Harry was one of several Cardiff multi medallists in all age groups and it was encouraging to see so many athletes trying several events.

Rhys and Leila

Christmas time 2013 will have an added importance for Rhys Williams and Leila James as they have just announced their engagement.

Rhys popped the question in New York a couple of days ago and Leila said yes.

Leila's mother Helen, herself a former Welsh international sprinter and current club sprints coach, is naturally delighted and says that this gives her an excuse to go out and buy a new hat.

Everyone in Cardiff AAC congratulates Rhys and Leila and wishes them every happiness in their future life together.
