Cardiff Cross Challenge Thursday 22 January 2015


With plenty of Cardiff athletes entered, this year's British Athletics Cardiff Cross Challenge, held last Sunday 18th January and now in its 18th year, lived up to its reputation as a quality event.

With strong fields in all age groups, the best Cardiff performances came from Jonathan Hopkins (4th in the senior men's race), Rhys Jones (4th in the under 15 boys) and Abi Fisher (also 4th in the under 15 girls).

GB senior debut for David Wednesday 21 January 2015

David Omoregie 2014

Cardiff's and Wales' latest hurdles star David Omoregie will represent the Great Britain senior team for the first time at the Sainsbury’s Glasgow International Match on Saturday next, 24 January.

David (who only turned 19 in November) won bronze at last year's World Junior Championships in America and is currently leading the UK indoor senior rankings for 60m hurdles with the 7.87 seconds he recorded last weekend in Cardiff.

Welcome back Monday 19 January 2015

Rhys Williams and Gareth Warburtonx

It's been the longest and hardest six months of their lives but now it is over and they can get back to normal.

Cardiff's international athletes Gareth Warburton and Rhys Williams were shocked when routine doping control samples given last summer turned out to contain minute quantities of banned substances. They had both been tested many times before and had always been clear.

Now, an enquiry panel has ruled that neither athlete took the substances deliberately but that they had been in contaminated food supplements of the kinds that many athletes take regularly without any problems. They were unlucky and were not cheats.

Bryony helps out Friday 16 January 2015

 Bryone Raine

Cardiff's club pole vault record holder Bryony Raine has joined a scheme promoted by Sport Wales to help schoolchildren to maximise their physical and all round development.

The idea of the scheme, called "Passing the Baton", is that experienced sportsmen and women will visit schools to talk to to pupils about their own backgrounds and how physical fitness can contribute to improved learning and life skills.

Curtis in GB team Wednesday 14 January 2015

Curtis Mathews 2014

Cardiff's Curtis Matthew has been included in a senior men's team of four to represent Great Britain in the Combined Events International Indoor Match Apeldoorn, Netherlands over the weekend of the 24-25 January.

Curtis, who was one of the Welsh successes at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, will be joined by fellow Welshman Ben Gregory, who won the UK title in Sheffield last weekend. Curtis gave the Sheffield event a miss.

World record and champions Monday 12 January 2015

Aled Davies

Cardiff athletes marked up some excellent new year performances at yesterday's indoor Grand Prix and Welsh 3000m championships, held in the NIAC, Cardiff.

The outstanding performance of the day was paralympian Aled Sion Davies' world indoor record of 15.53m in the category F42 shot put.

David Omoregie went to the top of the 2015 UK indoor rankings for the 60m hurdles with 7.87seconds and Jessica Wadey (U15 girls) and Jack Gooch (U20 men) became Welsh indoor champions over 3000m.

Harry Hillman - Olympic Champion Thursday 8 January 2015

Harry Hillman USA

No, it's not our Harry Hillman (at least, not yet) - who is still recovering from a bad fall (get back soon Harry) - but an American athlete who won three gold medals in the 1904 Olympic Games in St Louis, Missouri, USA.

He went on to compete in the 1906 Games in Athens and those in London in 1908.

Harry was quite an athlete and his medals in 1904 were won, all in Olympic record times, in the 200m, 400m and 400m hurdles.

He was also an exponent of the three legged race and set a world record for the 100yards.

Owen makes his name Tuesday 6 January 2015

Owen Haswell 2014

Cardiff AAC athlete Owen Haswell, a medical student currently at Bangor University, has made a name for himself by having a research paper published in The Lancet, the world-renowned journal of the medical profession which usually includes only work by leading medical experts.


Owen had researched the impact of the change from summer to winter time on the levels of physical activity carried out and discovered that there was a big drop once the clocks went back in October.

Indoors - Days 1&2 Monday 5 January 2015


After finishing 2014 on a high note at the Nos Galan races, Cardiff AAC athletes got 2015 off to a great start at the South and East Wales indoor championships held at the NIAC in Cardiff Saturday and yesterday, 3rd and 4th January.
