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


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


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.

Young athletes march on Tuesday 26 June 2012

Welsh Jnr Lg 2009

Cardiff's team in the Welsh under 15 league again dominated in the second round match held in Newport on Saturday last 23 June. Cardiff piled up a points total of 1167 against second placed Newport AC's 709 thanks to 38 individual event winners (including a triple win for Ryan Grimwade) and other high scoring team members.

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.
