Welsh Champions Monday 29 June 2015

James Griffirh Sam Gordon Kristian Jones 2015

The Welsh Athletics championships, held at Cardiff International Sports Stadium, saw a flood of Cardiff AAC medallists as well as numerous personal best performances and another club record - for 14 year old Megan Hodgson who cleared 3.15m to win the under 17 girls' pole vault gold medal and to go second on the latest under 15 UK rankings.

The senior men's 100m final saw seven of the eight qualified finalists from Cardiff AAC with last year's silver medallist Sam Gordon taking the gold from James Griffiths and Kristian Jones. 2014 champion Dewi Hammond was forced to withdraw from the final with a slight injury.

Tough for YDL team Monday 29 June 2015


With the Welsh championships on the same weekend, it was always going to be difficult to get a strong team out for the third round of the UK Youth Development League (upper age group), held in Cheltenham yesterday, Sunday 28th June. And so it proved, with both Cardiff and Swansea suffering accordingly.

Cardiff finished in fifth place, of the six competing clubs, with Swansea in sixth. Cardiff now lies in fourth position overall and a good performance in the final match of the season should secure the club's place in this division for another year.

On to the final? Wednesday 24 June 2015

Despite last minute changes, Cardiff's UK Youth Development League team (lower age group) produced a magnificent performance in Bristol on Sunday last, 21st June, to win the match and go to the top of the division rankings. Another win in the next round will secure the team's position in the national final.

These young athletes showed a maturity in their performances that is a credit to themselves, their parents, coaches, team managers and the club. 

Golds for Bethan & David Tuesday 23 June 2015

Bethan Davies

Cardiff's Bethan Davies and David Omoregie won gold medals at the Under 23/20 trials and championships in Bedford on Saturday and Sunday last 20/21 June.

David took victory in the 110 m hurdles and with it an automatic Great Britain selection for the European Under 23 championships in Tallinn, Estonia, in July.

Bethan's event, the 20k walk, was actually the trial for the senior World Championships in China. Her winning time was a new Welsh and club record but fell short of the automatic qualifying time for the GB team.

Muti multi-event medals Monday 22 June 2015

Thomas Britt 2015

Cardiff's multi-event athletes were in Swansea on Saturday last, 20th June, for the Welsh Athletics and Welsh Schools combined multi-event championships and won medals in all age groups except under 13 boys.

All-rounder Thomas Britt leapt to fourth place on the UK under 15 boys' pentathlon rankings with a personal best score of 2552 points, which included event best performances in the shot put, long jump and 800m. Lauren Evans set a personal best otdoor pentathlon score of 3126 points in winning the under 17 girls' title.

Champion & Club Record Monday 15 June 2015

Rhianwedd Price USA 2015

Cardiff's Rhianwedd Price produced a brilliant finish to win the American NCAA championship 1500m on Saturday last, 13th June, in Eugene, Oregon.

Her time of 4:09.56 was a personal best, improved her own club record and confirmed her in third place on the latest UK rankings.

Clearly in excellent form, Rhianwedd is now set to make her GB debut in next weekend's European Team Championships in Russia.

Why not become an official? Sunday 14 June 2015

Becoming an official in athletics is not difficult and, by going through a simple course, anyone can achieve the basic qualification.

If you are interested in getting involved, Welsh Athletics organises courses and the next one will be in Swansea on 1st July. This course provides a Level 1 Assistant qualification and covers all the disciplines of the sport, both track and field events. It is an ideal introduction, especially for parents of young athletes who could then help at events where their children are competing.

Congratulations Barrie Owen Saturday 13 June 2015

Many congratulations, Barrie.

What's going on? Wednesday 10 June 2015


Most people have now heard that changes are being planned for Cardiff International Sports Stadium – but what are they really - not just the rumours?

Here are the facts:

The stadium is owned by Cardiff Council which, in order to save money and avoid possible closure, has agreed to transfer the long-term management to a partnership that has been created between Cardiff and Vale College and House of Sport.
