Tips from the top

Wednesday 14 July 2010

Cardiff's international 400m hurdler Rhys Williams took time out on Monday last, 12th July, to pass on some words of advice to three of Cardiff's young sprinter/hurdlers. Rhys is pictured at the club's home stadium with Rebecca Foley, Lara Durani and Tom Phillips, all of whom are coached by Helen James who arranged the session.

Rebecca, Lara and Tom all said that Rhys had been extremely helpful to them and were grateful for the time he gave them.

Rhys himself is completing his training for the European Championships in Barcelona which start in just under two weeks time. He won the bronze medal four years ago in Gothenburg and hopes to improve on that this time.

He is enjoying his best season for four years and is full of confidence that he can do well. He leaves for the British team's preparation camp in Italy on Friday of this week and will go directly to Barcelona from there.

Cardiff's Christian Malcolm is also in the team and we wish them both the very best of luck.
