Serita improving Thursday 3 November 2011

Serita Shone

Former Cardiff athlete Serita Shone, who was involved in a serious bobsleigh crash a week ago, is showing signs of improvement although it is likely to be a long and slow process. Serita competed for Cardiff's UK Women's League team as a higher performance athlete and was a heptathlete before switching to the bobsleigh. She was a poplular and versatile member of the team and we wish her well.

False start rule vindicated Monday 24 October 2011

Usain Bolt false start

It is most unlikely that the IAAF will change the false start rule despite the controversy over Usain Bolt's disqualification in Daegu. This is because the number of false starts at the 2011 IAAF World Championships in Daegu, Korea (27 Aug to 4 Sep) declined dramatically when compared to the average for the three global championships that took place immediately before the introduction of the current rule.

Good start in Gwent League Tuesday 11 October 2011

Andrew Hunt

There was a good turnout of Cardiff athletes in the first of the season's Gwent Cross Country League, held on Sunday last, 9th October, at Bridgend. In generally dry but drizzly and muddy conditions, Cardiff vests were to the fore in all the races, with former club captain Debbie Rees taking second place in the senior ladies' race. Charlotte Artur, wearing her UWIC vest, was third and it was good to see Gwenno Brown (representing Bristol University) seventh. In the senior men's race, Andrew Hunt (pictured) was the first Cardiff athlete to finish, in fifth place, with Alex Hains close behind in eighth. Joe Thomas, making a rare foray over the country, was 23rd.
