Inter-Counties cross country Sunday 9 March 2014

Jake Heyward 2014

A good number of Cardiff athletes travelled to Birmingham yesterday, 8th March, to test themselves against the best of Britain in the national inter-counties cross country championships.

Although the ground conditions were muddy and heavy going, the weather was dry but chilly.

The best performance of the day by a Cardiff athlete was Jake Heyward's excellent 10th place (out of 280 finishers) in the under 15 boys' race.

David Omoregie 2014 Euro record

David Omoregie's run of fine form continued in Sheffield at the England championships over the weekend when he smashed his previous best to set British and European under 20 records for the 60m hurdles.

In both the heats and final of his event, he clocked identical times - 7.62 - to eliminate the previous best of 7.65 set by James Gladman a year ago.

Perhaps he could have gone even faster if he had tied his shoelaces (see picture)!

With the final Gwent League race of this season taking place on Saturday, we shall move on to road running - the Welsh Road Relays Championships are being held in Ynysangharad Park, Pontypridd on Sunday 16th March.

Cardff teams traditionally do well in these relays so we want 2014 to be another successful year.

There are races for all ages from primary school athletes to masters athletes and, if you wish to take part, please get in touch by Sunday next, 2nd March at the latest.

Weekend successes Wednesday 26 February 2014

Mica Moore

Cardiff athletes were competing with success over last weekend, at the British Universities indoor championships in Sheffield and the Armagh international road races in Northern Ireland.

In Sheffield, James Thie, representing Cardiff Metropolitan University, took the 1500m title, with Matthew Edwards sixth in the final. Mica Moore was second in the 60m and fourth in the 200m while Dewi Hammond was third in the 60m.

Representing Loughborough, David Guest was second in the long jump with a leap of 7.22m and fourth in the shot put with 14.27m.

Coaches needed Wednesday 19 February 2014

Following a thorough review, the club is set to launch an exciting new initiative for its younger members. The popular Track Rats group, which was created by senior coach Dave Hawthorn more than 10 years ago, will be re-named the Cardiff Athletics Academy. The Academy will cater for the under-11 and under-13 age groups and will offer the best possible introduction to athletics. 

In order to meet an expected increase in Academy members we are looking to recruit additional coaches. Academy coaches will be paid and if you are interested, please contact club secretary Ann Cooper (acooper.caac@sky.com) who will give you further information.

A day after the Welsh cross country championships, the action switched indoors to the final phase of the Welsh indoor championships; those for the under 20 and under 15 age groups.

 

Once again, Cardiff athletes won plenty of medals with James Vincent showing particular versatility; following up his earlier titles over 800m and 1500m with a third title, this time in the high jump.

Cardiff dominate champs Saturday 15 February 2014

Cardiff athletes turned out in force at today's Welsh Cross Country Championships in Carmarthen, winning individual and team medals in every age category except senior women.

Pride of place goes to the under 13 girls where the first six places were taken by Cardiff athletes and the teams took gold and bronze medals. Team golds were also won by the under 15 boys, under 17 men, under 17/20 women and under 20 men (pictured).

Weather doesn't stop cross Monday 10 February 2014

Blaise Castle XC 2012

Despite awful conditions, the fourth Gwent League fixture of the season went ahead as planned in Brecon on Saturday last, 8th February. Well done to the athletes who braved the weather.

Cardiff's junior athletes produced their usual excellent performances with Rhys Jones (under 15 boys), Ciaran Lewis (under 17 men) and Kiara Frizelle (under 13 girls) winning their races while Emily Chirighin (under 11 girls) and Rosa Yates (under 17 women) all achieved second places.

The senior men finished four runners in the first ten to win the team race.

Brilliant bronze for Omoregie Sunday 9 February 2014

David Omoregie

Cardiff's David Omoregie ran brilliantly at yesterday's British indoor championships in Sheffield to take the bronze medal behind dead-heating Olympic athletes Andy Pozzi and Will Sharman, smashing his personal best over the senior hurdles with a time of 7.78 seconds; a time that moves him up to 6th in the current senior UK rankings.

Despite a less than electric start, David hurdled superbly to snatch a well deserved third place but had an agonisingly long wait for the official verdict as the photo finish judges tried to separate Pozzi and Sharman.
