Rhys and Gareth in Euro team Monday 25 June 2012

Rhys Williams

Rhys Williams and Gareth Warburton have both been included in the Great Britain team for the European Championships which starts in Helsinki on Wednesday. This gives them both a final chance to convince the selectors to add them to the Olympic team after missing out on automatic qualification at the UK trials over the past weekend. Both Rhys and Gareth have achieved the necessary A standards and convincing performances in Helsinki could see them both added to the team for London.

Christian clinches place Sunday 24 June 2012

 Christian Malcolm

Cardiff's Christian Malcolm clinched his place in the British Olympic team by taking second place in his favourite 200m at today's final session of the UKA olympic trials. The final of the 200m was Christian's fifth race in three days, something he had deliberately chosen to do to replicate the pressure of a major championship. After the race he said that he had felt the strain of so many races and had to use all his experience to pull through to second and a guaranteed place on the team. Christian, who was world junior champion at both 100m and 200m in 1998 has enjoyed an illustrious career in the sport and will be competing in his fourth Olympic Games. Congratulations to Christian.

Gareth through as Rhys falls Saturday 23 June 2012

Gareth Warburton

Cardiff's Gareth Warburton cruised through to tomorrow's final of the 800m at today's UK Olympic trials in Birmingham in a comfortable 1:50.45, winning heat two. On the other hand, Rhys Williams suffered the tragedy of falling after hitting the ninth hurdle in the 400m hurdles final and did not finish. Rhys had been running strongly and was well in contention for one of the three olympic qualifying positions but misjudged the ninth.

Rhys through to final Friday 22 June 2012

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's European and Commonwealth medallist Rhys Williams safely qualified today for the final of the 400m hurdles at this weekend's UKA Olympic trials in Birmingham. Rhys qualified by winning heat 2 in 50.54, the second fastest time, to secure his place, and potentially a good lane, in what will be one of most important races of his career. The final is at 17.13 tomorrow, Saturday - don't miss it. Also comfortably through from heat 8 of the 100m, in 10.48, is popular club stalwart Christian Malcolm. Christian will line up tomorrow in semi final two, with the final later in the day.

Men's team off to a fine start Tuesday 29 May 2012

Joe Maynard

Cardiff's British Athletics League team got off to an excellent start on Sunday last, 27th May, in its bid for promotion back to the premiership division. In conditions that team Manager James Williams decribed as "more fitting for the Caribbean than north London, temperatures in the high twenties, which made life very difficult for all athletes", Cardiff ended the day in third spot. Cardiff's athlete of the match was Joe Maynard (pictured at the regional championships) for his performances in the 800m (which he won) and the 4x400m relay..

Rhys gets Olympic qualifier Monday 28 May 2012

Rhys Williams

Cardiff' European and Commonwealth medallist Rhys Williams took a step nearer his ambition of selection for the London Olympics by running the A qualifying time (49.50) in Oordegem, Belgium yesterday, 27 May. Rhys was timed at 49.45 and jumped to third place on the latest UK rankings, which are headed by fellow Welshman Dai Greene who clocked 48.96 in Morroco, although coming second to Felix Sanchez. Ranked second is Richard Yates (49.39) who just edged out Rhys in the run in in Belgium. Two other British athletes, including Jack Green, have already run sub-50 so the battle for Olympic places is hotting up. We shall keep our fingers crossed for Rhys.

UK WAL team's tricky start. Sunday 27 May 2012

Emma Pullen (1) & Rhiannon Linnington-Payne

Cardiff's UK Women's League team started the 2012 campaign with a home match at the Cardiff International Stadium under a mostly cloudless sky but very hot conditions. Cardiff finished the day in sixth place and, amongst some creditable performances, could produce only four winners. Emma Pullen and Rhiannon Linnington-Payne won the A and B 400m respectively and were jointly presented by club treasurer Graham Webb as Cardiff's athletes of the match.

Clear win for young athletes Saturday 26 May 2012

Harry Hillman

After the first round match of this year's Welsh Under 15 League had been cancelled because of torrential rain, today's match at Aberdare was held in glorius sunshine, albeit there was a strong wind. Cardiff had 34 individual event winners, including a Harry Hillman (pictured) double and the team scored a resounding win, amassing 1089 points against second placed Cwmbran's 678.
