Ryan James

In an action packed day at the NIAC yesterday, 25th January, Cardiff athletes accumulated an impressive medal count at the Welsh Athletics indoor championships.

The under 17 men's 800m saw a Cardiff clean sweep with Hassan Abdi taking the gold medal ahead of Joseph Adler (silver) and Alex Love (bronze).

An exciting senior women's 60m final saw Mica Moore (silver medal) edge out Commonwealth Games hopeful Elaine O'Neill in a personal best time of 7.54 seconds. The senior men's final, likewise, produced a personal best 6.97 for silver medallist Gareth Hopkins.

Indoor Championships Friday 24 January 2014


This weekend, the National Indoor Athletic Centre in Cardiff will be the scene of the Welsh Indoor Championships for the under 13, under 17 and Senior age groups. The under 15 and under 20 800m and 1500m championships will be included.

The entries show a strong presence of Cardiff AAC athletes although there could, perhaps, have been more in the under 13 age group (why aren't they there?).

Harry leads medal haul Monday 6 January 2014

Harry was one of several Cardiff multi medallists in all age groups and it was encouraging to see so many athletes trying several events. James Vincent won both the under 15 boys' 800m and high jump whilst there was a clean sweep of medals in the under 13 boys' long jump where Jonathan Gibson, Sam Woods and Harri Howkins won gold, silver and bronze repectively.

Plenty of Cardiff AAC athletes made the trip to Mountain Ash on New Year's Eve for the annual Nos Galan races; and with success.

Last year's elite winner, Ieuan Thomas, was pushed into second place this time by Bristol's Stephen Mitchell but Ben Vincent and Naomi Reid chalked up wins in the 8/9 and 12/13 age groups repectively.
