Cardiff's UK Women's Athletic League team produced a much improved performance in the third and final match of the series on Sunday last, 4th August, at Kingston but narrowly failed to maintain its place in Division one.

After arriving late at the stadium because of extensive road closures in the area, the team achieved its best result of the season, finishing in fifth place on the day and only one point behind sixth placed Wigan and District H overall.

Cardiff's "team" consisted of James Thie, Alex Donald and Sue Hooper; James contesting the 100m, 200m and 400m whilst Alex took part in the 3000m and javelin (!) and Sue the 200m and 400m.

Cardiff's senior men's team clinched promotion back to the Premier Division of the British Athletics League in Liverpool yesterday, 3rd August.

With promotion already assured and despite having only one winner (Carl Hill in the 800m A race), the all-round team performance was sufficient to gain fourth place on the day and second over the four match series. The day finished on a high note with Cardiff winning both the 4x100m and 4x400m relays.

Games record for Harry Sunday 4 August 2013

Harry Hillman and Ryan James

Cardiff's Harry Hillman (14, pictured with Ryan James) ran brilliantly to win the under 16 boys' 100m hurdles in a Games record time of 13.65 seconds at the Celtic Games held yesterday (3rd August) in Colwyn Bay. Versatile Harry's performance was particulary good as it was achieved into a -1.3 m/s headwind.

In generally blustery conditions other Cardiff AAC winners for Wales were Ryan Lee (under 18 400m in 48.36) and Kristian Jones who was deprived of a big personal best 10.97 in the under 16 boys' 100m by a +2.4 m/s following wind.

One of the best performances of the evening was Mica Moore's determined run to win the senior women's 100m, edging into second place Wales' Commonwealth Games representative Elaine O'Neill.


In the Ann Hill memorial one mile, Tom Marshall was a close second, narrowly missing the four minute barrier in a personal best (outdoor) time of 4:01.04 (he has a slightly faster indoor time).
