In the third match of the year, held in Newport yesterday, Saturday 9th July, Cardiff's Welsh Under 15 League team proved to be the club's most successful this year. The team has won each of its three outings and, with one match to go, is looking to romp away with the overall league title and qualify for the Cup Final and another chance to overturn traditional rivals Carmarthen Harriers. Star of the day was Harry Hillman (pictured) who won three events, two in League under 13 records and one of which (75m Hurdles) was also a Welsh age group record.

Elliot Slade

Cardiff's Elliot Slade has been rewarded for his fine progress this year with selection for the Great Britain team to take part in the IAAF World Youth Championships to be held in Lille, France, from 6th to 10th July. Elliot is ranked Britain's number one under 17 800m runner with a best time of 1:51.82 but will find the competition in Lille very hot indeed as half a dozen or more Africans of the same age have run under 1:50.00.

Medals in Welsh Champs Monday 20 June 2011

The 2011 Welsh Championships were held over last weekend, 18/19 June at a blustery Cardiff International Sports Stadium and Cardiff athletes were prominent throughout. A clash of dates with the European Team Championships taking place in Stockholm meant that the championships were deprived of its current four top international stars - Dai Greene, Christian Malcolm, Gareth Warburton and Brett Morse - who were all on duty for the Great Britain team. Highlights of the first day included a Cardiff 1,2,3 in the men's 400m, with 800m specialist Joe Thomas taking the gold in a respectable 47.25 and Tom Miller (48.65) and Glyn Hawkes(49.29) having a close battle for the other medals.
