 15 League team took first place at the third round match at Newport yesterday, 5th June.

In glorious sunny weather, Cardiff scored 1,482 points against Cardiff Archers' 1,481, placing Cardiff in second place in the league with 26 points behind Cardiff Archers' 26.

With one round to go everything is set for an exciting final in Newport on 21st August when Cardiff will be hoping to defend its Welsh League title.

The fast men and women Thursday 2 June 2016

Welsh Athletics logo BEST

The second Welsh Athletics Sprints Evening was held last night, 1st June, at the Cardiff International Sports Campus with no fewer than 51 Cardiff AAC sprinters racing over 100m and 200m. All ages from under 13 upwards, men and women, were included

With 15 heats of the 100m and 14 for the 200m, the event was a great success and marred only by the strong following wing that was well over the permitted limit for the majority of the races.

Nevertheless, the athletes enjoyed the opportunity to produce a large number of wind assisted personal bests.

Close second in WJL Wednesday 1 June 2016

WJL 2016

Despite numerous absentees because of half term holidays, etc. Cardiff's Welsh Under 15 League team finished a close second in the second round of this year's series, held in Newport on Saturday last, 28th May.

Outstanding performances came from Ben Vincent, who improved his personal best long jump by an astonishing 39cm to set a new under 13 club record of 5.12m and go to second on the UK rankings, and Josh Beecher who scored triple wins in the 75m, 150m and long jump.

Silver for Ciaran Tuesday 31 May 2016

Ciaran Lewis 2014

Cardiff's Ciaran Lewis took the silver medal at the European Mountain Running Trials held in Whinlatter Forest, Lake District, on Saturday last, 28th May over a 8.25km course.

The trial counted as the England Athletics official championship and, by coming in the first two, Ciaran should have clinched his place in the British team for the European championship in Arco, Italy, on 2nd July.

Meanwhile, in Belgium, Rhys Williams won an international 400m hurdles race in 49.22, his best time this year and within the Olympic qualifying time of 49.40.
