Curtis back with a bang Tuesday 19 September 2017

Curtis Mathews 2014

After leaving athletics for rugby a couple of years ago, decathlete Curtis Mathews missed the challenge of the ten events and is now back and on form, having the ambition to represent Wales in the next Commonwealth Games.

As one of the success stories of the Glasgow Games in 2014 when he produced no fewer than six personal bests for eighth place, Curtis has now surpassed that with a new personal best score of 7,500, equalling the B qualification standard and improving his own club record.

Welsh road medals Sunday 17 September 2017

WA Road relays 2017 u15

The Welsh road relay championships were held yesterday at Pembrey Country Park and Cardiff took medals in most of the races, including gold in the under 15 boys and under 11 girls.

Congratulations to everyone who raced today and a special thank you to those runners who still competed either as individuals or as part of an incomplete team, due to a large number of late withdrawals.

A great new initiative Wednesday 13 September 2017

Young leaders 2017

First Young Leaders start with Cardiff Athletics Academy

As a part of Cardiff AAC development for the future the club has introduced a Young Leaders volunteer programme which will work with the Academy and for the club during home competitions and events.

PBs for throwers Thursday 7 September 2017

The third Cardiff AAC Young Throwers Invitational and most successful competition to date took place at Cardiff International Sports Campus on Tuesday evening, 5th September.

No fewer than nine new personal bests were achieved by the competing athletes in the two disciplines, hammer and discus. Of particular note was Ethan Witchell’s 24.83m throw in the discus which ranks him as No.1 in Wales and No.11 in the UK, a fantastic achievement considering this is only his first year as an U13.

YDL final Monday 4 September 2017

A severely depleted Cardiff team travelled to the final of the UK Youth Development League (upper age group) in Birmingham yesterday and, not surprisingly, finished in eighth place of eight teams.

The team depended on some excellent performances from the under 17 athletes to compensate for an almost absent contingent of under 20s and Jay Morse was awarded the Norma Blaine Award as the male athlete of the match. And Lana Culliford set a new under 20 club record of 64.64 for the 400m hurdles.

Golden Three Sunday 27 August 2017

Jeremiah Azu 2017

Three Cardiff AAC athletes were in Bedford yesterday for the first day of the England Athletics under 15 and under 17 championships (which count as UK championships) and returned with gold medals.

Jeremiah Azu won the under 17 100m title in an outstanding 10.65 seconds which not only smashed his personal best and sets a club record but is the fastest 100m ever recorded by a sixteen year old Welsh athlete. Joining him on the gold medal table was Jay Morse who set a new personal best and club record of 55.28m for the U17 men's discus and consolidated his position as number one in the UK. The third of the golden trio was Kiara Frizelle who took the under 17 women's 1500m in 4:32.31.

Champion Charlotte Friday 25 August 2017

Charlotte Arter 2015

Cardiff's Charlotte Arter improved her personal best time by 14 seconds to win the BMC grand prix 10,000m at Stretford last Saturday, 19th August and become the England Athletics (equals UK) champion. British international Gemma Steel was a distant second. Charlotte's time of 32:37.52 takes her to seventh on the current UK rankings for 10,000m.

Clara Evans was eighth in the same race,

Also competing in Stretford were Alex Coomber, Joe Reid, Matt Clowes and Owen Haswell, all of whom then ran for Cardiff the following day in the final BAL match in Manchester.

Didn't they do well? Wednesday 23 August 2017

The next generation of Cardiff AAC Junior athletes enjoyed an outstanding weekend at Welsh Athletics Junior Track & Field Championships held in Wrexham last weekend, 19-20 September 2017, picking up 13 gold medals, 12 silver and 7 bronze, a total of 32 medals.

There were many strong performances from Cardiff AAC athletes with the under 13, 15, 17 and 20 age groups in action, resulting in an extremely successful weekend and great preparation for the up-coming UK Youth Development League final in Birmingham on the 3 September.

BAL 4 2017

Heading into the final round of the British Athletics League series with a three point margin over second placed Swansea, Cardiff's senior men wanted to finish with a flourish in Manchester's Sportcity yesterday. With home team Sale fighting to get back into the top flight (they needed to win with a two place advantage over Swansea), the result was in doubt until the final relays.

In the event, Cardiff beat Sale by a mere 9 points to do their Welsh rivals a favour by pushing Sale into second with Swansea third.
