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.

With numerous Cardiff AAC athletes in the Welsh schools team that competed in the annual SIAB schools international between Wales, Scotland, England and Ireland on Saturday last, it was Sarah Omorehgie and Tom Hanson who came away with the honours.

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.

Ladies first Thursday 14 July 2016

Cosmeston relays 2016

Cardiff AAC were represented by no fewer than five ladies' teams at the popular Cosmeston Relays, held in Cosmeston Park, Penarth last night.

The A team of Ffion and Rhianwedd Price and Emily Brown were not only the winners of the senior ladies category but were first home of the entire race, including all the men's teams.

Juniors off to final Monday 11 July 2016

Evie Wong

With the advantage of a home match, Cardiff's Welsh Under 15 League team were clear winners of the fourth round match at Cardiff International Sports Campus on Saturday last 9th July.

 

Cardiff, along with Cardiff Archers, Rhymney Valley AC and Newport Harriers are qualified from the South East division to the national final and Cardiff will be looking to retain the title that they won last year.

 

The Welsh final will be held in Newport on Sunday 20th August.

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.

Senior men still lead - just Monday 4 July 2016

With a team depleted by clashes with other events, Cardiff's British Athletics League team slipped to fourth place in the third round match held in Kingston on Saturday last, 2nd July, but still lead the division overall by one point.

With Brett Morse and Curtis Mathews competing in seven events between them, the team finished on a high note by winning both the 4x100m and 4x400m relays.

With one match to go, a strong team is needed for the final round to assure promotion to Division one.

Lauren Evans 1 and Isobel Breeden 2

With Cardiff AAC sprinters turning out in force, the second Welsh Athletics sprints open meeting went ahead last night in Cardiff and, despite the damp, dreary and chilly conditions, a favourable wind that, for most races was within the legal limit, helped to produce numerous personal best performances.

Seventy two athletes (including thirty five from Cardiff) contested ten heats of the 100m, with Cardiff athletes winning seven of them.
