Hero of the Month - November 2016
Tom Meyer joined the club more than 20 years ago, took up coaching and has been an ever-present since. He is a respected sprints coach and has helped numerous sprinters, many of whom have gone on to achieve great success, Notable amongst these was Tim Benjamin who started as a 100/200m runner and went on to become one of Britain's best 400m runners. Current Welsh number one 100m runner Sam Gordon joined as a 14 year old and was guided in his early years by Tom.
In recent years, his work has meant that Tom spends long periods away from Britain but, whenever he returns home, he is back coaching at the club. The club and the sport owe a great deal to those like Tom Meyer.
