Lifetime award for Lynn Saturday 15 December 2012

Lynn Davies

Cardiff AAC life member Lynn Davies received the prestigious Lifetime Award at the recent BBC Wales sports personality of the year ceremony. Lynn (70), who took the gold medal in the long jump at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo, is a previous double winner (in 1964 and 1966) of the individual personality of the year award and has contribiuted a lifetime of service to athletics and is a worthy recipient of this latest honour. Although starting as a triple jumper, Lynn was Britain's leading long jumper for a decade, setting a British record in 1968 that was not beaten until 2002. Naturally, he remains the Welsh and club record holder. He was European champion in 1966 and Commonwealth champion in 1966 and 1970. (There were no world championships in those days.)

Congratulations Tuesday 11 December 2012
