Gold for Christian's team

Sunday 13 August 2017

When Great Britain's men's 4x100m relay team beat the USA to take the gold medal for the first time at a world championship last night, following the women's silver medal, how many knew that the coach to the successful squads is none other than Cardiff AAC's own Christian Malcolm.

Christian was recruited by UK Athletics a couple of years ago to guide the sprint relay teams and has been hugely successful.

Christian was himself an ever-present in the GB sprint relay team, invariably running the first leg, and would have been the automatic choice for the Olympic gold medal winning quartet in 2004 had not illness forced him out of the team at the last moment.

He himself has numerous championship medals including gold medals at both 100m and 200m in the world junior championships.

Congratulations to Christian and his teams.
