It is with great sadness that Cardiff Athletics has learnt of the death of Bob Maplestone. Bob was a founder member of Cardiff AAC in 1968, which was formed out of the amalgamation of the then two Cardiff clubs – Roath and Birchgrove Harriers. He was a key member of the Cardiff team in the early 1970s which became Britain’s strongest club.
