YDL 2017x

Taking full advantage of a home fixture, Cardiff's YDL (upper age group) team dominated the third round match yesterday, winning by a huge 168 points and leapfrogging Team Avon to take the top spot in the division and a guaranteed entry to the regional final in Yate on 23rd July.

Weekend wonders Monday 26 June 2017

Jake Heyward 2015

While the YDL team was demolishing the opposition in Cardiff, other club members were breaking personal and club records at home and abroad.

Tom Marshall, Jake Heyward, and Charlotte Arter all set personal bests at the BMC Grand Prix in Watford while Kiara Frizelle set a new club standard for the under 17 girls' 1500m, Bethan Davies set new club and Welsh records for 20k walk in Leeds and Tom Britt long jumped a personal best 6.09m in Swansea. 

Club record and title for Jac Tuesday 20 June 2017

Jac Palmer 2017

Cardiff's Jac Palmer hit top form in Bedford on Sunday to take the gold medal in the hammer throw at the England Athletics under 23 championships. Not only was his winning throw of 65.88m a personal best and club senior record, but he pushed into second place Taylor Campbell who is currently leading the under 23 UK rankings. Jac is lying third in the UK.

Also coming home with a gold medal was Jake Heyward who won a tactical race to take the 1500m title and enhance his selection chances for the European Junior championships.The selection qualifying time is 3:45.00 which should be well within Jake's capability in the right race.

Hot stuff Sunday 18 June 2017

Carwyn Jones Stuttgart 2016

On perhaps the hottest day of the summer so far,Cardiff's road runners were on hot form in today's Caerphilly 10k, taking second, third and fourth places in the senior men's open race and first and third in the ladies' race.

With Carwyn Jones second, Dan Nash a close third and James Hunt fourth, this was a good warm up for the trio's half marathon in Stuttgart next weekend.

Cardiff 1-2 Friday 16 June 2017

Tom Marshall

Hot on the heels of their exploits at the Welsh championships last Saturday, Tom Marshall (Welsh silver at 800m) and Rowan Axe (gold at 1500m) travelled to Watford on Wednesday evening, looking for fast times over 1500m. And, wow, did they get them!

Tom won the 1500m A race in a career best time of 3:37.62 with Rowan a close second in a big personal best of 3:38.12. These times take them respectively to third and fifth on the all-time best Welsh lists and to eighth and ninth on the current UK rankings. They are also both within the A standard qualification to be considered for the Welsh team at the Commonwealth Games. 

Open meeting a success Friday 16 June 2017

Open Mtg June 17

Around 130 young athletes, full of enthusiasm, were at the Cardiff AAC stadium last Sunday to take part in the open meeting organised by the Cardiff Academy.

A well chosen series of events occupied a few hours of a pleasant Sunday morning, producing good competition and results.

Bethan walks it Sunday 11 June 2017

Bethan Davies 2015

One of the class acts at yesterday's Welsh Championships, held in Cardiff, was Bethan Davies' victory in the 3000m walk. Having led from the start, GB international Bethan won easily but just missed out on a new Welsh and personal record. Her winning time of 12:26.45 is by far the best time in the UK this year.

On a very successful day for Cardiff AAC, club athletes took medals (usually gold) in nearly all the men's championship events and in many of the women's, with clean sweeps in the men's 100m and the women's high jump.
