Tom Hanson 2015

Cardiff athletes won a further 27 medals on the second day of the Welsh Championships in Newport yesterday, 16th August.

While Tom Hanson (pictured) set a new championship best performance in winning the under 15 boys' shot put with a throw of 15.62m (just short of a personal best), Tom Britt picked up two gold medals, in the under 15 boys' 80m hurdles and the long jump, to add to the silver he won in the pole vault the day before.

The rivalry between Abi Fisher and Kiara Frizelle over 1500m continued with Kiara once again just edging out Abi to take the under 15 girls' title.

Iwan Robinson-Booth and Jake Dawkins added the 200m titles to those over 100m whilst Jay Morse won his specialist discus to add to his hammer win. And the day ended on a high note with consistent Isabel Breeden winning the under 15 girls' 75m hurdles and Clara Nuthall third.

Medals and PBs aplenty Sunday 16 August 2015

Ffion and Jac Palmer 2015

Cardiff athletes completed the first day of the Welsh Under 15 and Under 20 championships in Newport yesterday, 15th August, with medals and personal best performances. Of the 23 medals won, just over half were achieved with individual best performances which is extremeny encouraging.

Cardiff athletes were first second and third home in the Under 20 800m through Nicholas Jones, Elliott Richards and Dafydd George whilst brother and sister hammer throwers Jac and Ffion Palmer (pictured) both won medals, Jac securing the Under 20 gold with a championship best performance and Ffion (still only 15) taking silver in the Under 20 women's event with a personal best.

Mixed fortunes for seniors Tuesday 11 August 2015

UKWAL June 2015

Cardiff's senior men's and women's teams were in action last weekend with the men competing in Liverpool on Saturday, 8th, and the ladies in Wigan the following day, Sunday 9th.

Although taking only one individual event victory, excellent team support saw the women achieve their best result of the season, finishing in a fine third place and securing their place in the UK Women's Athletic League Division one for a further season.

On the other hand, the men, with a seriously depleted team, could only finish eighth and last of the teams and are relegated to Division two of the British Athletics League.

Another summer's day Tuesday 4 August 2015

WJL Aug 2015 U15 athletes

Adfter the soaking at Swansea the previous weekend, it was not much better in Hereford on Saturday last, 1st August, for the final round of the Welsh Junior League. With sunshine, sudden downpours of rain and a blustery wind, nobody would have been surprised had it snowed.

Overcoming it all, Cardiff's young athletes were determined once again to make their marks and sailed through to the Welsh final in Newport on 23rd August as overall winners of the under 15 (boys and girls) and under 13 (boys and girls) categories.

A summer sport? Monday 27 July 2015

The day was cold, with relentless, driving rain. It eased for an hour or so in the afternoon but returned for the final hour. These were the conditions that Cardiff's UK Youth Development League (upper age group) had to contend with in Swansea yesterday, Sunday 26th July, for the final round of this year's series.

Despite absentees, all credit must go to those athletes (and officials) who turned out to support their team and to ensure that Cardiff finished fourth and secured its place in the Midlands Premier division for next year.
