Another gold for Bethan Sunday 26 June 2016

Bethan Davies

Just as Aled Davies is unbeatable in his events, Bethan Davies is by far the best British race walker of the moment and, today, proved this once again by winning the 5000k walk by over a minute at the British Athletics championships and Olympic trials in Birmingham.

Bethan's time of 22:03.82 improved her own personal best time by three seconds. The day before, she had been in Poland in an unsuccessful attempt to achieve the qualifying standard for the 20k walk.

Also at the trials, Aled yet again improved his own personal best (and, naturally, his own world record) in the F42 shot put with a throw of 16.38m

Three bronze medals Sunday 26 June 2016

Daniel John 2016

At the Welsh Schools and Welsh Athletics combined events championships held in Swansea yesterday, three Cardiff athletes won individual medals and each was a bronze.

Sofia Vella was third in the under 15 girls' age group, Daniel John was third in the under 15 boys' age group and Alana Lea was third in the under 13 girls.

Aled goes to Rio Thursday 23 June 2016

Aled Davies

Aled Davies is amongst the first group of athletes selected by the British Paralympic Association to represent Great Britain at the Rio Olympic Games. He will contest the F42 discus and shot put competitions and is the current world record holder in both events so will start as one of the favourites.

Aled recently set new a world mark in winning the IPC European discus title.

Carwyn wins in Stuttgart Wednesday 22 June 2016

Carwyn Jones Stuttgart 2016

Stuttgart in Germany is one of Cardiff's twin cities and three Cardiff AAC athletes (Carwyn Jones, Mike Kershaw and Carys Hughes) were invited to the annual half marathon and 7k races last Sunday 20th June.

With over 15000 in the half marathon, Carwyn flew the flag for Cardiff by winning in a time of 69.01 while Mike was second home in the 7k race and Carys was 9th in the women's half marathon.

Ultra distance runner Mike Kallenberg has again been selected to represent Great Britain in the IAU 50km World Championships on Friday 11 November in Doha. Mike represented GB in the same event last year finishing in an excellent eighth place.

Harry the hero Monday 20 June 2016

UKYDL 2016

With continuous rain, frequently heavy, throughout the day, the conditions faced by the teams in Swansea yesterday for the third round of the UK Youth Development League (lower age groups) did not dampen their enthusiasm in an enthralling competition.

With rivals Cardiff AAC and Swansea H & AC swapping the lead throughout, Cardiff finally came out on top, winning the final track event, the under 15 boys' 4x300m relay, in great style and heading Swansea by a mere one and a half points, with Cardiff Archers a further 120 points behind in third place.

With one round to go, Swansea lead the division by two league points from Cardiff.

The best of British Sunday 19 June 2016

Owen Smith 2016

The England Athletics Under 23 and Under 20 championships, held in Bedford yesterday and today, are effectively the British championships and it was excellent to see so many Cardiff athletes taking on the best in the UK and not only taking them on but returning with medals.

Jake Heyward (17) continued his run of form to win a tactical under 20 men's 1500m in 3:55.63 while Owen Smith (47.22 - pictured) and Joe Reid (48.06 after 47.91 in his heat) took first and third places in the under 23 men's 400m. In the Under 23 men's 100m, Sam Gordon won the silver medal and David Omoregie ran a season's best 13.65 to take the silver medal in the 110m hurdles.

Rhianwedd best in Caerphilly Sunday 19 June 2016

Rhianwedd Price 2016

Rhianwedd Price (pictured), back home from university in the USA, where she has been clocking up personal best times, was 14th overall finisher today in the Caerphilly 10k road race and first in the women's open race.

Megan Bowen was the first home of the junior women and Rachel Matthews was the best of the F40 ladies.

Elsiddig Ibrahim was 8th overall finisher and first M40 male.

The second round of the Welsh Athletic League was held in Brecon today and it was good to see a number of Cardiff athletes winning their events.

A personal best height was cleared in the pole vault by 16 year old Lois Hillman, who won the competition with a clearance of 3.21m.

Another PB for Jake Friday 17 June 2016

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.

Kath is ranked second over 800m in her native New Zealand.

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.
