Despite generally miserable conditions for athletics, Cardiff's young athletes finished their season with a flourish at the final of the Welsh Athletics under 15 league, held today, 15th September, at Penlan athletic track in Brecon.

After a ding dong battle all day, Cardiff finished in an excellent second place to winners Swansea Harriers, with Cardiff Archers third.

Cardiff's Welsh Athletics Under 15 League team completed the qualifying series at Cwmbran yesterday, 18th August, and safely secured a place in the all Welsh final to be held in Brecon on 15th September.

A team that was heavily depleted, especially in the under 11 age group, through holidays finished in second place but included a number of excellent performances including Sarah Omoregie's hat trick of wins in the under 15 girls' 100m, 75m hurdles and shot put. Double winners were James Kennett, Jay Morse and Thomas Hanson.

Brave Rhys goes out Tuesday 13 August 2013

Rhys Williams OG 2012

A bitterly disappointed Cardiff's Rhys Williams ended his World Championships 400m hurdles campaign today, finishing fourth in his semi-final and missing out on a place in the final.

Drawn in the unfavourable lane eight and facing two of the favourites for the gold medal, Rhys ran a brave race but finished  in fourth place.

This was Rhys's third appearance at an IAAF World Championships, having competed in 2005 in Helsinki and 2009 in Berlin and the current European Champion is in the form of his life having improved his personal best, and club record, time to 48.84 seconds.

Cardiff's UK Women's Athletic League team produced a much improved performance in the third and final match of the series on Sunday last, 4th August, at Kingston but narrowly failed to maintain its place in Division one.

After arriving late at the stadium because of extensive road closures in the area, the team achieved its best result of the season, finishing in fifth place on the day and only one point behind sixth placed Wigan and District H overall.
