Another award for Tanni Friday 14 March 2014

Tanni Grey- Thompson

Cardiff AAC life member Tanni Grey-Thompson is one of a select band of Welsh men and women who have been honoured in the inaugural St David Awards for "extraordinary achievements".


Following her career as one of the first superstars of Paralympic athletics, Cardiff born Tanni has gone on to become one of the country's leading spokespersons for disabled sport. Born with spina bifida, Tanni has been wheelchair bound from an early age but overcame her disability with outstanding success as her 15 medals (11 gold) at the Paralympic Games testify.

Indoor PBs Tuesday 11 March 2014

David Omoregie

Although David Omoregie's world class junior 60m hurdles time of 7.50 (placing him the second best ever) was by far and away the highlight of the under 20 international held at NIAC on Sunday last, 9th March, numerous Cardiff athletes posted personal best performances, which auger well for the outdoor season ahead.

David's hurdles time improved his previous best of 7.62 by a huge margin and he is now looking forward to the IAAF World Junior Championships in June. It will also be interesting to see what he can do over the higher, senior hurdles where he has already shown his ability indoors.

Inter-Counties cross country Sunday 9 March 2014

Jake Heyward 2014

A good number of Cardiff athletes travelled to Birmingham yesterday, 8th March, to test themselves against the best of Britain in the national inter-counties cross country championships.

Although the ground conditions were muddy and heavy going, the weather was dry but chilly.

The best performance of the day by a Cardiff athlete was Jake Heyward's excellent 10th place (out of 280 finishers) in the under 15 boys' race.

David Omoregie 2014 Euro record

David Omoregie's run of fine form continued in Sheffield at the England championships over the weekend when he smashed his previous best to set British and European under 20 records for the 60m hurdles.

In both the heats and final of his event, he clocked identical times - 7.62 - to eliminate the previous best of 7.65 set by James Gladman a year ago.

Perhaps he could have gone even faster if he had tied his shoelaces (see picture)!

From country to road Wednesday 26 February 2014

Ieuan Thomas

With the final Gwent League race of this season taking place on Saturday, we shall move on to road running - the Welsh Road Relays Championships are being held in Ynysangharad Park, Pontypridd on Sunday 16th March.

Cardff teams traditionally do well in these relays so we want 2014 to be another successful year.

There are races for all ages from primary school athletes to masters athletes and, if you wish to take part, please get in touch by Sunday next, 2nd March at the latest.

Weekend successes Wednesday 26 February 2014

Mica Moore

Cardiff athletes were competing with success over last weekend, at the British Universities indoor championships in Sheffield and the Armagh international road races in Northern Ireland.

In Sheffield, James Thie, representing Cardiff Metropolitan University, took the 1500m title, with Matthew Edwards sixth in the final. Mica Moore was second in the 60m and fourth in the 200m while Dewi Hammond was third in the 60m.

Representing Loughborough, David Guest was second in the long jump with a leap of 7.22m and fourth in the shot put with 14.27m.

Coaches needed Wednesday 19 February 2014

Following a thorough review, the club is set to launch an exciting new initiative for its younger members. The popular Track Rats group, which was created by senior coach Dave Hawthorn more than 10 years ago, will be re-named the Cardiff Athletics Academy. The Academy will cater for the under-11 and under-13 age groups and will offer the best possible introduction to athletics. 

In order to meet an expected increase in Academy members we are looking to recruit additional coaches. Academy coaches will be paid and if you are interested, please contact club secretary Ann Cooper (acooper.caac@sky.com) who will give you further information.

More indoor medals Tuesday 18 February 2014

A day after the Welsh cross country championships, the action switched indoors to the final phase of the Welsh indoor championships; those for the under 20 and under 15 age groups.

 

Once again, Cardiff athletes won plenty of medals with James Vincent showing particular versatility; following up his earlier titles over 800m and 1500m with a third title, this time in the high jump.

Cardiff dominate champs Saturday 15 February 2014

Cardiff athletes turned out in force at today's Welsh Cross Country Championships in Carmarthen, winning individual and team medals in every age category except senior women.

Pride of place goes to the under 13 girls where the first six places were taken by Cardiff athletes and the teams took gold and bronze medals. Team golds were also won by the under 15 boys, under 17 men, under 17/20 women and under 20 men (pictured).
