And again Wednesday 26 July 2017

Yate July 2017

If the weather was bad in Newport on Saturday, it was even worse in Yate on Sunday for the area final of the UK Youth Development League (upper age group); heavy rain meant the event was abandoned after 47 of the 76 events.

With two teams automatically qualifying for the national final in September, Cardiff wanted to emulated last year's appearance in the final.

Finalists again Tuesday 25 July 2017

Nia Clatworthy 2017

On a typical summer's day (cold, windy and intermittent rain), Cardiff's Welsh Junior League team comfortably qualified for the all-Welsh final, finishing second at Newport on Saturday last.

Cardiff has won the national final for the past two years and will be looking to make it three in a row. The final is in Newport on 6th August.

More gold for Aled Monday 24 July 2017

Aled Davies 2017

He entered the event as the favourite; and how he justified it.

On Saturday evening, in the Olympic Staddium London, Aled Davies won the F42 shot put title at the World Para Athletics championships with a massive throw of 17.52m which was more than three metres ahead of the silver medallist and more than a metre better than his own world record of 16.13m.

Brilliant gold for Jake Saturday 22 July 2017

Jake Heyward 2017 Euro U20 champ

Cardiff's Jake Heyward ran a brilliant tactical race to win the gold medal and become European under 20 champion at 1500m this afternoon in Grosseto, Italy.

Taking the lead around 150m from the start, from this point on Jake controlled the race. The pace hotted up at the bell and Jake opened up a lead of about five metres. His speed over the final 400m meant that no-one was able to reduce the gap and Jake crossed the finish line the clear winner in 3:56.73.

Silver for Sarah Friday 21 July 2017

Sarah Omoregie

Cardiff's Sarah Omoregie produced the performance of her life to take the silver medal at the Commonwealth Youth Games yesterday.

Sarah was well clear of the bronze medallist with a throw of 16.74m which is not only a club and Welsh record but a British record as well.

Naomi Reid (800m) and Lauren Evans (100m hurdles) will be starting in their heats later today.

On their bikes Wednesday 19 July 2017

Andrew Seary and Vince Jones

Last Saturday he saw the BAL team on its way to a hoped for promotion; today he is off to Paris - by bike.

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.

Para gold and fourth Tuesday 18 July 2017

Aled Davies 2017

World record holder Aled Davies won his third F42 discus world title at the World Para Athletic Championships on Sunday when he set a championship record of 51.54m. He is the current world record holder and was the hot favourite for another gold.

Steve Morris just missed out on a medal last night, finishing fourth in the 1500m final.

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. 

YDL Junior team come-back Sunday 16 July 2017

YDL Lower Promo Swindon 2017

After missing out on an automatic spot in the regional final, Cardiff's UK Youth Development League (lower age group) team was forced to compete to retain its place in next season's Midlands Premier Division at a promotion match in Swindon yesterday.

Led by a powerful under 15 squad, Cardiff comfortably won the match to regain its place and the club, athletes and team managers can breathe again.
