Da Iawn Lily - she was credited with athlete of the month for October because she showed real grit and determination when she participated in her first cross country event in Cardiff. Although she found some parts of it difficult, she stuck at it and kept going. Keep training hard and watch your times improve.
Congratulation to Tara Nation who was part of a very successful Cowbridge Under 13 Cross Country Team who won the Welsh Inter School Championships. Tara did particularly well when she can 9th in her race. At the club we recognise that she has bags of potential and we are looking forward to seeing how her performance improves over the forthcoming season.
This month there were 2 outstanding athletes who both competed in the Welsh Athletics Junior Open and South Wales regional championships. Silver medals were won by Nia and Elliott. Nia's long jump, a pb with a jump of 3.94metres. This from Nia who was one of the youngest competitors in that competition was the PAC performance of the day. Elliott also had a pb in the shot throwing 6.85m - excellent performances by both.
Again athlete of the month goes to Mia Williams who broke her own indoor shot record by throwing an indoor PB record of 6.54m in Day 2 of the indoor Regional Championship. She came second in the South East region and three overall. Not bad for someone who was ill for over three weeks and hadn't trained. Da iawn

Athlete of the month goes to Ben. A shot and javelin throw who is starting to develop his glide in the shot and maximising his potential. He has been setting himself targets in the shot and achieve them every time. Keep up the fantastic effort and we are confident at the club that you will pass that 6 metre mark really soon.
This month the accolade of athlete of the month goes to Simeon Richards. He now seems to have found his events as a thrower taking a keen interest in the shot and javelin. He has shown determination and real enthusiasm in these events and if he continues to progress he will turn into a fantastic thrower - da iawn.
This month again is shared and goes to Nia and Mia. They both competed in the South Wales Regional Championships and performed out of their skins. Nia obtained a gold medal in the long jump and Mia collected a gold in the javelin and shot and a silver medal in the discus.

He ran 800m in 2min 42secs which is a time only 4 seconds off being put on the Power of 10 of an under 13 athlete. He is a true talent and should be congratulated for his performance. Well done and watch the time come tumbling down.
July's athlete of the month goes the Eurion who although only recently joined the club has made a dramatic impact in the club as he has broken the club record and is the second highest ranked 1st year on the Power of 10. Keep training hard and next year you'll reap the rewards.
