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).

Juniors slip to Premier 2 Friday 26 July 2013

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.
