Welcome to Wales' Premier Athletic Club
together we are one

Congratulations to Rhys Williams and Leila James on their marriage yesterday.

After a ceremony at St Augustine's Church in Rumney, Cardiff, that Leila had attended as a small girl, Rhys, Leila and their families moved to the Celtic Manor Resort where they were joined by friends and celebrated well into the night.

Rhys (multi medallist international 400m hurdler) and Leila (daughter of Cardiff AAC coach Helen James and herself a former athlete) met through their membership of Cardiff AAC, as did Rhys's brother James and Imogen who themselves were married earlier this year.

What a sporting family the Williams are. Proud father "JJ" was an international athlete before starring on the rugby field, James was a middle distance runner and former Cardiff club captain and Katherine also competed as a 400m hurdler for Cardiff before retiring from competition.

Rhys and Leila are off to a honeymoon in the sun and we wish them every happiness in their life together.
