Holding their own Tuesday 24 June 2014


Cardiff's National Youth Development League (lower age group) team was involved in an extremely close third round competition at Solihull on Sunday last 22nd June. With only 7.5 points covering second to fourth places, Cardiff finished fourth with 497 behind Birchfield (504.5) and Rugby & Northants (499).

With one round left, Cardiff is lying in overall third place with equal league points with Birchfield but having scored more match points.

On top of the world Monday 23 June 2014

David Omoregie 2014

Cardiff athletes took on the best in Britain at the weekend's England under 20 and under 23 championships in Bedford.

The star of the show was David Omoregie's world leading win in the 110m hurdles. His time of 13.17 (against the wind) takes him to the top of the world rankings as well as being a European, British, Welsh and club record.

Jac Palmer once again improved his own Welsh and club records in the under 20 men's hammer with a throw of 67.23m, which earned him the silver medal.

Relays championships Thursday 19 June 2014

GB team place for Ciaran Tuesday 17 June 2014

Ciaran Lewis 2014

Cardiff’s Ciaran Lewis made a return trip to the Lake District on Saturday last, 14th June, to take part in the UK trials for the European Mountain Running championships and was rewarded with selection for the Great Britain junior team.

The European championships take place in Gap, France, on 12th July and the junior race is over an 8.1k mountain course.

Ciaran (17) qualified by placing fourth in the trial and is the youngest in the British team, having two more years in the under 20 age group.

Rhys goes top Monday 16 June 2014

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's Rhys Williams showed a welcome return to form with a 48.95 400m hurdles in Geneva on Saturday, 14th June, that takes him to the top of the UK rankings.

After being stuck around 50 seconds in his first few races and then false starting in Oslo mid-week, Rhys needed to produce his training form in a race and this he has now done, with a time that is only just outside his personal best of 48.84. In a close race, Rhys was pushed into second place by Thomas Barr of Ireland, who set a national record in the process.

Wrexham medals for Cardiff Monday 16 June 2014

Jake Heyward 2014

A contingent of Cardiff athletes made its way to Wrexham on Saturday last, 14th June, for the Welsh under 20 and under 17 championships and returned with 32 medals between them.

Double winners were Jake Heyward (800m & 1500m), Ryan Grimwade (high jump & pole vault) and Anax Da Silva (100m & 200m) while Jac Palmer broke his own under 20 club record with 65.10m to win the hammer title.

Special talents Wednesday 11 June 2014

School choir 2014

Did you know that five of Cardiff's young athletes are the best in Britain - not in athletics, though, but in singing.

Yes, Cesia Lewis, Sara Jones, Carwyn Hastings, Megan Hastings and Luned Jones are all members of the Ysgol Iolo Morgannwg, Cowbridge, school choir that won this year's BBC Songs of Praise junior choir of the year competition.

Ladies head for the top Sunday 8 June 2014

UKWAL June 2014

Cardiff's UK Women's Athletic League team triumphed today in their second round match at Newham in London, winning their match convincingly from second placed Bristol & West with home team Newham & Essex Beagles pushed into third place.

After placing third in the first round match in Cardiff on 10th May, Cardiff is now second overall; a similar strong performance in the third and final match in Portsmouth on 6th July would clinch promotion and vindicate team manager Sharon Heveran's vow to get the team back up "where they deserve to be".

Juniors do well Sunday 8 June 2014
