Summer in Swansea Monday 23 May 2016

Nia Grundy 2016

The forecast had promised early rain but sunshine later. No such luck - there was heavy rain for most of the day along with cold and wind. These were the conditions for the second round of this season's UK YDL (lower age group) at Swansea last Saturday 21st May. Luckily, the high jump and pole vault competitions could be held indoors.

After finishing third in the first round on 24th April, Cardiff took second place behind Swansea on Saturday, pushing Cardiff Archers into third spot. After two rounds, Cardiff AAC and Cardiff Archers both have 9 league points, with Archers narrowly ahead on match points.

Season's best for Rhys Friday 20 May 2016

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's Rhys Williams showed that he is returning to good form with a season's best time of 49.85 for 400m hurdles, for fifth place in the international event at the Ostrava Golden Spike meeting (Czech Republic) today, 20th May. This time takes him to the top of the latest UK rankings.

At the same meeting, David Omoregie could manage only eighth place in the 110m hurdles with 13.93.

Treasurer needed Thursday 19 May 2016

The club is looking for someone to take over as treasurer from Steve Davies.

Steve has been an excellent treasurer for the past two years but has been forced reluctantly to step down because of pressure in his day job. 

If you are interested to help the club in this way (or can suggest someone who is) please contact chairman Bernie Plain (07976 368 543) as soon as possible. You can be assured of plenty of help in what is an important role.

GB call-up for Kristian Thursday 19 May 2016

Kristian Jones 2015

Cardiff's Kristian Jones has been rewarded for his fine early season form with a call-up to the Great Britain junior 4x100m squad for the Loughborough Intenational on Sunday next. This follows his personal best times at 100m (10.53) and 200m (21.23) in the opening British Athletics League match in Cardiff on 7th May.

Kristian will also contest the individual 200m in the Welsh team, along with a host of club-mates.

Regional championships Sunday 15 May 2016

Regional Championships 2016

On a sunny day but with a cold wind early on, the South and East Wales regional championships were held in Brecon yesterday, 14th May. Cardiff athletes usually do well in these championships and yesterday was no exception with Cardiff vests to the fore in most of the events.

Triple gold medal winners were Luca Contino (under 15 boys' 100m, high jump and shot put) and Harri Wheeler-Sexton (100m hurdles, pole vault and long jump) while siblings Ffion and Jac Palmer each took gold in their respective hammer competitions; Ffion once again breaking her own club record with 52.93m and Jac setting his best throw of the year, very close to his own personal best.

Lucky Friday 13th Sunday 15 May 2016

Aled Davies

Friday the 13th is said to be an unlucky date, but not for Cardiff's Aled Davies who, last Friday broke his own category F42 shot put world record with a new personal best throw of 16.13m at the IPC grand prix in Arizona.

Aled, who is coached by Ryan Spencer Jones, is aiming to improve on the bronze medal he won at the Paralympics in London 2012 and could not have wished for a better start to the year.

Off to a flying start Saturday 7 May 2016

Gareth Warburton to Rhys Williams 2016

After the disappointment of relegation last season, Cardiff's senior men's team got this year's campaign off to a flying start with a resounding win at today's first round match in Cardiff.

On a generally fine day (interrupted by one rain-shower) but with a gusting wind, Cardiff led throughout the day and finished 46 points ahead of second placed Swansea. An excellent all-round team performance included several outstanding individual personal bests including those from Kristian Jones, Anax Da Silva, Jake Heyward, Simeon Clarence and Ciaran Lewis.

Code of Conduct Tuesday 3 May 2016

CAAC logo

The general committee of the club has issued a Code of Conduct that applies to all members as well as to parents of members.

The club has traditionally been a harmonious organisation with all those involved respecting and supporting each other and contributing to the furtherance of the high standing and quality of Cardiff AAC and its athletes. This is the ethos of a voluntary organisation and the vast majority of members and friends understand and demonstrate this spirit.

Pipped at the post Tuesday 3 May 2016

WJL April 16

Although thankfully the rain stayed away for most of the day, it was cold with a sharp wind for the first round of the Welsh Under 15 League in Cardiff last Saturday, 30th April.

With the lead changing during the day, Cardiff eventually settled for second place a mere 34 points behind Cardiff Archers; the same result as in the first round last year before Cardiff went on to win the overall title. 

Cardiff at BUCS Tuesday 3 May 2016

Numerous Cardiff AAC athletes were representing their universities at the BUCS championships in Bedford from 30 April to 3 May.

Getting his outdoor season off to a good start, with two clockings under 14 seconds, David Omoregie took the gold medal in the final of the 110m hurdles in 13.74.

Bronze medallist in the hammer throw, Jac Palmer was close to his personal best with 62.66m and will surely take Matthew Richards' club record of 64.17m this year.
