Welcome to Wales' Premier Athletic Club
British Athletics' Club of the Year 2013


Winning start for senior men Saturday 11 May 2013


Cardiff's British Athletics League team got off to a perfect start by winning the opening match of the season, held today at Cardiff International Sports Stadium.

Fresh from his European leading time a few days earlier, European Champion Rhys Williams led by example and won the opening track event, the 400m hurdles, in 50.03, an excellent time in the difficult conditions; a very strong headwind in the home straight and no meaningful opposition. Paul Bennett matched his team mate by winning the 400m hurdles B race.

Cardiff win followed Cardiff win and the final result was a clear win by 12 points from demoted Premiership team City of Liverpool.

Rhys off to flying start Thursday 9 May 2013

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's Rhys Williams got his season off to the best possible start, winning an international 400m hurdles in Namur, Belgium, yesterday in his fastest time for three years.

Rhys dominated the race to clock 49.11 secs, almost two seconds ahead of second placer Ben Sumner.

This time makes Rhys, the reigning European champion, the first Welsh athlete to hit the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games ‘A’ standard and in comfortably inside the British Athletics 'A' standard (49.40s) for the World Championships in Moscow this summer.

GB vest for Beth Davies Wednesday 1 May 2013

Bethan Davies 2013

Cardiff's Bethan Davies has been rewarded for her record breaking win in the national 20k walking championship with a place in the great Britain team to contest the European Cup of Race Walking to be held in Dudince, Slovakia on 19th May.

In last Sunday's national championships, Beth produced one of the fastest ever 20km debuts by a British woman in taking her first National title at the University of Warwick venue. 

Bethan competed in her first race walking race only a year ago and has made remarkable progress as she clocked 1.44.15 for a new Welsh Record and to move to 12th on the UK All Time list. In the early stages of the race, she walked stride for stride with fellow Welsh athlete Heather Lewis but began to pull away shortly before the halfway mark which she passed in 50.19 well inside her previous best for the distance.

The competition in Slovakia will be a big step up for Betan and we wish her the best of luck
