Rhys goes top Monday 16 June 2014

Rhys Williams

Cardiff's Rhys Williams showed a welcome return to form with a 48.95 400m hurdles in Geneva on Saturday, 14th June, that takes him to the top of the UK rankings.

After being stuck around 50 seconds in his first few races and then false starting in Oslo mid-week, Rhys needed to produce his training form in a race and this he has now done, with a time that is only just outside his personal best of 48.84. In a close race, Rhys was pushed into second place by Thomas Barr of Ireland, who set a national record in the process.
