CAAC logo

Cardiff AAC will be organising a special throws competition on Wednesday, 3rd July, starting at 6.45pm.

The competition is open to seniors, juniors, under 17 and under 15 athletes who have achieved specified minimum standards so the events should be of good quality. Events covered will be Shot Put, Discus, Hammer and Javelin. 

The competition is in memory of John Walters, one of the club's longest serving and most successful athletes who represented Wales and Great Britain on many occasions. He competed regularly for the British League team and, at one point, held the League record for the highest number of appearances by a club athlete across all the divisions of the league. John died a number of years ago.

A much depleted Cardiff UK Women's League team travelled to Southampton on Sunday, 9th June, for the first round of this year's campaign to maintain its place in division one.

The 12 woman team performed heroically but could not overcome the gaps and finished seventh out of eight teams. With two rounds to go, more complete teams should be able to pull themselves out of the relegation zone.
