This weekend will be extremely busy for Cardiff athletes with at least three very important competitions taking place.

At Cardiff International Sports Stadium there will be the Welsh Schools championships, with numerous Cardiff members representing their regions and in search of good performances and medals.

The senior men's British Athletics League travels to Windsor where hopes of promotion to the Premier division could depend on a solid performance in this the third of this season's four rounds.

The senior women's UK Women's League team have a longer journey ahead of them as they travel to Wigan; a stronger team result will be needed to maintain the team's position in division one.

Good luck to all our athletes.

Tasia Stephens

On a cool and windy evening last night, 3rd July, fourteen throwers assembled to take part in the John Walters Memorial Throws Meeting. This meeting remembers John, who was a  leading Welsh  thrower for over thirty years and was still good enough to be a member of Cardiff's BAL team at the age of 60.


Competitions were held in Shot Put, Discus, Hammer and Javelin for senior and other athletes who had achieved minimum standards.

Cardiff produced 14 individual winners as well as taking the under 17 men's 4x100m relay and the under 17 women's 4x300m.

Cardiff athletes picked up more medals on the second day of the 2013 Welsh championships yesterday.

Fine run by Rhys Sunday 30 June 2013

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's Rhys Williams produced one of the finest runs of his career today at the IAAF Diamond League event at Birmingham's Alexander stadium.

European Champion Rhys produced a storming run in the unfavourable lane seven to take second place in a world class 400m hurdles race behind 2012 Olympic bronze medallist Javier Culson.

Rhys's time of 48.93 is his second fastest ever but it was the nature of the performance that was more impressive than the time.

Welsh rival and reigning world champion Dai Greene was fifth.

 

 

Welsh Champs 2013 Day 1 Saturday 29 June 2013

Paul Bennett

The first day of the 2013 Welsh Athletics championships was held today at Cardiff International Sports Stadium in thankfully warm sunshine, albeit with a tricky wind that did not help the sprinters.

Cardiff athletes turned out in numbers and won 31 medals, 12 of which were gold.

One of the best performances came from Paul Bennett (pictured winning his event) who set a new personal best of 47.92 in winning the senior men's 400m. Not to be out done, Emma Pullen also set a new personal best in the senior women's 400m with a championship best time of 52.92. Consistent Harry Hillman also set new championship and personal figures, winning the under 15 boys 80m hurdles in 11.27.

Cardiff AAC will be organising a special throws competition on Wednesday, 3rd July, starting at 6.45pm.

The competition is open to seniors, juniors, under 17 and under 15 athletes who have achieved specified minimum standards so the events should be of good quality. Events covered will be Shot Put, Discus, Hammer and Javelin. 

The competition is in memory of John Walters, one of the club's longest serving and most successful athletes who represented Wales and Great Britain on many occasions. He competed regularly for the British League team and, at one point, held the League record for the highest number of appearances by a club athlete across all the divisions of the league. John died a number of years ago.

David Omoregie

Cardiff's David Omoregie has been included in the first round of selections for the Great Britain team to compete in the European Junior Championships to be held in Rieti, Italy, from 18th to 21st July.

One of Wales' most talented young athletes, David (17) is currently ranked fourth in Europe in his speciality event, the 110m hurdles, with a time of 13.68 seconds, and clinched his selection for the British team with a silver medal in last weekend's England championships and European trials in Bedford.
