Tribute to Christian Thursday 17 July 2014

 Christian Malcolm

Cardiff’s Christian Malcolm finally hung up his spikes at the Welsh Athletics International on Wednesday evening, 15th July, running his favourite first leg of the Welsh team’s 4 x 100m relay.

His final appearance, at the Cardiff International Stadium, was greeted warmly by appreciative spectators and fellow athletes and his speech afterwards was received with a prolonged applause.

Christian has certainly been Wales most successful ever sprinter and his tally of medals and appearances at major championships speaks for itself.

Euro disappointments Wednesday 16 July 2014

Rhys Williams

Despite believing that they had done enough to warrant selection, neither Brett Morse nor Rhys Williams has been included in the Great Britain team for the European Championships to be held in Zurich in August.

Brett had achieved the qualifying distance of 63m in the discus at a specially arranged competition in Cardiff on Saturday but the selectors apparently decided that the competition did not have the appropriate permit and that Brett's performance could not count.

Rhys's situation was different as, although he had achieved the qualifying time in the 400m hurdles, he had missed out on first or second place at the official trials (which would have given him an automatic place in the team). The selectors opted to give the third place in the team to Swansea's Dai Greene.

Juniors in final Wednesday 16 July 2014

Ciaran Lewis and Iolo Hughes 2014

Ciaran Lewis's Great Britain debut saw him finish 16th out of 45 at the European junior mountain running championships in Gap, France on Saturday last, 12th July. Ciaran was the third finishing British runner and reversed the position in the trial when North Walian Iolo Highes had finished ahead of him.

The British team finished in fourth place, just out of the medals but a big improvement on the previous year's seventh.

Brett qualifies Saturday 12 July 2014

At a specially arranged competition held today at the Cardiff International Stadium, Cardiff's Brett Morse achieved the qualifying mark set for the Great Britain team to take part in the European Championships with a throw of 63.34m. This distance takes him back to No. 1 in the current UK rankings. Zane Duquemin, also seeking to qualify, threw 60.47m.

Cardiff's British Athletics League team travelled to London yesterday with a heavily depleted squad and paid the price of too many unfilled events, finishing eighth and slipping to fourth overall with one round to go this season.

The bright spots amongst the team's results included Brett Morse's revenge win over Zane Duquemin, who had pipped him for the British title the previous weekend, Brett's win in the B shot put and Ryan Leonard's win in the B javelin.
