Special Recognition Award - Paul Darney

Special Recognition Award – October 2021

Paul Darney

The club would like to recognise and thank Paul for all his hard work with the Cross Country.

At the last fixture in Llandaff Fields and due to the lack of volunteers Paul manned the finishing funnel collecting finishing discs and ensuring the athletes had the correct results for all 8 races and a total of 4 hours. Paul in 80 next year!

Congratulations and thank you Paul

If it wasn’t for volunteers like Paul, then the club’s athletes would not be able to compete. If you could spare any time, even just an hour please contact the club office.

Junior Athlete of the month - Bryony Boyce

Junior Athlete of the Month – October 2021

Bryony Boyce

Bryony has had an exceptional few months, resulting in winning the Cardiff Bay 2km, winning both Cardiff Schools Year 7 Cross Countries races and being select to represent Wales at the London Mini Marathon. All these achievements are made even more outstanding as over the last 12 months she has battled back with real determination and courage from a life threating medical condition.

Congratulations and keep up the good work.

Senior Athlete of the month - Aled Davies

September 2021

Aled won the Paralympic Shot put Gold in Tokyo in September. Aled, who won discus gold and shot put bronze in London before the discus was dropped from the Rio programme, led from the second round of his event and although his winning effort of 15.33m was well off his best, the torrential rain made throwing very difficult. Well done Aled!
