Cardiff's senior men's team travelled to Southampton on Saturday, 6th June, and, despite the heroic efforts of those who competed, finished in seventh place, slipping into overall eighth and at risk of relegation to Division 2 of the British Athletics League.

With two rounds to go, there is every chance of avoiding relegation and Cardiff certainly has the potential to put out a team that is not only capable of keeping its place in this division but of regaining a place in the Premier Division.

Well done Welsh Athletics Thursday 4 June 2015

CISS

Welsh Athletics' Sprints Open meeting, held at Cardiff International Sports Stadium last night was a great success and must surely be repeated on a regular basis.

The event was blessed with a beautiful summer's evening with a light following wind.

Such was the support from athletes that no fewer than 17 heats of the 100m were needed and 13 for the 200m. A second round of 100m races needed a further ten heats.

It was a worthwhile journey to Manchester on Saturday last, 30th May, for several Cardiff athletes to take part in the British Milers Club Grand Prix.

Personal best times were recorded by Jake Heyward (1:52.19 for 800m), John Cove (3:51.82 for 1500m) and new member (and New Zealand international) Katherine Marshall (2:04.42 for 800m) as well as a seasonal best for Ffion Price of 4:22.58 for 1500m.

Kevin Seaward was just outside his best for the 5000m with 14:20.89.

YDL Juniors march on Monday 1 June 2015

Jay Morse 2014

The second round of this year's UK Youth Development League (lower age group) was held at Bath University track on Saturday last, 30th May and, although not quite matching its winning performance in the first round, Cardiff's team remains on course for a place in the final later in the season.

Making a big contribution to Cardiff's second place score, Jay Morse won three events, including a club record in the under 15 boys'discus where his winning throw of 48.87m was a massive 5m better than his previous best and took him to No.1 on the latest UK rankings - matching big brother Brett. Jay also won the A hammer competition and the B shot put (the latter with another personal best).

The summer season is now in full flow with plenty of competitions to think about.

On Saturday, the club's UK YDL team travels to Bath for the second round of this year's series. After topping the first round, the team will want to maintain its winning streak; to make the national final in Birmingham on 5th September would be a real feather in the caps of all those athletes who make it possible.

Medal haul at Newport Sunday 24 May 2015

Jonathon Bailey

On a near perfect day, Cardiff athletes turned out in force at the combined South and East Wales Regional Championships held at Newport yesterday, 23 May; and produced a medal count to match.

Amongst numerous personal bests and championship best performances an intriguing high jump competition saw under 17 winner Charlie Pegrum (16) push under 20 winner Tom Trotman (17) to a big new personal best of 1.98m who, in turn, pushed senior men's winner Jonathon Bailey (19) to his personal best of 2.03m.

Brett and Ciaran win Monday 18 May 2015

Brett Morse and Ciaran Lewis were both winners over the weekend.

Brett was part of the Welsh squad at the Loughborough International on Sunday, 18th, and got his season off to a strong start with a winning discus throw of 63.42m, taking him immediately to the top of the UK rankings.

Ciaran was part of a two man South Wales team that took the bronze medal at the UK Inter-Counties under 18 fell running championships at Bettws Y Coed on Saturday. Ciaran received the gold medal as the race winner with Cardiff team mate Sam Curwen 16th.

YDL at Cardiff Sunday 17 May 2015

Kristian Jones 2015

The UK Youth Development League (U20/U17) returned to Cardiff yesterday, 17th May, and on a sunny day that was spoiled only by a strong headwind in the finishing straight. Cardiff finished fourth of the six competing clubs.

The Cardiff team had been heavily depleted by absences because of examinations but those that were looking for a breather from revision produced some excellent performances. Particularly noticable was Kristian Jones' 100/200 double win including a fine 10.97 100m into a minus 1.8 wind.
