Rhys in Euro team

Tuesday 28 June 2016

Cardiff's Rhys Williams, former European champion at 400m hurdles, has been included in the Great Britain team for the European Athletics championships which take place in Amsterdam next week.

Ranked number two in the UK with 49.22, Rhys clinched his place after coming third in the British Championships last weekend. He now has a good opportunity to secure his second Olympic qualifying time and persuade the selectors to add him to the team for Rio.

In a distinguished career, Rhys has the unique distinction of having won individual European Gold medals over 400m hurdles at Junior, Under 23 and senior level, as well as silver and bronze at senior level. He also has 4x400m relay silver medals at European Junior and Under 23 levels, not to mention a Commonwelth Games bronze medal.

His full list of medals is:

Gold: European Junior 2003; European Under 23 2005; European 2012.
Silver: European 2010; European 4x400m 2006; European 4x400 Under 23 2005.
Bronze: European 2006; Commonwealth Games 2010.

Good luck to Rhys in Amsterdam.
