A heavily depleted senior men's team contested the fourth and final round of the British Athletics League series in Manchester yesterday but, despite the valiant efforts of those who were there, could not match the opposition and ended the match in eighth place.

In a fine example of team spirit, Brett Morse was Cardiff's only individual event winner, taking the discus with 61.38m, but also stepping in to contest both the shot put and hammer events.

Cardiff athletes returned from Swansea yesterday, 3rd August, with a fine collection of medals from the Welsh under 13 and under 15 championships.

Pride of place went to Kieran Grimwade (14) who took gold in the under 15 hammer and javelin as well as bronze in the pole vault. Issie Tustin won both the 100m and 200m in the under 13 age group whilst Henry Gauntlett set a new championship record in winning the under 13 boys' javelin.

Fifth for Brett Friday 1 August 2014

Cardiff's Brett Morse just missed out on a medal, finishing in fifth place at the Commonwealth Games yesterday, 31st July.

Competing in awful conditions (cold with continuous heavy rain), Brett was in fourth place after four rounds with a throw of 60.48m but slipped to fifth at the end.

Brett will be disappointed not to have clinched a medal but should be satisfied with his performance in the conditions.
