Hoping to emulate the senior men's likely promotion to the premiership, Cardiff's senior women's team missed by an agonising 6.5 points in Manchester on Sunday.

Despite a fine team performance with athletes scoring points in unfamiliar events, a dropped baton in the 4x100m relay saw Cardiff finish second on the day and third over the three rounds; the first two teams are promoted.

Cardiff's British Athletics League team took another step towards promotion to the Premier Division at Bedford yesterday. Cardiff led for most of the day until Sale Harriers Manchester (who slipped from the Premiership last season and would like to get back) took over in the last few events.

Second place yesterday leaves Cardiff three points clear at the top of the division with one round left and the top two clubs at the end of the series gaining promotion.

Cardiff's Bethan Davies took a big chunk off her personal best time to win the 5,000m walk at the British championships and trials today and, in the process, set a new GB National record of 21:21.52. Naturally this is also a club and Welsh best.
