Welcome 2018 Freshers

Fri, 14th Sep 18

This weekend we are looking forward to welcoming the 2018 cohort of freshers athletes onto campus. As club athletics begins its end of season hibernation, University athletics sparks into life over the next month. Director of Athletics, James Thie commented ”This years intake is perhaps the most exciting we have had for a number of years, there is real quality across both the men’s and women’s teams. Given that we have upgraded our indoor facility again this summer we are very excited about the next year of athletics at Cardiff Met.”
