Cardiff athletes shine Tuesday 22 March 2016

Ciaran Lewis 2015

After a long journey by coach on Friday last, the Welsh teams were greeted with sunshine and good conditions for the annual SIAB/Welsh Athletics cross country international in Falkirk on Saturday last, 19th March.

With numerous Cardiff athletes in the teams, it was a final opportunity to test themselves against the best.

The best result of the day came from consistent Ciaran Lewis with a fine fifth place in the under 20 home countries international. Jake Heyward, representing Welsh Schools, was eleventh in the same race.

Ready for the summer? Friday 18 March 2016

With the cross country season coming to an end, the first track and field events are only a few weeks away.

The Run Jump Throw in Cardiff on 9th April is specially designed for athletes under 15 and will provide a good guide to team selections for the first league matches. All Cardiff athletes under 15 are expected to enter this competition and entry forms are available in the club room or can be downloaded (see under).

Huge PB for Sarah Monday 14 March 2016

Sarah Omoregie

Sarah Omoregie was selected as February's Athlete of the Month for her Welsh shot put record of 13.83m.

She is also an accomplished multi-eventer and was an excellent third place at the England under 17 championships in Sheffield over last weekend, with a pentathlon score of 3,605 which puts her in third spot on the latest UK rankings.

On the way to her pentathlon score, Sarah produced a massive 1.03m improvement on her shot put best with a throw of 14.86m which takes her to a clear No.1 spot in the UK.

Inter Counties Cross Country Saturday 12 March 2016

Ciaran Lewis 2016

Several Cardiff athletes challenged the best in Britain today at the UK Inter Counties championships in Birmingham.

On a fine day with little wind and on a course that was a mixture of dry surfaces and mud, and included a testing uphill stretch, to come in the first hundred was pretty good, to come in the first fifty very good and in the first twenty excellent.

Ciaran Lewis set the standard in the first race of the day, finishing tenth in the under 20 men's race; and Carys Bill matched that in the under 13 girls' race, both producing outstanding runs.

Congratulations Tim Friday 11 March 2016

There was a new addition to the Fry family last Friday when Tim's wife Hannah gave birth to their first child Elliot.

To welcome the birth, Tim's coaching group last night presented him with some gifts for Elliot.

Tim and Hannah can look forward to some sleepless nights but everything is fine.

Congratulations to Tim and Hannah.

Another record for Bethan Tuesday 8 March 2016

Bethan Davies 2015

It seems that Cardiff's Bethan Davies cannot get out of the habit of breaking records.

On Saturday last, 6th March, she won the gold medal at the England Athletics 10k race walking championship in a new Welsh Record time of 44:59 and moved up to second on the all-time UK rankings behind Johanna Atkinson's leading time of 43:52, set in 2010.

Only a couple of weeks ago, in Cardiff, Bethan set a new UK indoor record for the 3k walk.

Final Gwent League Sunday 6 March 2016

Carys Bill 2016

On a course that was surrounded by snowcapped mountains, the final round of the season's Gwent League was held in Brecon yesterday, 5th March, in sunny and thankfully dry conditions although with a bitingly cold wind.

Despite a lower than usual turnout (the senior men and women were particularly disappointing), Cardiff's junior athletes were to the fore in most of the age groups, with Carys Bill, Jessica Heggarty and Ciaran Lewis winning their races with ease. James Vincent and Laura Wright were also age group winners within combined races.

Academy goes indoors Friday 4 March 2016

On Monday 15th February, over fifty Cardiff Academy athletes assembled at the House of Sport for an evening of sportshall athletics.

The event was kindly supported by Welsh Athletics and all the academy coaches, who even dusted off their spikes for a ‘coaches against the athletes relay'. Needless to say, the athletes won.

Final Gwent League Wednesday 2 March 2016

Blaise Castle XC 2012

The final round of this season's Gwent Cross Country League takes place at Penlan Leisure Centre, Brecon on Saturday next, 5th March.

With Cardiff AAC well placed for lots of individual and team honours, we need a big turn out in order to end the season in style.

If you have not yet informed your team manager that you will be running, please do so straightaway.

Cross Country Heroes Sunday 28 February 2016

WXCCH 2016 Senior Women

Cardiff athletes were out in force at the Welsh Cross Country Championships, held yesterday, 27th February, at Swansea's Singleton Park. On a bright, sunny day on a course that was undulating and very sticky in places, Cardiff vests were to the fore in every age group and brought home great individual and team performances.

Jake Heyward returned to racing with a bang to win the under 17 men's gold medal and lead his team to silver. Other individual medallists were Elis Finlayson (Yr 5 boys' silver), Carys Bill (under 15 girls' silver), Ciaran Lewis (under 20 mens' silver), Morgan James (under 15 boys' bronze), Bethan Evans (under 17 women's bronze), Jessica Hegarty (under 20 women's bronze) and Lucy Marland (senior women's bronze).
