Despite awful conditions - continuous rain throughout the day and cold - Cardiff athletes turned out in force at the combined South and East Wales regional championships held in Cardiff yesterday, 24th May, and were rewarded with probably a record number of medals.

Amongst many excellent performances, there were clean sweeps of medals in the under 15 boys' 800m, the under 15 girls' 1500m, the under 15 girls' hammer, the under 17 girls' 1500m, the under 20 men's 200m, the under 20 men's 800m, the under 20 men's 1500m, the senior men's 800m and the senior women's 400m.

Silver medal for Ciaran Thursday 22 May 2014

Ciaran Lewis 2014

Fiollowing his win in the Porthkerry 5 mile trail race, Cardiff's Ciaran Lewis travelled to Lancashire for the UK Inter-Counties Fell Running Championship on Sunday last, 18th May, and returned home with the silver medal. The gold went to Max Wharton of Yorkshire.

Ciaran (17) was representing South Wales in the under 18 men's race and, along with Kyle Davies (9th), also took the silver medal in the two-man team race.

Under 15s lead the way Tuesday 20 May 2014

The second round of the Welsh Junior League took place in Cwmbran on Saturday last, 17th May and, once again, Cardiff came second overall.

Lacking numbers in the under 11 and under 13 age groups, the under 15 boys and girls performed strongly, producing numerous winners.

With two round to go before the final in Brecon, Cardiff is well placed to challenge for the lead.

UK best for David Omoregie Sunday 18 May 2014

David Omoregie 2014 Euro record

Cardiff's David Omoregie is flying over the hurdles. In the Loughborough International today he set a new British record for the junior 110m hurdles of 13.23 seconds, the fifth fastest in the world of all time.

Afterwards, David commented that "Obviously it’s a really good time, and I think it’s the joint fastest in the world at the moment. I’m so happy with it; compared to last year I’ve just come on so much and it’s all credit to my coach – I’ve just got to keep it going all the way to Oregon now!”

Cardiff athletes pack team Wednesday 14 May 2014

When the Welsh team to compete in the Loughborough International on Sunday next, 18th May, was announced yesterday, it looked almost as if the Cardiff men's team had been selected en bloc. Perhaps this was not surprising after the club's excellent outing in the BAL premiership on Saturday.

Nineteen men and three women will make the journey looking for good early season performances.

Brilliant day for Cardiff men Sunday 11 May 2014

Tim Fry and David Omoregie 2014

Cardiff's senior men's and women's teams excelled themselves at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium yesterday where, in difiicult weather conditions (a strong and gusty wind and occasional rain), the men's team came second in the opening round of this year's BAL Premiership Division and the women's team was third in their UK Women's Athletic League Division 2 match.

A separate report will follow on the women's team.

In a team competition, the contribution of every single team member is important as every point counts and it is invidious to highlight individual performances. However, that of David Omoregie stands out as, in his first ever race over the senior 110m hurdles he clocked, into a 2m/sec headwind, an outstanding 13.92 seconds which easily beats the qualifying time (14.62 over the senior hurdles) for the IAAF world junior championships later this year.

Promotion beckoning? Sunday 11 May 2014

Not to be outshone by the men, Cardiff's senior women's team produced an excellent performance yesterday to finish in third place in the first round of this year's UK Women's Athletic League Division 2 contest.

With new team manager Sharon Heveran (herself a former Irish international high jumper - and holder of the club record) bursting with enthusiasm and supported by new ladies' captain Rhiannon Linington-Payne, the team was a mere 14 points behind second place and could easily bid for promotion to Division one (the top two teams are promoted) by the end of the three match series.

 

Top challenges for seniors Friday 9 May 2014

Cardiff's senior men's and women's teams start their 2014 campaigns tomorrow at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium when the first rounds of the British Athletics League and UK Women's Athletics League are contested.

The men, in the premier division of the BAL, will be up against the best club teams in Britain and will be looking to consolidate their position at that level. The women, in division two, will be hoping for a good start that could lead to promotion at the end of the season.

21 PBs at Millfield BMC Wednesday 7 May 2014

Sofia Vella 2014

A large contingent of Cardiff athletes travelled to Street in Somerset on Monday, 5th May, in search of good performances and returned with a string of personal best times.

April's athlete of the month John Cove improved his 1500m time to 3:54.25 while ten year olds Iwan Smith and Ben Vincent followed his example.

Club records at Welsh League Tuesday 6 May 2014

Two new club records were set at the Senior Welsh League and open competition held in Cardiff on Sunday last, 4th May.

Brett Morse, looking for a loosening up competition before competing in the IAAF Diamond League in Doha on Friday, threw the discus a modest (for him) 60.45m to improve his own club record. Meanwhile, Jac Palmer improved his own under 20 hammer record to 64.23m.

Elsewhere, David Omoregie set a legal personal best of 10.87 for the 100m (into a -2m/s wind) and Anax Da Silva also improved his legal best to 10.85.
