Harry Hillman - Olympic Champion Thursday 8 January 2015

Harry Hillman USA

No, it's not our Harry Hillman (at least, not yet) - who is still recovering from a bad fall (get back soon Harry) - but an American athlete who won three gold medals in the 1904 Olympic Games in St Louis, Missouri, USA.

He went on to compete in the 1906 Games in Athens and those in London in 1908.

Harry was quite an athlete and his medals in 1904 were won, all in Olympic record times, in the 200m, 400m and 400m hurdles.

He was also an exponent of the three legged race and set a world record for the 100yards.

Owen makes his name Tuesday 6 January 2015

Owen Haswell 2014


Cardiff AAC athlete Owen Haswell, a medical student currently at Bangor University, has made a name for himself by having a research paper published in The Lancet, the world-renowned journal of the medical profession which usually includes only work by leading medical experts.

 

Owen had researched the impact of the change from summer to winter time on the levels of physical activity carried out and discovered that there was a big drop once the clocks went back in October.

Indoors - Days 1&2 Monday 5 January 2015

Indoors

After finishing 2014 on a high note at the Nos Galan races, Cardiff AAC athletes got 2015 off to a great start at the South and East Wales indoor championships held at the NIAC in Cardiff Saturday and yesterday, 3rd and 4th January.

A second day had been added to the championships to cope with the high number of entries and Cardiff athletes finished the day with numerous medals, including clean sweeps of gold, silver and bronze in the under 17 men's 1500m, in the under 17 women's 60m, the under 13 boys' 60m and the under 17 men's pole vault. 

Nos Galan successes Friday 2 January 2015

With plenty of Cardiff AAC vests on display, the club ended 2014 on a high note at the popular Nos Galan races on New Year's Eve in Mountain Ash.

With kind weather conditions (no rain this year) Cardiff athletes figured prominently in the results with clean sweeps in the 12-13 and 14-15 girls' races and seven Cardiff senior men in the first 13 of the Elite race.

James Vincent was the winner of the 14-15 boys' race.

Congratulations Tuesday 23 December 2014

After a ceremony at St Augustine's Church in Rumney, Cardiff, that Leila had attended as a small girl, Rhys, Leila and their families moved to the Celtic Manor Resort where they were joined by friends and celebrated well into the night.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION Friday 19 December 2014

Indoors

Owing to an unprecedented late rush of entries for the U17/U15/U13 South Wales/East Wales/South West England Indoor Championships and Junior Open Indoor event at NIAC on Sunday 4th January some events have now been moved to Saturday 3rd January to ease the congested timetable.

A one-day timetable was unrealistic and, in order to cope, a number of events for South Wales and East Wales athletes, who are local to the venue, will take place on Saturday 3rd January.

All Members - IMPORTANT Thursday 18 December 2014

Have you moved? Changed your email address or mobile phone number?

It is important that we have up to date details as we communicate with all our members by email and/or mobile phone.

We are aware of some members who have missed out on Welsh team selections because of a change of address that we did not know about.

So, please help us to help you.
