61 medals at championships Monday 8 July 2013

Gwenno Waddington

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.
