Cosmeston win for Cardiff Friday 13 July 2012

Cosmeston relay team 2012

Cardiff AAC Men's team successfully defended their title at the popular Cosmeston Relays on Wednesday evening, 11th July. Jon Peters took Cardiff into an early lead by winning the first stage and in doing so won the Peter Hains Trophy, which is awarded to the winner of the first stage each year. This trophy is given in memory of Alex Hains' dad who organised the relays for many years. Chris Moss increased the club's lead on stage two before handing over to Elsidig Ibrahim who maintained our substantial lead. Carwyn Jones led the team home running narrowly outside of his own lap course record set last year but posting the fastest time of the night.

Sixth Paralympics for Tracey Wednesday 11 July 2012

Tracey Hinton

Cardiff's Tracey Hinton was yesterday named in the Great Britain team for the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. For Tracey, who lost her sight at age 4, this will be her sixth Paralympic Games, having taken part in every edition since 1992. She is a multi medallist, having won silver in the 200m and 400m as well as bronze in the 100m in 1992; silver in the 800m and bronze in the 200m and 400m in 2000. Tracey has also won medals in the International Paralympic Committee World Championships and, only last month (June), won gold in both the 100m and 200m at the IPC European Championships in Holland.

Triple success for Elliot Tuesday 10 July 2012

Elliot Slade

On 13th June, Cardiff's Elliot Slade ran a personal best 800m and broke the 1:50.00 barrier with a fine 1:49.85 which placed him fifth in this season's UK under 20 rankings (he is still only 17). On Saturday last, July 7th, Elliot probably exceeded his own expectations and gained a triple success at the Aviva Welsh Schools National track & field championships in Brecon, winning his speciality 800m in a record time and receiving two pretigious awards..

Cardiff's senior men's team made the long journey to Gateshead for the second round of this year's British League National Division 1 campaign, having come a fine second in the opening match. This time, the team found itself in a tight contest with only ten points covering fourth to sixth places and slipped to sixth place on the day, behind local club Gateshead who put up a strong performance, having come last in the first round.

Gareth in team Friday 6 July 2012

Gareth Warburton

Cardiff's Gareth Warburton has been added to the Great Britain olympic team after lodging a successful appeal against his omission. He said "I am absolutely delighted to have been selected to Team GB to represent my country at our home Olympic Games. This is an incredible opportunity for me and I intend to make the most of it. I am joining a fantastic team of athletes and we're all focused on doing Britain proud this summer." Gareth's was the only succesful appeal of the eleven heard by the appeals panel.

Young Athletes through to final Thursday 5 July 2012

CISS

Cardiff's National Young Athletes' League team has qualified for the Midlands area final to be held in Stoke on Sunday 29 July. This reward follows the team's steady improvement over the season's three fixtures, culminating in an excellent second place in the home fixture held in Cardiff on 17th June. Track and Field chairman Andrew Seary is delighted with this outcome and is hoping to send a strong team to the final.

Rhys in as Gareth disappointed Wednesday 4 July 2012

Rhys Williams Barcelona 2010

As expected after his gold medal winning performance in Helsinki, Cardiff's Rhys Williams' olympic team place was confirmed yesterday by UK Athletics. He takes his place alongside Christian Malcolm who goes to his fourth Olympic Games and has been selected for the 200m as well as the 4x100m relay. Somewhat surprisingly, Gareth Warburton was not amongst those announced yesterday despite being one of only three British athletes to have secured the A standard qualifying time. He may have paid the price for seeking a second A time in round one of the European Championships (and narrowly failing) and then missing out on a place in the final. In the circumstances he can feel somewhat aggrieved at his omission.

All round ability Tuesday 3 July 2012

Tom Trotman

Cardiff's athletes demonstrated their all round talents at the Welsh Athletics and Welsh Schools combined events championships held in Newport on Saturday last, 30th June. Pride of place must go to the under 13 girls Welsh Championship where Lauren Evans, Amy Ahia and Amber Harding took the first three places and all the medals. Tom Trotman (pictured) won the under 15 boys' championship with a score of 2,608 points, including a 1.80m high jump. Harry Hillman took the silver medal.

Rhys is Euro Champion Friday 29 June 2012

Rhys Williams Euro gold 2012

Cardiff's Rhys Williams crowned what was probably the best series of races he has put together by running a flawless final to win the European Championships 400m hurdles title in Helsinki today, taking the title won by Dai Greene in Barcelona two years ago. His winning time of 49.33 is a season's best and clinches his place in the Great Britain Olympic team, a fantastic come-back after the devastation of falling in the UK trials last weekend.

NJL team off to a start Thursday 28 June 2012

CISS

After the disappointment of having its first round match cancelled because of severe weather, Cardiff's National Junior League team got to compete at Yate last Sunday, 24th June, and, despite some gaps in the team, performed creditably. This time the weather was kinder although the wind was blustery on occasions.
