Brilliant day for Cardiff men Sunday 11 May 2014

Tim Fry and David Omoregie 2014

Cardiff's senior men's and women's teams excelled themselves at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium yesterday where, in difiicult weather conditions (a strong and gusty wind and occasional rain), the men's team came second in the opening round of this year's BAL Premiership Division and the women's team was third in their UK Women's Athletic League Division 2 match.

A separate report will follow on the women's team.

In a team competition, the contribution of every single team member is important as every point counts and it is invidious to highlight individual performances. However, that of David Omoregie stands out as, in his first ever race over the senior 110m hurdles he clocked, into a 2m/sec headwind, an outstanding 13.92 seconds which easily beats the qualifying time (14.62 over the senior hurdles) for the IAAF world junior championships later this year.

Promotion beckoning? Sunday 11 May 2014

Not to be outshone by the men, Cardiff's senior women's team produced an excellent performance yesterday to finish in third place in the first round of this year's UK Women's Athletic League Division 2 contest.

With new team manager Sharon Heveran (herself a former Irish international high jumper - and holder of the club record) bursting with enthusiasm and supported by new ladies' captain Rhiannon Linington-Payne, the team was a mere 14 points behind second place and could easily bid for promotion to Division one (the top two teams are promoted) by the end of the three match series.

Cardiff's senior men's and women's teams start their 2014 campaigns tomorrow at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium when the first rounds of the British Athletics League and UK Women's Athletics League are contested.

The men, in the premier division of the BAL, will be up against the best club teams in Britain and will be looking to consolidate their position at that level. The women, in division two, will be hoping for a good start that could lead to promotion at the end of the season.

Club records at Welsh League Tuesday 6 May 2014

Two new club records were set at the Senior Welsh League and open competition held in Cardiff on Sunday last, 4th May.

Brett Morse, looking for a loosening up competition before competing in the IAAF Diamond League in Doha on Friday, threw the discus a modest (for him) 60.45m to improve his own club record. Meanwhile, Jac Palmer improved his own under 20 hammer record to 64.23m.

Elsewhere, David Omoregie set a legal personal best of 10.87 for the 100m (into a -2m/s wind) and Anax Da Silva also improved his legal best to 10.85.

Cardiff's Welsh Junior League team got off to a good start to the season at Cwmbran last Saturday, 26th April, finishing second overall in the team rankings but with the under 15 boys' and girls' age groups winning strongly.

The event was held in reasonable weather conditions, although with a difficult wind and occasional showers, unlike the West Wales fixture in Carmarthen that had to be abandoned early in the afternoon.

The club's UK Youth Development League (upper age group) team travelled to Stoke on Sunday for the first of this year's series.

With a heavily depleted squad, the team finished sixth and need to produce much stronger teams if is to avoid relegation.

The athetes who travelled performed valiantly but could not make up for the many events where we could not field a competitor.
