Cardiff's team in the UK Youth Development League (upper age group) improved its position at the second round match in Cheltenham on Sunday last, 1st May, finishing fifth of the six teams.

Hit once again by absences through exams and clashes with the Welsh Championships, the team nevertheless showed great team spirit on the day, with several athletes competing in multiple events to help the points situation.

Decathletes qualify Monday 2 June 2014

Curtis Mathews

Cardiff's two leading decathletes have both achieved the qualifying standard for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Curtis achieved a personal best points total of 7,378, including five personal bests, while David Guest, showing a welcome return to form after injury, scored 7,394.

Welsh Championships - 2 Sunday 1 June 2014

800m 2014

The second day of the Welsh Championships produced a further clutch of medals and personal bests for Cardiff athletes.

In the 200m, Cardiff's Sam Gordon took his revenge, inching out Dewi Hammond by one hundredth of a second with Lemarl Freckleton third, Richard Tremblen fourth, Gareth Hopkins fifth and club captain Rhys Knapman sixth. 

Welsh Championships - 1 Saturday 31 May 2014

Dewi Hammond and Sam Gordon 2014

With so many Cardiff athletes on display, the first day of this year's Welsh Championships and Commonwealth Games Trials could have been mistaken for a club championship.

Indeed, the final of the men's 100m was composed entirely of Cardiff athletes, with Dewi Hammond pipping Sam Gordon for the title.

One of the highlights of the field events was 18 year old Jac Palmer's fourth place in the hammer throw with a new Welsh under 20 record with the senior hammer of 58.54m, removing Olympian Shaun Pickering's mark from the record books.

Be proud of your club Friday 30 May 2014

This weekend sees one of the highlights of the Welsh Athletics season when the Welsh Championships and Commonwealth Games trials take place in our home stadium in Cardiff.

The entry lists include a huge number of Cardiff athletes and it would be great to see every one of them wearing the Cardiff AAC vest.

Good luck to every one of you and "fly the flag for Cardiff".

Use it or lose it Wednesday 28 May 2014

The first round of the UK National Development League for older athletes took place on 28th April and Cardiff came last of the six clubs.

Exams and warm weather training meant that the team was heavily depleted but a repeat performance in Cheltenham next Sunday, 1st June, is likely to mean relegation.

This is an excellent level of competition for under 17s and under 20s and we need to do well to retain this opportunity.

Gold for Curtis Monday 26 May 2014

Curtis Mathews

Cardiff's Curtis Mathews triumphed in the England Athletics decathlon championship, held in Bedford on Saturday and Sunday last 24/25 May, to take the gold medal with a score of 7005 points.

Curtis had been lying second after the first day's five events behind Bridgend's David Guest (who competes for Cardiff as a higher claim member) with 3716 against David's 3854 points.
