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.

Due to the recent wet conditions, alternative parking arrangements have been put in place for the Welsh Cross Country Championships at Dinefwr on Saturday 15th February.

It is not possible to park athletes/spectators vehicles at the Newton House car park so instead an arrangement has been made to use the hard standings at the nearby Home Farm. There will be a regular shuttle bus service which will operate throughout the day.

It is also possible to walk to the start / finish area which is approximately 800 metres from Home Farm.

Club successes in XC Tuesday 4 February 2014

Rosa Yates (319) and Kate Seary WXCCH2012

Cardiff AAC athletes were to the fore at the Welsh Schools' national cross country championships held in Brecon on Saturday last, 1st February.

The conditions were very poor with the ground heavy after days of rain and biting wind and rain for most of the races including occasional hail.

Braving these conditions to win gold medals were Jake Heyward (middle boys), Daniel John (year 7 boys) and Rebecca Evans (senior girls).

Round up Tuesday 4 February 2014

David Omoregie

It has been a busy week in athletics with athletes off to Austria as well as the final indoor Grand Prix in Cardiff and the schools' cross country championships in Brecon.

Austria was a happy hunting ground with Cardiff athletes returning with several personal best performances. At the Vienna Indoor Classic on 28th January, Tom Marshall continued his good form with an indoor PB of 3:43.11 for 1500m while sprinter Dewi Hammond set his all-time best of 6.85 for 60m and Carl Hill ran an indoor PB of 1:51.67 for 800m. Not to be left out, Ffion Price set a season's best for 1500m.

There will be individual and team championship medals and Cardiff AAC has the talented athletes to win plenty of these as we have strong teams if everyone competes. We can even win medals with our A, B and C teams.

The championships will be held in Dinefwr Park, Llandeilo (satnav SA19 1RT) and the first event will be at 10.30am.

Alice off to Glasgow Saturday 1 February 2014

Alice Nottingham 2014

Cardiff's Alice Nottingham received a very important email last week - confirmation that she had been selected as a volunteer (they will be called "Clyde-siders") at this year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Hurdler Alice (17), who is a student at Stanwell School in Penarth, was one of 50,000 (yes, 50,000) who applied a year ago for places as volunteers. And, naturally, she said that her preferred sport would be athletics.

By last September, the applications had been reduced by a half and 25,000 applicants travelled to Glasgow (at their own expense) to be interviewed. Alice obviously gave a good interview and is one of the 5,000 finally selected - and she will be helping at the athletics stadium; her dream come true.
