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”.

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.

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.

Clear win for juniors Monday 30 May 2016

Jasper Hawkins 2016

On a glorious sunny day that was marred only by a gusting wind that was over the limit for some events, Cardiff's UK YDL (U17/U20 age groups) scored a convincing win in the second round match in Newport yesterday, 29th May.

After coming fourth in the first round match in Plymouth, Cardiff AAC has improved to second place overall, only one point behind the league leaders.

PBs at BMC GP Sunday 29 May 2016

James Vincent 2014

It was well worth the trip to Watford last night to take part in the British Milers'Club Grand Prix meeting as six Cardiff athletes returned home after producing personal best times.

Leading the charge was Katherine Marshall who is hoping to represent her native New Zealand at the Rio Olympic Games. Katherine edged closer to the two minute barrier with 2:03.90 for the 800m.

Big PB for Jonathon Monday 23 May 2016

Jonathon Bailey

Cardiff's Jonathon Bailey improved his high jump best by a massive 6cms when he cleared the bar at 2.09m during yesterday's Loughborough International.

A strong wind made it tricky for all competitors except the 100m sprinters so Jonathon's performance was particularly good.

Personal bests were also recorded by 400m runner Owen Smith who was timed at 46.81 for the one lap race and Sam Gordon with a legal 10.43 for the 100m. 

Summer in Swansea Monday 23 May 2016

Nia Grundy 2016

The forecast had promised early rain but sunshine later. No such luck - there was heavy rain for most of the day along with cold and wind. These were the conditions for the second round of this season's UK YDL (lower age group) at Swansea last Saturday 21st May. Luckily, the high jump and pole vault competitions could be held indoors.

After finishing third in the first round on 24th April, Cardiff took second place behind Swansea on Saturday, pushing Cardiff Archers into third spot. After two rounds, Cardiff AAC and Cardiff Archers both have 9 league points, with Archers narrowly ahead on match points.
