Jake Heyward 2015

With the annual presentation evening taking place tomorrow, it is a good time to look back over the track and field season.

2016 was a very good year for Cardiff AAC with many successes for both teams and individuals.

The highlight was Jake Heyward winning the European Under 18 championship 1500m gold medal (hopefully the first of many) but let's not forget Bethan Davies who dominated British women's walking and was unlucky not to have been selected for the Olympic Games in Rio.

Don't forget Tuesday 15 November 2016

Cardiff's Olympic and Paralympic athletes will be there to present awards so you can have your photograph taken with Aled Davies, Steve Morris, Kevin Seaward and Charlotte Wingfield.

It is always a great evening so make sure you are there.

Following an assured performance, 25-year-old Mike commented: "That was really tough tonight but I'm happy with my run and delighted that we are coming home with a silver medal."
