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.

The new format Welsh League concluded in Colwyn Bay on Sunday last, 4th August, and Cardiff AAC topped the men's and overall tables with Cardiff's women second.

Cardiff's "team" consisted of James Thie, Alex Donald and Sue Hooper; James contesting the 100m, 200m and 400m whilst Alex took part in the 3000m and javelin (!) and Sue the 200m and 400m.

Cardiff's senior men's team clinched promotion back to the Premier Division of the British Athletics League in Liverpool yesterday, 3rd August.

With promotion already assured and despite having only one winner (Carl Hill in the 800m A race), the all-round team performance was sufficient to gain fourth place on the day and second over the four match series. The day finished on a high note with Cardiff winning both the 4x100m and 4x400m relays.

Games record for Harry Sunday 4 August 2013

Harry Hillman and Ryan James

Cardiff's Harry Hillman (14, pictured with Ryan James) ran brilliantly to win the under 16 boys' 100m hurdles in a Games record time of 13.65 seconds at the Celtic Games held yesterday (3rd August) in Colwyn Bay. Versatile Harry's performance was particulary good as it was achieved into a -1.3 m/s headwind.

In generally blustery conditions other Cardiff AAC winners for Wales were Ryan Lee (under 18 400m in 48.36) and Kristian Jones who was deprived of a big personal best 10.97 in the under 16 boys' 100m by a +2.4 m/s following wind.

Cardiff's International winners Thursday 1 August 2013

Mica Moore

Numerous Cardiff athletes took part in the Welsh Athletics International at the Cardiff International Sports Stadium last night, 31 July.


One of the best performances of the evening was Mica Moore's determined run to win the senior women's 100m, edging into second place Wales' Commonwealth Games representative Elaine O'Neill.


In the Ann Hill memorial one mile, Tom Marshall was a close second, narrowly missing the four minute barrier in a personal best (outdoor) time of 4:01.04 (he has a slightly faster indoor time).

David Callan

Despite some valiant performances on their home track yesterday, 29th July, Cardiff's National Youth Development League (under 20 and under 17) team finished in fifth place. Along with Cheltenham & County Harriers, Cardiff will hope to regain its place in the Midlands Premier 1 division next year.

Normal summer weather conditions returned with several torrential downpours interspersed with warm sunshine and blustery wind.

Cardiff produced numerous good performances and event winners but could not overcome the big gaps in the team.
