Cardiff AAC athletes collected no less than sixty one medals at the 66th Welsh Schools' athletics championships held at Cardiff International Sports Stadium on Saturday last, 6th July.

Athletes were there representing their school districts and, with almost perfect weather, with very little breeze, numerous personal bests were achieved.

Cardiff's UK Women's League team travelled to Wigan yesterday, Sunday 7th July, for the second round of this year's series.

With excellent weather, the team had mixed fortunes; outstanding on the track with five wins but sadly missing in the field events where only Sarah Benson collected a first place, in the shot put A.

As a result the team finished in seventh place and, with only one match to go, needs a miracle to retain a place in the division. 

Senior men head for the top Sunday 7 July 2013

A brilliant team effort saw Cardiff's British Athletics League team secure second place in the third round match at Windsor yesterday.

With only one round to go, Cardiff is now seven league points clear of third placed Windsor Slough & Eton and only a disaster in the final match at Liverpool on 3rd August can stand in the way of promotion to the premier division (the elite of British club athletics).

Good Luck messages Friday 5 July 2013

This weekend will be extremely busy for Cardiff athletes with at least three very important competitions taking place.

At Cardiff International Sports Stadium there will be the Welsh Schools championships, with numerous Cardiff members representing their regions and in search of good performances and medals.

The senior men's British Athletics League travels to Windsor where hopes of promotion to the Premier division could depend on a solid performance in this the third of this season's four rounds.

The senior women's UK Women's League team have a longer journey ahead of them as they travel to Wigan; a stronger team result will be needed to maintain the team's position in division one.

Good luck to all our athletes.

Tasia Stephens

On a cool and windy evening last night, 3rd July, fourteen throwers assembled to take part in the John Walters Memorial Throws Meeting. This meeting remembers John, who was a  leading Welsh  thrower for over thirty years and was still good enough to be a member of Cardiff's BAL team at the age of 60.


Competitions were held in Shot Put, Discus, Hammer and Javelin for senior and other athletes who had achieved minimum standards.

Cardiff's National Youth Development League (Under 20/Under17) team performed valiantly in the third round match in Cheltenham on Sunday last, 30th June and, once again, came fifth in the final result.

Cardiff produced 14 individual winners as well as taking the under 17 men's 4x100m relay and the under 17 women's 4x300m.

More medals on Day 2 Monday 1 July 2013

Rhys Knapman 11 Gareth Hopkins 9

Cardiff athletes picked up more medals on the second day of the 2013 Welsh championships yesterday.

The senior men's 200m final saw club captain Rhys Knapman just beat team mate Gareth Hopkins to the line in a close fought contest (pictured as they reach for the finish).

Fine run by Rhys Sunday 30 June 2013

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's Rhys Williams produced one of the finest runs of his career today at the IAAF Diamond League event at Birmingham's Alexander stadium.

European Champion Rhys produced a storming run in the unfavourable lane seven to take second place in a world class 400m hurdles race behind 2012 Olympic bronze medallist Javier Culson.

Rhys's time of 48.93 is his second fastest ever but it was the nature of the performance that was more impressive than the time.

Welsh rival and reigning world champion Dai Greene was fifth.

Paul Bennett

The first day of the 2013 Welsh Athletics championships was held today at Cardiff International Sports Stadium in thankfully warm sunshine, albeit with a tricky wind that did not help the sprinters.

Cardiff athletes turned out in numbers and won 31 medals, 12 of which were gold.

One of the best performances came from Paul Bennett (pictured winning his event) who set a new personal best of 47.92 in winning the senior men's 400m. Not to be out done, Emma Pullen also set a new personal best in the senior women's 400m with a championship best time of 52.92. Consistent Harry Hillman also set new championship and personal figures, winning the under 15 boys 80m hurdles in 11.27.
