A heavily depleted senior men's team contested the fourth and final round of the British Athletics League series in Manchester yesterday but, despite the valiant efforts of those who were there, could not match the opposition and ended the match in eighth place.

In a fine example of team spirit, Brett Morse was Cardiff's only individual event winner, taking the discus with 61.38m, but also stepping in to contest both the shot put and hammer events.

Fifth for Brett Friday 1 August 2014

Cardiff's Brett Morse just missed out on a medal, finishing in fifth place at the Commonwealth Games yesterday, 31st July.

Competing in awful conditions (cold with continuous heavy rain), Brett was in fourth place after four rounds with a throw of 60.48m but slipped to fifth at the end.

Brett will be disappointed not to have clinched a medal but should be satisfied with his performance in the conditions.

Tribute to Christian Thursday 17 July 2014

 Christian Malcolm

Cardiff’s Christian Malcolm finally hung up his spikes at the Welsh Athletics International on Wednesday evening, 15th July, running his favourite first leg of the Welsh team’s 4 x 100m relay.

His final appearance, at the Cardiff International Stadium, was greeted warmly by appreciative spectators and fellow athletes and his speech afterwards was received with a prolonged applause.

Christian has certainly been Wales most successful ever sprinter and his tally of medals and appearances at major championships speaks for itself.
