Schools champions Tuesday 7 July 2015

Cardiff athletes were to the fore at the Welsh Schools Athletics championships held at Cardiff International Sports Stadium on Saturday last, 4th July.

Welsh Record for Bethan Tuesday 7 July 2015

Bethan Davies 2015

In a close race to the finish, Cardiff's Bethan Davies (photograph taken by Peter Morris) was narrowly beaten for the gold medal in the 5k walk at last weekend's British Championships by the UK leading Joanna Atkinson but, in the process, set a new personal best and Welsh record. Bethan's time was 22:06.46 behind Atkinson's 22:03.55.

Elsewhere, Brett Morse duly won the discus title but is still short of the qualifying distance of 65m to make the Great Britain team for the World Championships in Beijing later this year. He has until 26th July to achieve the mark.

Welsh Champions Monday 29 June 2015

James Griffirh Sam Gordon Kristian Jones 2015

The Welsh Athletics championships, held at Cardiff International Sports Stadium, saw a flood of Cardiff AAC medallists as well as numerous personal best performances and another club record - for 14 year old Megan Hodgson who cleared 3.15m to win the under 17 girls' pole vault gold medal and to go second on the latest under 15 UK rankings.

Tough for YDL team Monday 29 June 2015


With the Welsh championships on the same weekend, it was always going to be difficult to get a strong team out for the third round of the UK Youth Development League (upper age group), held in Cheltenham yesterday, Sunday 28th June. And so it proved, with both Cardiff and Swansea suffering accordingly.

Cardiff finished in fifth place, of the six competing clubs, with Swansea in sixth. Cardiff now lies in fourth position overall and a good performance in the final match of the season should secure the club's place in this division for another year.

On to the final? Wednesday 24 June 2015

Despite last minute changes, Cardiff's UK Youth Development League team (lower age group) produced a magnificent performance in Bristol on Sunday last, 21st June, to win the match and go to the top of the division rankings. Another win in the next round will secure the team's position in the national final.

These young athletes showed a maturity in their performances that is a credit to themselves, their parents, coaches, team managers and the club.
